About this Cook
I am a college student, who uses cooking as an escape from studying. I look for meals that are quick, easy and tasty, and often tend to add my own something to them.
My favorite things to cook
My boyfriend loves my Chicken Enchiladas and Lemon-Honey Chicken Breasts. I also love baking chocolate chip cookies and oatmeal raisin cookies.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Guatamalan Tamales for Dinner on Christmas Eve (which is when we celebrate Christmas)
My cooking triumphs
Chocolate Chip Cookies and Oatmeal Raisin Cookies (they are one of my friend's favorite).
My cooking tragedies
Brown Sugar-Glazed Carrots...too sweet...blegh. Then one time I wasn't paying attention and burned the Cashew Raisin Rice Pilaf...though that still tasted good...just a little smokey. :-)

Habanero Hellfire Chili
This is a great chili. My boyfriend and I cooked it in a slow cooker instead which reduced the intensity of the habanero (to our dismay). We cooked up the bacon, and then cooked the ground meat in some of the bacon grease. Then we threw in all the ingredients (including the juices) and then placed them all but adding the bacon in the last half hour of cooking. We did halve the anaheim and ommitted the bell pepper. For our personal taste, and from some of the pictures it seemed like too much green pepper for us. We also kept the seeds to keep some of the kick but it still wasn't enough for us. We prefer it more spicy and the slow cooker seems to reduce the spicyness so we may add more habanero to ours in order to maintain that spice. Overall, the recipe is delicious and I will gladly make this over and over again.
