About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
I just like to cook....period. It's the clean up that is a pain. ;)
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanksgiving Turkey & Christmas Prime Rib.
My cooking triumphs
Thanksgiving Turkey & Christmas Prime Rib (and all the side dishes/desserts). I can cook almost anything, except fried things and homemade pie crust.
My cooking tragedies
Fried chicken. I still have the scar to prove it. It wasn't bad, it was bland and I just couldn't get the oil like I needed it. Someday I'll try again....without injury.

Death by Chocolate Mousse
TEN STARS ********** OK, seriously the most amazing home made choc mousse EVER. I made it for Thanksgiving and instead of a regular pie I made mini pies in mason jars. For the crust I just put some Oreo cookie crumbs at the bottom of the jar and filled the jar with the mousse. I let them sit overnight and they were PERFECT the next day (they were also amazing 3 days later). I did add a little Starbucks Via powder (Christmas Blend) to the chocolate as it was melting....that is the only change I made. D E L I S H and so easy. OH, and I used the double boiler method with simmering water in a pot and a glass bowl on top (don't let the water touch the bowl, the bowl must sit an inch or so above the water).

Deep-Fried Turkey Marinade
I feel horrible that I didn't rate this last year when I tried it. DO NOT BE FOOLED BY THE DARK/BLACK COLOR, IT IS NOT BURNED - IT IS DELICIOUS. I made 2 turkeys last year, just in case this one was too spicy…..NOPE. Everyone chose this one over the more traditional turkey. It was absolutely delicious. If you have a fryer, then this should be your 'go to' recipe every year. I promise you, it is unlike any other turkey your friends or family have had, and it will be there favorite. It is a year later and my family still talks about the black fried turkey from 2012. They made me promise I will never make another type of turkey again.
