About this Cook
I'm just Jen. I'm not anything special, just a normal small town girl. I did not learn to cook from my mom. She was too much of the kitchen authoritarian. My job was to set the table and make the iced tea. When I first started cooking, I had one cookbook that was from a local church and I just started trying very basic things. I'm learning that I can actually cook fairly well. I'm getting braver and am developing my own twists on recipes. It's fun to see them flop or come out great.
My favorite things to cook
Chicken. Some pork. Making cookies cakes and pies.
My cooking triumphs
Made my first full thanksgiving meal last year (2010) and it turned out great!
My cooking tragedies
There have been so many, I couldn't possibly list them all.

Tater Tot Taco Casserole
Very easy to make. I found I didn't care too much for the black beans, but that's just my taste. It was a very big hit with the rest of the family. Next time I make it, I'll probably leave out the beans.
