About this Cook
I love to cook for my family and friends. I'm always trying something new, and looking for good stuff to feed my picky husband.
My favorite things to cook
Cookies, cakes, casseroles, comfort food of any kind!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Making and decorating sugar cookies at Christmas Ham on Easter, chili or stew and biscuits when the weather turns cold (not too often in Florida!)
My cooking triumphs
Making my first moist, tasty chocolate three layer cake for my husband.
My cooking tragedies
a few casseroles that sounded good but probably weren't fit for the dogs.

Cindy's Awesome Clam Chowder
My son's "Culinary Careers" class was assigned to create a restaurant complete with floor plan, decor, theme, menu, etc. They had to present their restaurant to the class (and some faculty!) including one sample dish from the menu. This was the sample dish we provided. I figured that since it was seafood, I might have plenty of leftovers at the end of the day...WRONG! The slow cooker it put it in to keep warm was practically licked clean!! I got several requests for the recipe, including from the kids in my son's group that created the restaurant and the culinary careers teacher. It was super awesome!!

Truck-Stop Buttermilk Pancakes
I was very disappointed in these pancakes. After reading many of the reviews, I was really excited to try them, looking forward to fluffy, warm pancakes. Instead I got thin, bland, tasteless pancakes. I don't know how anyone could think these were better than IHOP. I followed the recipe exactly. I didn't scale the recipe down and no one was interested in eating any more that what I cooked. I'll keep looking for a better recipe and use boxed mix in the meantime.

Chicken and Corn Chili
I made this as a healthy, low-fat hot lunch that I could enjoy at work. As it was cooking today, I loved the aroma and--I admit it--I had to life the slow-cooker lid a few times to taste it. I can't wait to have some at lunch! I did add a can of tomatoes with green peppers and onions, as well as about 1.5 cups of vegetable broth to thin out the texture a bit, to meet my preferences.
