About this Cook
At 50 something, I've been cooking for a while now. Until recently, I had never lived 3 years in the same house - so I am very used to change, and I like to try new things. I especially love gastronomic adventures! Living in Thailand as a child, in Europe as an adult, and in many different states over the course of my life, has led me to appreciate a wide variety of foods, as well as a desire to learn how to create them at home. Oh - and Allrecipes is my favorite recipe site by far!
My cooking triumphs
As I'm not the most organized person, I've gotten pretty adept at throwing things together with what I have on hand, and at substituting ingredients when necessary.
My cooking tragedies
Like I'm supposed to be able to list my cooking tragedies in less than 1000 words! One of my faves is using salt instead of sugar in a dessert.

Baked Stuffed Winter Squash
This was awesome! I used less sausage, no celery (didn't have any,) added chopped apples, a sprinkling of crushed red pepper, and grated a little parmesan on top for last 5 minutes of baking. I also used the microwave to precook the acorn squash. Gotta say the photo almost scared me away from this recipe!
