About this Cook
I'm short, sweet and cute I'm also an Aries in the worst way
My favorite things to cook
I love home cooked american meals. Haven't really dabbled in much other than Italian as far as foreign cuisines go. I've been wondering about that. Maybe it'll change soon. Although, I do make some mean Build Your Own Taco's.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Well a few friends and my boyfriend and I have created at "Not Family" tradition. Every year around the holidays a bunch of us get together and have a "Not Family" dinner. We have one for Thanksgiving and Christmas. We started calling it that because we usually do the real family thing on the holiday but a week before or after we have our "Not Family" celebration. That title came from only having friends there but they were close enough to be family except they weren't therefore: "Not Family" was born.
My cooking tragedies
Trying to make an Aioli and making mayonnaise. Failed miserably at that.

Bok Choy Beef Soup
I would make this again but I would first sear the stew meat to get a nice brown color then do the onions ect. We used 2 bullion cubes in warm water in stead of broth and we found that we didn't need to add any salt. We also didn't have jalapeno peppers so we used some red pepper flakes and that gave it a nice heat. I added some celery we had and that was real good. We stewed the bok choy a little longer to get it nice and tender.

Ham and White Bean Soup
This one is a goodie!!! I made a batch of fresh pinto beans, in place of the canned and used the pinto bean broth instead of the chicken broth. I substituted white rice in place of the potatoes and I added a few stalks of carrots. Amazing!!!

Magic Peanut Butter Middles
These were really good. A lot of work but they were delicious. They didn't stay around in my house long and everyone said they were really good.
