About this Cook
I am a middle school teacher. I have 2 Golden Retrievers and live in a house in Huntington Beach. My parents live next door to me on one side and my aunt and uncle live on the other side, so I am trying to cook more for the family.
My favorite things to cook
I love holiday cookting. Anything for a Christmas or Thanksgiving Day dinner is the best.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We make these things called egg boats. They are the best things ever and I am going to try and submit them.
My cooking triumphs
For the past two Christmas dinners I made homemade cranberry sauce, cream corn, wassail and hot chocolate. Now they are staples.
My cooking tragedies
I have not done enough cooking yet to have had a tragedy. Hopefully that stays the same.

Chicken Fried Steak I
Very good recipe. Here is a really good tip: make sure and use an electric skillet because you can set the temperature and it cooks everything evenly and it allows for you to do more than one steak. Also, I used cube steaks which were really great but I would cut the steaks into about 4" x 4" pieces. I had really large ones so they weren't as crispy in the center.

Piggy Pudding Dessert Cake
This dessert is SOOOOO easy and everyone LOVES it. Simple and easy is the key to this one. If you have a potluck or something to go to, this is perfect. It is always a hit and you really can't mess it up. JUST MAKE SURE THAT YOU MAKE THE PUDDING ACCORDING TO PACKAGE DIRECTIONS. DON'T TRY TO FOLLOW THE RECIPE FOR THAT PART. Otherwise, I make it exactly as it is. There is no need to change a thing. You can make it with different puddings, but I think chocolate is the best!

Butternut Squash Soup
OUTSTANDING! Tip - Definitely use only 1 package of cream cheese as others suggested. I made it exactly according to the recipe, except for that one adjustment, and family and friends could not get enough of it! I could eat this stuff daily.
