About this Cook
I'm single, and I've been forced to love to cook because nobody else is going to feed me. I've found cooking discouraging due to tradtional meals most people eat/make; which is why I didn't like it. They're all fattening. Then I discovered there are no real rules to cooking and ventured out on my own to cook what I like how I like it.
My favorite things to cook
Just because people like my cooking doesn't make me an expert. My audience isn't that big. I love to cook anything though but I'm more like a mad scientist in the lab than a chef in the kitchen. I make recipes up all the time; I've had occasional disasters. There are the few times where, I'm scratching my head and wish I wrote more down instead of fooled around with it because it came out so well.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanksgiving - I think is the all time favorite. It's where my family get's together at my house and I cook a meal where people fight over the left overs if there are any.
My cooking triumphs
My cooking triumph is my experiment with a Sweet potato pie recipe and New York Cheese cake. Everyone that tried it was begging for the recipe. I didn't have it becuase it was from 2 different places and one was someone's back home recipe. I've tried replicating a recipe online. It makes the pumpkin pie and cheesecake combo taste like saw dust. It's really amazing. I was most pleased with that concoction.
My cooking tragedies
Never mix potatoes and tomato sauce. I don't know what I thinking one day but it came out really weird. I think I was a student at the time and suffering for lack of ingredients. The other tragedy is, I had to stop using oil, because my face doesn't like it. Butter is better even margarine. It wasn't so much a cooking tragedy as a facial one.

Brown Sugar Cut-Out Cookies and Icing
It's simple, it's GREAT and it's yummy. I myself like them as tea biscuits. They're excellent, not strong or overbearing. Thank You for Sharing this one.

Green Banana Fries
This is an excellent french fries substitute. I am not a banana person I don't like the flavor at all. These taste like french fries if you get the small green bananas. I know some people can't have potatoes ie arthritis or just dieting. It's worth it. They may seem a little more dense but add a dash of salt and they'll be gone really fast.

Escargot and Pollock over Spinach Noodles
I actually served this to my sister who's n ever had escargot and she liked it very much. I know some people have an aversion to snails just on hearing it. It's a very good dish.
