About this Cook
I'm a self-taught (well, learned from my dad and Food Network) cook and I love playing around with new/old recipes. Seeing that look of adoration on someone's face when they try something I've made is worth every minute sweating over the stove! :)
My favorite things to cook
I love baking, creating new recipes from old favorites is a great way to discover tasty cookies and cakes! :)
My favorite family cooking traditions
Not burning down the kitchen! My mom never really could cook growing up, so it was pretty much up to myself and my dad. The man was amazing - he could throw anything together and make it taste wonderful.
My cooking triumphs
My peanut butter & chocolate pie. Anyone who eats it always wants more - it has become quite the requested recipe around the holidays. I have finally managed to make breads how I like them - dinner rolls, sandwich bread, etc.
My cooking tragedies
Let's just say it involved parmesan, milk, garlic, and a pan that apparently felt like shedding it's non-stick the alfredo sauce .. without me knowing .. until someone commented about the sauce tasting very "metallic". Here I thought it was just the pepper. :)

Belle's Hamburger Buns
These were okay but very heavy. I'm a pretty experience bread baker and just felt the crumb and texture to be a little dense for me. Thank you, though!

Taco Seasoning I
This was good but it still feels like something is missing! I don't know if my taste buds are so trained to the fake, processed stuff in the packages but I just felt this was lacking. What was there is definitely tasty but missing that signature "taco" seasoning flavor.

Best Spanish Rice
This was definitely good - I never realized before exactly what gave Spanish rice the flavoring and color! Thank you for the recipe.
