About this Cook
I believe that my generation was raised on meals from a box - hamburger helper, dinty moore, mac and cheese. I'm determined to learn as much about cooking as possible, from as many people as possible.
My favorite things to cook
My favorite is ethnic cuisine. From South American dishes to authentic Indian Curries, I try to replicate it as close as possible to the original. That doesn't mean I don't love good ol' comfort food! I love Kentucky favorites as well.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mother always taught me that holidays don't necessarily mean traditional food. She was known to serve lobster tail for Christmas dinner. The freedom to break out of traditional roles means that I'm not stuck making something I won't enjoy.
My cooking triumphs
Homemade focaccia was amazingly easy and good. I wasn't going to make it but I decided to give it a go and I couldn't believe that I pulled it off without a problem.
My cooking tragedies
I tend to edit recipes before I make them! On more than one occasion I have decided to substitute ingredients without making the original with disastrous results.

Slow Cooker Stuffing
Ugh. When I picked a slow cooker recipe, I hoped it wouldn't need constant attention. You need to be around to add more liquid since as the bread crumbs warm, they suck up the liquid and leave you VERY quickly with a scorched mess. Next time, I'll stick with traditional stuffing since it would be less of a hassle.
