About this Cook
I've been visiting allrecipes for awhile now but didn't have the time to do more than grab a recipe and go but recent broken ankle has given lots of extra time. I'm so glad I ran into the lady that told me about this site. It's been such a great help in the kitchen!
My favorite things to cook
Apple pie has got to be my absolute favorite thing to bake. My grandma fixed THE best apple pie ever. I have her recipe but I swear it was the apples from her yard that must have made it so good because I still don't have mine exactly like hers.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Making my grandma's perfect biscuits for a family brunch.
My cooking triumphs
Finally over coming my fear of baking bread. Using an AR member's recipe, I made my first loaf of bread. Then I ventured on. My kids favorite is the pretzel dog recipe from here. It was great to see the video and them make them!
My cooking tragedies
Those are so many. But the one that sticks out is the boiled to death corned beef and cabbage dinner I tried to make several years ago for a St. Paddy's day dinner for friends. Talk about cooked to beyond recognition. We ordered pizza instead of suffering thru slimy cabbage and the brown thing left in the pot.

Lucky's Quickie Chickie
I'd really like to give this 4 1/2 stars. We didn't love this but it was quick and had flavor but for some reason not enough sauce.

Sangria a la Las Vegas Round Up 2011
We used good ingredients but the cabernet gave the drink a really harsh note no one liked.
