About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
Potato soup and other soups as I find them. I like to prepare whole birds in a variety of ways, and I enjoy baking cakes and breads when I have enough people around to eat them.
My cooking triumphs
Developing a potato soup that contains pork, dairy, and chicken. Vegetarian cooking is okay, but give me the meat!
My cooking tragedies
One time, I burned Rice Krispy Treats.

Tasty Lentil Tacos
This is so much better than it has any right to be, and has quickly become one of my favorite recipes! It's very friendly to dietary restrictions and easily becomes vegan. Be sure to stir in the salsa with the lentils at the end... it has a significant impact on the overall flavor and texture.

White Peach Sangria
I followed the recipe exactly, and it was a big delicious hit at my party. I let everything soak for 24 hours.

Classic Spanish Sangria
This was my first sangria making experience, and I'm glad I followed this recipe. I used spiced rum and Cab Sav. I messed up and added the wine and OJ with the booze and fruit (which turned out fine), and I let everything soak for 24 hours. This was less popular at my party than the White Peach Sangria also found on this site.
