About this Cook
Hi, I'm a mom of three children and since I can remember I have always loved to cook. To give you a little insight what I mean; since the age of around 12 or 13 I've been collecting recipes and trying them out. I later was professionally trained. I no longer work in the restaurant business, but I still love to cook.
My favorite things to cook
I've always loved baking and just about anything else. I especially love cooking around the holidays. There's nothing like baking cookies in the kitchen while watching a good-ole fashioned Christmas movie such as "It's a Wonderful Life". Nothing beats the homey feeling ya get.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Holidays.....and making different types of popcorn for family movie nights.
My cooking triumphs
Hmmmm....When I cooked my first full Holiday Thanksgiving turkey at the age of 15. It wasn't the best turkey I've ever made, but considering my age and lack of experience, that's my proudest cooking moment.
My cooking tragedies
Mistakenly adding white corn flour to my favorite pound cake. I was young when I made this and found to my dismay when I removed cake pan from cake the whole thing crumbled over like a big blob.

Best Marinated Grilled Chicken
I'm sorry to say that this recipe has very o.k. on flavor and not outstanding. I followed the recipe to the T. Found that considering the amount and price of the sesame oil, it wasn't worth the taste or effort. Will not make again.

Boneless Buffalo Wings
Very nice indeed!!! I added more of the garlic powder, paprika and I also added onion powder as well. This is really a truly yummy dish. My son, who loves buffalo EVERYTHING has been requesting that I make him a buffalo mac-n-cheese with chicken in it. It's exactly what I did and I used this chicken to add it to the mac-n-cheese. To the cheese sauce for the mac and cheese I also added some buffalo sauce. A definate keeper:)

Caramel Popcorn
This popcorn is To-Die-For and name should be changed to that. My kids, husband and I LOVED IT! What a treat. We found a new favorite for family movie nights. Yaeh!!
