About this Cook
I am a spontaneous person--if you were to ask me to go on a road trip this second, i'd probably already have my bags packed. I hate living the same day twice. Life is an adventure and should never be taken too seriously. I have no idea what I want to do in life, I'm finding out as I go. Plans are boring, and almost always, get ruined. Living life on the edge is exhilirating--you never know what you will run into. Where I am right now is ok. Sure, things could be different, but I try and not waste my time thinking about negative things. Why waste the energy doing so, when I could be using it to change and do those things I want. Most people think they know me, but chances are they really don't. A couple people can really say they know me, and I'll be able to varify it. Others, are probably fooled.
My favorite things to cook
I love cooking new and different recipes for foods that I have never tried before. Sometimes it is difficult to find a recipe because there are some basic ingredients (onions and peppers) that I don't like or care for. Lucky for me, my fiance loves everything--so I make dishes that have these ingredients in them anyways. I'd love to learn how to cook some authentic ethnic foods since this is an area I'd love to explore in cuisine.
My cooking triumphs
I wanted to cook a whole chicken up for my boyfriend (fiance now) from a recipe I saw in a magaine. It came out amazing, and I was so impressed with myself because that was the first "meal" that I ever made on my own that didn't come in a box or can. It was delicious, and I wish I still had the recipe.
My cooking tragedies
Almost every recipe I use has a tragedy of some sorts. I still to this day do not remember to read the recipe through first, before starting it. This usually creates issues with ingredients (lack or or too much) as well as time restraints. Once I was going to make a salad (Taffy Apple--one I found here) for dinner and sadly realized that it took 3 days to make. Bummer.

Broccoli with Garlic Butter and Cashews
Delicious! I only wish the sauce was a little thicker. Mine was quite runny--I don't know if that is the way it is supposed to be or not.

Chicken Pot Pie IX
This recipe was pretty good for my first time making chicken pot pie. My husband loved it, but I felt that it was missing something even though I put all the ingredients in. I'd probably make this again, but might try and incorporate cheese into it somehow.

Lazy Bruschetta
I don't know if I didn't get the garlic salt mixed enough or what, but it was quite salty. I don't think I would add all the garlic salt next time. And I too thought some fresh basil on top of it all would taste nice too. I may dice up the tomatoes too--because it's hard to keep the tomato on when I bite into it. All in all it's a nice idea with some minor changes needed. I will definantly try again.
