About this Cook
My husband and I have been together for 14 years. We have two boys. Our oldest, (my step-son) is 19 and our youngest is 9. I've been cooking since I was a teen. I usually don't follow recipes after I have tried it the first time. I like gourmet recipes but ususally don't have the ingrediants to make them
My favorite things to cook
I cook alot of stirfries because they are fast (once you get the veggies cut up, anyway). I love salads but have never found a store dressing that I like so I make alot of salad dressings as well. Snacks for my boys are also big on my list. I'm always looking for snacks for a never-full teenager and a very picky elementary school kid.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Since somebody is ususally missing during christmas due to work or whatever, instead we have a family get- together for new years. Same as on christmas day, just a week late.
My cooking tragedies
No major things. I find it hard to time things to be ready at the same time, so potatoes are lumpy or carrots still hard, or broccoli get mushy. My husband can't eat spicy, my teen loves spicy, my youngest will only eat peanut butter on bread or anything salted, (ie. fries, popcorn, chips) and none of us like many veggies, makes meal-planning kinda hard.

Cowboy Oatmeal Cookies
So far the best oatmeal cookies, but they didn't have alot of oatmeal in them. I used raisins instead of chips, everything else was as is.

Zesty Chicken and Potatoes
I didn't find this especially great. Kinda plain. I even used zesty italian dressing because that's what I have... and I marinated the chicken but still only ok. Potatoes were good though.

Insane Oven Beef Ribs
This was a good recipe but nothing really fabulous. I won't bother making again. They were just too basic.
