About this Cook
One of my favorite things to do is to make homestyle food but with a twist... I enjoy taking it to an elevated level. I take pride in delivering "champagne taste" on a "beer budget".
My favorite things to cook
I'm ALWAYS trying new things. But I definitely enjoy making everything I possibly can from scratch. I feel like its cheating if you use many box/canned ingredients [provided what produce & fresh foods are available in your area]
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family ALWAYS has big dinners & gatherings during the holidays. We always take turns at a different family member's house. The women usually do most of the cooking while the guys blow around some hot air lol. Some of my fondest memories are watching my grandma, aunts, mother, & many other family members cook together. :) Thats where I discovered my love for cooking.
My cooking triumphs
I find I'm best at making comfort food & baking goodies :)
My cooking tragedies
I've had a few, but I just look at them as lessons learned lol.

Rosemary Shortbread Cookies
A lovely delicate aromatic cookie! The only change I made was instead of the decorative sugar I gave each cookie a half dip in white chocolate. Delish!

Chocolate Crinkles II
I made these for my holiday goodie bags this Christmas, they were absolutely divine! The only change I made was instead of using 2tsp of vanilla I used 1tsp vanilla & 1tsp pure mint extract. They were like soft thin mints! Everybody [including myself] loved them! I've made alot of cookies in my day & these are definitely in the running for best yet! I'll definitely be making these again, and SOON! lol. :)

Delicious Stuffed Potato Pancakes
I made these tonight for dinner & they were absolutely delish!! The only thing I added was some shredded sharp cheddar cheese to the meat mixture. I had some of it leftover so I made meatballs with it, which were delicious as well! :) I'll definitely make these again!
