About this Cook
I grew up on sandwiches and cereal while my mother (a single parent) worked multiple jobs to keep my brother and I. She is a great cook but didn't have an opportunity to teach me. I hope to at least become proficient enough to have a successful meal on rare occasions when I do find/make time to cook for my family between work, gym, sports (mine), errands and extended family visits. It is all about timing...and that is my greatest struggle.
My favorite things to cook
One dish meals help me avoid timing failures.

Beth's Spicy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies
Okay, at 35 yrs old I am JUST learning to cook beyond the microwave, so mistakes are likely. FIRST LESSON: I forgot the flour (how does THAT happen!?!) and found a sticky oozing mess when I checked the first batch. SECOND LESSON: the recipe does not specify (for us beginners) to use salted or unsalted butter. I used salted and the additional salt. My suggestion to others like me who do not know better is to use one or the other, not both. THIRD LESSON: This recipe is a little sweet for me (it tastes "store bought" sweet) so I may try to cut back the sugar next time. FOURTH LESSON: Cutting back the baking time to about 10 minutes saved me from hard cookies, but now I find them chewy. ADDITIONS: 1/4 tsp Cardamom for depth to the spicy flavor. YUMMY even if a tad salty and chewy!
