About this Cook
I started cooking dinners when I was twelve (my first dish was stuffed cabbage rolls). When I found out how much people liked it, I started to enjoy cooking for myself. Fifteen years later I still enjoy cooking even though I have to now cook for my two picky children.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Seven years ago my grandmother had a stroke on Thanksgiving and my mother had to leave to go to the hospital to be with her. I ended up taking over the cooking. It didn't turn out so well because turkeys are darn hard! It was dry (and I think a little underdone). The next year I begged to be given a second chance and it started a new tradition. I have been planning and cooking Thanksgiving dinner by myself since. Now Thanksgiving has a little more adventurous, but more importantly I get to use the family as guinea pigs every year. (And they love it!)
My cooking tragedies
Seven years ago I tried to make a chicken dish that cooked in apple juice. All I had was baby apple juice, so I used it. It overflowed while cooking, and the smell was horriable!! Needless to say we had the side dishes for dinner.

Georgia Barbeque Sauce
Really great recipe. For those who thought it was too hot, then read the recipe first. 1 tablespoon of red pepper would equal hot stuff!! NEways, I used it on ribs, burgers and hot dogs and had a little left so I dipped some chips in it. Could not get enough of this!!

Cinnamon Sugar Biscotti
I loved these. I added the cinnamon chips also. They got a little burned on the bottom, but were still great! Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

Delicious Black Bean Burritos
I can not believe how high this is rated! They were bland and dry. It turned out to be a three star dip. I even feel silly giving it that high of a rating.
