About this Cook
I have been attempting to learn to cook for quite some time but in the past few years I've gotten a lot better thanks in part to a certain celeb's half hour cook books :) I'm starting out slow and working my way up to the professional cookbook I also received a few years ago. Maybe one of these days I'll be able to make a recipe of my own completely from scratch but for now I just use others' recipes.
My favorite things to cook
I love making comfort food (stews, spaghetti, biscuits and gravy), the kind of food that fills you up and makes you feel warm and cozy inside. I am also really liking trying new things. I recently made miga's for the first time and I gotta say they weren't that bad!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I don't really have any family traditions but I'm working on starting some of my own.
My cooking triumphs
Triumphs is a pretty strong word, I think when whatever I make gets eaten without any leftovers it's a triumph!
My cooking tragedies
Too many to count from the early days of attempting to cook. Things were burned, things were undercooked, I was all over the spectrum.

Easy OREO Truffles
I didn't change a single thing in this recipe and it was phenomenal!! I made these for a family reunion this weekend and was crowned the "chef" of the family! Like I had read in some reviews, it is a bit time consuming, but only to make them look "pretty"; if I didn't have to concentrate on the presentation side of it, it would have gone a lot faster. Either way they were delicious and I will definitely keep these as my go to recipe to impress my guests!

Pork Tenderloin Marinade
Perfect go to marinade that can be used for grilling or baking. Most items already on hand so a perfect recipe to use for last minute pork meals.

Apple Raisin French Toast Strata
I followed some other reviewer's leads and used apple pie filling and it worked really well. I was a little worried about how it would taste since it looked kind of mushy but it really did taste like french toast! I was happily surprised. I think next time I may use smaller chunks of cream cheese or use others' suggestions of spreading it on the bread because while I liked the chunks and the taste of the cream cheese, after awhile it started to overpower the rest of the tastes in the dish. It's a keeper none the less. :)
