About this Cook
Happy wife, chemical plant slave, french fry addict, zookeeper extraordinaire, huge Cowboy Mouth fan!
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake! Anything sweet is fair game!
My cooking triumphs
A couple years back, we bought our first house. We hosted Christmas Day for our relatives, and I cooked most of dinner on my own. It was a success, and now I know I can pull off a holiday!
My cooking tragedies
The first time I tried to make a roux! I was trying to make baked potato soup, and we wound up with a runny, clumpy mess that tasted like burnt flour! I've gotten a lot better at them since then.

Baked Coconut Shrimp
Super easy and tasty!! We used a sweet chile pre-made sauce for dipping and it was amazing! I may even make these for snacks for parties!

Hummus III
I failed to read other reviews before I started on this one, so I have nobody to blame but myself for my so-so outcome! Next time I make this (and there will be a next time), I will definitely add less tahini and probably a little extra garlic. I added some roasted red peppers to mine (because I love the flavor) and I think that helped with the tahini overload!

Bread Machine Calzone
I can really only speak for the dough and cook time, because that's all I use this recipe for. When I make calzones, I cut the dough into four equal sections and fill them with cheese, veggies, and meat (but never sauce, that gets served on the side), and then cook as directed. So easy and customizable for everyone in the house!
