About this Cook
I am a 20 year old learning cook who makes meals for myself and my Army boyfriend. I also used to cook for my family and cook for friends. I love learning new things and making new recipes. Trying new foods are one of my favorite things to do. I hope to become proficient in making Asian, Italian and Indian food at some point in my life. I like wearing crazy hats while I cook!
My favorite things to cook
Oh there are so many. I love making any sort of pasta or any sort of dessert. When I have the time, homemade bread and preserves are divine but I rarely have time to do it. Oh! And chocolate cheesecakes. Yummm
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every year at Christmas I make peppermint bark and every year at Thanksgiving I make at least one cheesecake.
My cooking triumphs
I came up with a really phenomenal soup recipe a few years ago that is always requested by my family members. Maybe I'll post the recipe on here one day.
My cooking tragedies
While making a Thanksgiving turkey one year, my mom didn't tell me to take out the bag of giblets and stuff so the turkey cooked with that in it. Sooo glad we had a second turkey at the house that year!

Healing Cabbage Soup
I made this for dinner tonight. Oh my lordy, it was awesome. I did make a couple small changes just because of personal preference and everyone here ate two bowls at least. I added a whole leek instead of the onion because I love leeks and 4 cloves of garlic. Also, sauteed some button mushrooms with the leek and garlic. I used chicken broth and some water instead of the bouillon cubes because it was in my cabinet. And I used a whole 2 pound cabbage. It was perfect for me because I'm sick. My nephew is on a special diet and he ate three bowls. Soo happy with this. It is on the meal rotation hahaha

Grape Jelly
I made this today and got 6 (8 ounce) jars and all were filled up but one. That one is the house jar all the rest are being given out as gifts. I only added 5 cups of sugar and it was plenty sweet. My bf compared it to Welches Grape jelly and said it was delicious. Very easy to make as well. Will be making again soon!!!

Watermelon Preserves
Just finished making these. Got five half pints. They look beautiful so far and they are all sitting except for one that is in the fridge for us to try tonight. I tried a little from the pot and it was delish. I followed the recommendation to use lemon and orange and can't wait to try this on some toast. Does anyone on here have a recommendation on where to store it and for how long? Did anyone leave it a while before opening the jar? I haven't canned in a while so I was hoping to get some advice.
