About this Cook
I am 49 yrs old and have owned a small trucking company since 2000. I was born in Dodge City,Ks and raised in Norwich,Ks from age 2 yrs. I was the 6th born in the midst of 6 sisters and 2 brothers. Our Father was a Trade Carpenter and Mother a housewife. I have no children of my own, but I enjoy being around my sisters kids.
My favorite things to cook
Breads, Mexican, and Italian dishes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every year for Chrismas I make a Strawberry Surprise cake which I have done since I was a teenager. My Mom always begs for one.
My cooking triumphs
When I got my first Microwave oven back in the late 80's, I decided to try to cook a whole turkey in it. We were all surprised at how perfect it turned out. Dressing and all.
My cooking tragedies
One evening several months ago, we were expecting company for supper. I was fixing fried potatoes as the side dish. When I turned the salt shaker upside down to salt them, the lid came off and dumped the whole thing on them. Needless to say, the stray cats ate well that night.

Sahara Sand Bread
I have made this a couple of times and it turned out great each time. Very little adjustments were needed.

Vietnamese Spring Rolls
At last!!! I have been looking everywhere for this recipe! Just like the ones I get at Vietnamese restaurants, and I really love them. I like to dip them in red chile sauce, fish sauce, with a touch of hoisin all combined. Great stuff!

Tunnel of Fudge Cake IV
I made this for my sweetie's B-Day and even though I over cooked it, he loved it! He said it made the perfect brownie cake. I plan to make it again, but bake it about 5 minutes less next time.
