About this Cook
I have lived on both the east and west coasts. I like cats a lot more than dogs. I can crochet a really cool pattern for a pot holder.
My favorite things to cook
...and eat: gingerbread men, strawberry rhubarb crisp, caramel, fajitas, flourless chocolate cake, peach french toast.
My favorite family cooking traditions
During the holidays I like to make cornbread stuffing and cranberry salad, gingerbread cookies, Swiss fondue, and a gingerbread house. For someone's birthday they get to choose the dinner meal and dessert.
My cooking tragedies
One time I accidentally added 5x the amount of honey needed for the recipe of granola I was making. I had meant to just double the recipe. We had quite a laugh and lots of granola. I can not seem to successfully make a chocolate cake. Every time I have tried it falls. Then again, I only make cakes 2 or 3 times a year. So it is probably just a matter of practicing.

Luscious Spinach Artichoke Dip
This was okay. I followed the recipe and the mayo flavor was too strong. We also didn't really like the flavor of Romano cheese. Next time I'll add less mayo and Parmesan cheese instead of Romano or find a different recipe.

Good for You Greek Salad
This salad was really good and everyone liked it. We only had one cucumber and a lot of small heirloom tomatoes, so we had to guess what was a good amount. We added half the oil and the juice of one lemon. We also added a cubed avocado and left out the olives because we didn't have any. We didn't have a red onion, only yellow onions, and it was very strong, so I soaked the chopped onion in water for about 10 minutes before adding it to the salad.

Chef John's Sloppy Joes
This turned out great. I followed the recipe but I didn't add things in exactly the same. I left out the cayenne pepper and added several more dashes of Worcestershire sauce. I added finely chopped green bell pepper and orange bell pepper; they added a nice touch of color. Following the suggestion of one reviewer I only added 1 tablespoon of brown sugar instead of 2 tablespoons. I'm glad I did because the sloppy joes were still slightly sweet but not too much.
