About this Cook
I am a stay at home mom of 2 toddlers in Williamsburg, Virginia. My family just bought our first home and I am enjoying getting to learn my way around my very own kitchen. I have never been that enthused about cooking until I moved into our first house with my very own kitchen! Now, I spend my spare time learning new recipes and different cooking techniques.
My favorite things to cook
I love cooking different types of ethnic food: asian, italian, morrocan, anything that is new and interesting! I have also found a love of baking cakes. Heaven and Hell Cake is my favorite so far!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Growing up, my family was big on casseroles. If you could put it in a casserole, we did! Now, although I love casseroles, I am enjoying learing to cook in different styles!
My cooking triumphs
I learn a little more each day and can't say that I've mastered any specific thing, although I am know as the Cake Lady between my friends and family! I am working on creating my own cake for them now!
My cooking tragedies
I haven't had anything extremely detrimental happen yet. My biggest task that I am attempting to master is time management. I am learning how to time meals properly so that everything comes out fresh & hot!

Blueberry Buckle
This was easy to make and tasted great!! I was a little nervous with how thick the batter was but it cooked up just right!!! I have to say to everyone thinking of making this - please make it as stated and review it as so. It is not fair to change up the ingredients/amounts and then rate the recipe according to your changes. Rate it for what it is and THEN give your suggested changes. Thanks!

Hungry Man's Baked Chicken
I didn't care for this. Maybe I did something wrong? The only change I made was that I used chicken tenderloins instead of the chicken the recipe calls for. It turned out very dry and my family didn't care for it too much. Maybe it works better with the chicken with bone in it. Might try it that way again but not with tenderloins.

Mexican Rice II
This was GREAT! I would add a little kick to it next time because I like mine SPICY but this was awesome!
