About this Cook
I finally moved out of my parents' house so I need to learn how to cook. (Que scary music)
My favorite things to cook
Anything I can make in a crock-pot!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I will always, always, always think that my mom is the best cook. Because she is. Period. :)
My cooking triumphs
I haven't burned the house down yet :) Actually, I'm very good at baking. It's COOKING that I have a hard time with.
My cooking tragedies
Honestly, one time I started the microwave on fire making popcorn. To this day I still don't know why/how. I used the "popcorn" button on the microwave!

Slow Cooker Beef Stroganoff I
This recipe was just OK. I followed it as written (except I added extra mushrooms for an hour at the end). I was really disappointed that the meat was severely overcooked and burnt to the bottom of the slow cooker. The flavor was pretty good, albeit a bit salty. My BF loved it and wants me to make it again, so I will. But I will not cook it for that long maybe add less Worcestershire sauce to see if that helps with the saltiness.
