About this Cook
Don't let my username fool you. I am no chef. You won't find me on TV or any magazine. Matter of fact you won't find me in the kitchen half the time. I am a recipe robber, a copycat, a fake and phony. What I am is a cook that wears a cool Ben Davis black apron in the kitchen. I definitely look the part. I steal a 4 star recipe make it exactly as presented and look for opportunity. I tweak it and perfect it and read the expressions on all six of my kids faces. I then turn it to a 5 star recipe and call it my own. At least at home anyways. I am a 4 star recipes worse nightmare. Beware! Why you should add me to your favorites! Because I cook a lot at home. I have to because its too expensive to take out six kids. I believe food should have the OMG factor. My mission is to give recipes the OMG factor so you can pretend your an amazing cook too. I won't let you down!

Mexican Corn on the Cob (Elote)
For those that have settled for parmesan chesse as a replacement to Cojita cheese, what a shame. This recipe AS IS does not need tweaking, modifying or any overhaul whatsoever. I tried the parmesan cheese method because I did not have all the ingredients, and at the time it deserved a very good rating, until I got my lazy butt to the store and got Coitja cheese. I finally made the real deal and the parmesan cheese method was instantly downgraded to OK. Make this corn as is and I guarantee you will be the gourmet griller you sought out to be. Cotija cheese all the way!

Easy Homemade Chili
This is not an entry into some chili cook off. I would review it entirely differently if it were. With some minor tweaks, this is a tasty, cheap, fast and easy meal without a doubt. Like others have reviewed, it's definitely a base recipe. I doubled the recipe. It lacked a kick and in my opinion was just on the verge of being bland. I made the following change and it made a hit at the table. Replace the half of the tomato sauce with a mexican tomato canned sauce called Salsa de Chile Fresco. Salsa de Chile Fresco is a tomato sauce with the ingredients : fresh chiles, tomatoes, onions, cilantro and garlic. This gives it just enough kick and flavor to get the taste buds working without killing your guests or your kids. Of course if you already have these ingredients, just add them to your sauce, but sticking to the theme of EASY is the goal here. I also used 3 cans of kidney beans as 2 cans was not enough to offset 2lbs of ground beef. Don't forget I doubled the recipe. Serve with tortilla chips. Objective met!
