About this Cook
I've always enjoyed baking and cooking. In my mid-teen years, my mom required that my sister and I cook a meal a week. I wasn't too happy about that chore then, but I am so glad I learned how to cook! Now that I'm married (July 2005), I enjoy trying new recipes out on my husband. He never knows what he'll be having for dinner, but he likes trying new things. Besides cooking, I enjoy playing indoor soccer, reading, hiking and geocaching.
My favorite things to cook
I love making desserts, especially cookies. I also enjoy trying out new dinner recipes that include chicken or ground beef.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Turkey seems to be the traditional dish for all family holiday gatherings. I enjoy making the mashed potatoes and desserts, although sometime I'd like to try making the turkey.
My cooking triumphs
I consider finding a good recipe a cooking triumph. In this respect, a recipe I found for Spinach Beef Spagetti Pie would be considered my greatest triumph. However, I'd also say that once I cook a Thanksgiving turkey and the trimmings by myself - that will be a truimph!
My cooking tragedies
When I was eight or nine years old, I made pancakes for breakfast for my family. I misread the recipe and put in 1 tablespoon of salt instead of 1 teaspoon. It made for some very salty pancakes; needless to say, they ended up in the garbage!

Cindy's Coleslaw
Very good coleslaw...I used half mayo, half low fat sour cream since I am not a huge fan of mayo. It turned out very well!

Old-Fashioned Pancakes
Great pancakes...I added a teaspoon of vanilla but otherwise followed the recipe.

Skillet Apple Brownie
I wasn't all that impressed with this recipe though I am giving it a four star rating because everyone else seemed to like it. I reduced the cloves by half but they still seemed to overwhelm the taste of the dessert.
