About this Cook
I am 32 years old and I've been cooking since I was out on my own almost 15 years ago. I cooked with my mom when I was a kid and I still enjoy cooking. I was raised to eat smart balanced meals and I enjoy experimenting with different dishes to create somethig special.
My favorite things to cook
I love to stir fry and Find ways to put more whole grains I our diet. I enjoy baking bread and sweets! Sometimes I will bake cookies and cakes just to have something to do.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Almost everything my mom made when I was a kid was from scratch. Both my grandma and my mom are excellent cooks and I love to get recipie ideas from both of them!!
My cooking triumphs
Copy cat Hooters chicken wings! I try to cook something new every week to add some variety to our diet. I've always stuggled with friend chicken, but I made these chicken wings that taste exactly like the ones you get at Hooters!
My cooking tragedies
I've messed a lot of things up, but that is how you learn!

Yummy Cheese Ball
This cheeseball is always a hit. If you find it too greasy from the bacon I suggest using turkey bacon. If you bake the bacon in the over rather than frying it in a pan and cut it with kitchen shears it turns out great. I've made this with both regular bacon and with turkey bacon and everyone agrees turkey bacon is the way to go.
