About this Cook
My cooking tragedies
BBQ chicken in a slow cooker. It was terrible. How ever it managed to by moist and dry and the same time is beyond me.

Basil Cream Sauce
This was a great sauce, I made a few modifications- Half & half instead of cream which I used about 8oz + 2T of butter. Also, I threw everything in the food processor at once except for the olive oil, it didn't seem necessary to do it in 2 steps. Added more garlic because I always add more garlic :) Tossed it with fusilli, some of the pasta water and two large, diced, tomatoes. My boyfriend and I loved it.

7UP Winter Mint Sherbet Punch
Easy and delicious punch recipe! Made it for a baby shower I was hosting (with white rum on the side) and it was hit. I made ice balls with fresh mint and garnished the punch with it as well. Will definitely make it again, thanks!

Carrot Cake III
This carrot cake was wonderful. I made some changes based on personal preference and the other review- no pecans, 1/2 cup applesauce & 3/4 cup oil instead of all oil, 1 cup white & 1 cup dark brown sugar, added 1/4 t each - nutmeg, allspice & cloves. I baked it in a 8in springform pan for about 60 minutes. It was quite the hit. I have never made a cake from scratch, this will definitely be my go-to carrot cake though I think I will look for a different frosting recipe but there was nothing wrong with this one. For the reviewers complaining about the changes people make- Cooking is an art, not an carbon copy of someone else's creation. I, personally, enjoy reading reviews by others for inspiration. Even without the changes I made to this recipe it would have been great.
