About this Cook
I'm a single Mom who's baby is graduating high school. I work as a scanning coordinator at a local grocery store.
My favorite things to cook
The weirder the better. I'm currently experimenting with tempeh.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family were not famous cooks. My grandmother was good with southern comfort food but there are no other spices than onion, salt and pepper in her recipes. Not a lot of sugar either, sugar was for rich southern families, which mine was not.
My cooking triumphs
I'm learning fast the health benefits of cultured (aka molded, spoiled or in some other was uniquely preserved) foods.
My cooking tragedies
I haven't cooked but a couple things the dogs wouldn't eat. I can't think of anything that wasn't burned beyond consumption either.

Very Popular Bubble Tea
You cannot use American pearl tapioca for this recipe as it will fall apart and be nothing but a bunch of starch. You must use Pearl Tapioca that is made just for Bubble Tea. I recommend cooking the tapioca for 20 minutes and removing it from the heat source. Put a lid on the pot and allow to set for another 20 to 30 minutes. Rinse with warm water, it helps get the excess starch off much easier than cold water. I use Coconut Chai tea, Almond Milk and Stevia.
