About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
I love to grill, and bake....I have a big sweet tooth.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Helping my mother make Thanksgiving dinner. Her bread stuffing was the best but she didn't use a recipe. Making banana and apple bread with mom.
My cooking triumphs
Many of my triumphs are from this site. Cookies and pastries. My wife likes my meat loaf but that's another of my mom's non recipe recipe. Deep fried turkey was a big hit with all the family
My cooking tragedies
Never had anything turn out so bad it was a tragedy. I can't make gravey to save my life and I have made a few cakes that looked like a tragedy but tasted great ( Boston cream pie)

Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars IV
Very Very good and very easy. I did put some peanut butter in with the chocolate. I will make these again.

Lumpia (Shanghai version)
This was the closest to my mother's and aunt's lumpia I have tasted. I would cut back on the salt quite a bit and I tried the spring roll wrappers (rice flour/tapioca wraps) and they did not turn out. I need to find actual lumpia wrappers.

Amazing Crab Shells
Like others I used this as a dip. I used cream cheese and I think I will cut back on the salt next time but otherwise it was a good recipe
