About this Cook
I have been cooking since I was small enough to need a chair to reach things! My mom taught me alot about cooking, encouraging me to try new recipes, or to just wing it and make something up.
My favorite things to cook
Anything! I like to try new things all the time. My husband is a great person to cook for as well...he's not picky eater and will try anything as well.
My cooking tragedies
This was when I was much younger...my sister and I decided to make home made bread, something we had both done before, however, when I was kneading the dough, I decided to fling it into the air like pizza dough. Well, as you can imagine, I killed the yeast and my bread came out heavy as a brick and only about an inch thick!

Mexican Rice II
This rice was the closest I've found to what you get in most restaurants. We loved it as is - although as another reviewer suggested, I added the onion in with the rice to get them cooked down - yum!

Chicken Chimichangas with Sour Cream Sauce
We made this as is and it was wonderful! I didn't feel like they were a lot of work at all. I made the chicken earlier in the day, and after I shredded it and put it back in the pan with the broth and seasonings, I covered it and put it in the refrigerator. Then, when I was ready to make dinner, I just reheated it and the rest all went together very quickly! Will definitely make again!

Hearty Lentil Soup
This really had great flavor! I made exactly as the recipe states, except I did not blend it either. Will definitely make again!
