About this Cook
I'm 18, ride a motorcycle, and cook strangly well with no practice.
My favorite things to cook
I love making desserts, breads(I find it relaxing), red meats, and.... well, almost everything.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We don't really have any traditions.
My cooking triumphs
My deviled egg recipe. I make them at every family party, and every one always demands the recipe, which I'm keeping secret for the time being.
My cooking tragedies
So many.... I think I brought sugar cookies to life once. It was horrible.

Gravy Baked Pork Chops
I made this one night to use up some porkchops that I'd nearly forgotten about. I didn't have any cream of anything soup, so I had to make a substitute. I also added some sliced onions and minced garlic. I ended up doubling the gravy to serve over mashed potatoes. It turned out AMAZING. My husband licked his plate clean and my toddler asked for seconds. This is now part of our dinner rotation, and I always make sure to have a few cans of cream-of-mushroom-soup on hand.

Round Steak Sauerbraten
Deliciuosly tender, and the sauce was amazing on garlic mashed potatoes. We didn't have onion powder, so we substitued garlic powder and minced onions. It would probably be even better with the onion powder. I didn't use the vinegar, instead I used dry red wine. Beautiful!

Asparagus with Garlic and Onions
I didn't think this one would turn out well. I suspected that the onion would overpower the flavor of the asparagus. But it turned out amazing! The white onion paired so well with the asparagus. I didn't get to brown it as dinner was running late, so I tossed the stalks in the garlic butter. I will be making this again soon!
