About this Cook
I have recently changed careers from the retail world to healthcare. I am working part time now instead of 50+ hours a week. I am married and have two children. I am able to now do what I love most...cook for my family. When I was full time we ate ALOT of take out. I truly relax when I am in the kitchen.
My favorite things to cook
Pretty much anything!!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Helping Mom with the holidays meals. My sister and I are in out 30's and we still help her out.
My cooking triumphs
I am awful at baking. I made a pie for a holiday and it turned out perfect in one try. I had back up ingredients just in case I had to make another one.
My cooking tragedies
A fish stew that was God awful. My son was two and cried because is was so bad!!! Any kind of baking. I cook wonderfully, I just can't figure out how to make a darn cake right.

Bacon Wrapped Water Chestnuts III
I have made these for several parties now and they get gobble up in minutes. Even the kids love them. I did have to increase the cooking time a bet to get the bacon crispy.
