About this Cook
My cooking tragedies
my first ever away-from-home Thanksgiving turkey didn't defrost all the way in time. absolute disaster!

Sturdy Whipped Cream Frosting
wow this is delicious. I used the new white chocolate cream cheese by Philadelphia and the vanilla I used is more like vanilla syrup with seeds so it has seeds in the frosting to make it a bit more swanky. ;) so light and sweet and yummy!

Mom's Corny Pork Chops
I had no idea creamed corn would make such a nice gravy for the pork! left out the water and onions and we got a nice brownish sauce the consistency of gravy with little bits of corn in it, haha, very very easy supper. we had it with mashed potatoes, salad, and the other half of the can of corn (we only did 2 servings instead of 4) on the side. really nice! I'd make this again.

Bacon Risotto
this is SO good. I save on dishes by cooking the bacon in the same pot as the rice, and leaving it in there with the rice while it's cooking. I don't notice a huge difference in flavor (you'd think it'd be extra bacony!). this is really delicious, I hardly changed the recipe at all. I don't add parmesan but it still tastes awesome.
