About this Cook
I've been cooking for my family for the last 10 years. I think that i'm getting better and it all has to do with this web site. This is where i started to learn about recipes and how to cook.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook the main dish. In fact, half the time it's the only thing I cook and my family is left wondering where the rest of the meal is.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I really don't have any cooking traditions. My mother never cooked, so i've learned everything on my own. I'm trying to put together some traditions.
My cooking triumphs
I'm not a baker and anytime a baked good turns out it is a triumph! Most of the time I have to make and re-make the same recipe many times to get it to come out right.
My cooking tragedies
Baking is almost always a tragedy for me. my muffins sink, my cakes burn and stick to the pan, and my cookies are to hard or under cooked.

Mexican Chicken and Black Bean Salad
This was really good. I did pan fry chicken strips added garlic, 1/2 a pkg taco seasoning and about 1/4 salsa. I warmed up the beans in the micro and served with all the toppings. it was light and perfect.

Spicy Honey Mustard Pork Roast
Wow, this was wonderful. I only used 1 tsp pepper and it was just right. I did add some water to the bottom of the pan. will make again.
