Since this month is Presidents' Day in the USA, February's theme is to research a favorite food of someone who is (or has been) in political power (from any country). Try the recipe, take a pic and email the pic and a review to ARmonthlychallenge@gmail.com by the end of February. I will include it in a blog post at the beginning of March. This website might help some of you: http://www.foodtimeline.org/presidents.html<

Fun idea for the theme. Bill Clinton's Chess Pie recipe is right here on AR. This is a good chance to learn a little history along with a new recipe or two.

Yes, I really enjoyed the last month's theme, so I think this one will be fun too.

About Me
I am a food addict and don't plan on recovering any time soon! I truly enjoy cooking and baking, though I still have much to learn. In addition to kitchen time, reading is one of my favorite hobbies. Also, I am the oldest of seven children, and my husband and I spend a lot of time with both of our families, because our parents and siblings live close. Finally, this is my second year in the Allrecipes Brand Ambassador program. This means that I volunteer to promote Allrecipes, because I love it!
My favorite things to cook
I enjoy trying new foods, but I often cook chicken dishes, because they are fairly easy and cheap. I really enjoy baking, but my husband does not like many sweets (much to my chagrin!) So, I often volunteer to bake a dessert whenever we spend time with other people or attend a church activity.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My favorite cooking/baking traditions are those that occur the days before holidays. My mother and I sometimes stay up all night baking together (usually Greek & Jewish recipes handed down from my grandmothers), and it is truly a bonding time.
My cooking triumphs
Most of the recipes from Allrecipes lead to cooking success stories. Thank you to all the members of AR that have contributed recipes and reviews. They have been quite helpful!
My cooking tragedies
When I first began cooking, I had several poor attempts at using the broiler, most of which ended in a fire! I am happy to report that I have finally learned how to use it, after several tries. :)
