About this Cook
I am 30, a special educator, and consider myself an advanced beginner when it comes to cooking. I like to cook for my husband and love it when he requests certain dishes I've made.
My favorite things to cook
I like to cook things that are relatively simple and fast, since I'm pretty busy. I'll also admit that I tend to get overwhelmed by lots of steps and ingredients, but I'm working on getting past that.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom makes a big pot of homemade vegetable soup and an electric skillet full of chili whenever she has a snow day, and I always associate those smells with pure bliss. Also, not that this is a cooking tradition, but every Christmas eve, my family gets Chinese takeout, and I think that's awesome!
My cooking triumphs
Of the recipes I've tried from this site, I've been most pround of: slow cooker pot roast, sausage strata, chicken chili, mexican rice, and oven-fried chicken.
My cooking tragedies
None yet. I'll keep you posted, though.

Pizza Dough I
Very easy and versatile recipe that yields a tender, flatbread-like crust. We added 2 cloves of crushed garlic, some basil, and an Italian Herbs mixture from Durkee. We will be making this again for sure, and we're already talking about what other herbs and spices we can add. Thanks for this recipe, it was perfect!

Snickerdoodles V
These are superb! I wanted them to be disc-shaped, so I flattened them a bit by pushing on the balls of dough before I placed them in the oven, and they turned out just how I wanted them. The flavor was perfect. Ph, I did add a teaspoon of vanilla. That's the only thing I did differently.
