About this Cook
Love to cook and love to eat! When I'm looking for a recipe, I never stick to one. I take certain things from several different recipes, and put them together to make my own. There have been recipes that should have been way simpler, and others that have been fantastic, you cook and you learn.
My favorite things to cook
What I love to eat of course. Some current favs are potato salad, meatloaf, braised chicken drumsticks with white wine and pears, and stir fry. My favorite cuisines are vietnamese, italian, french, american, thai and mexican.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Still trying to get all the secrets out of my mom. She makes a mean bowl of pho and eggrolls to die for among other vietnamese delicacies.
My cooking triumphs
Perfecting betty crocker's chili con carne with some of my own personal touches.
My cooking tragedies
Many a burned steak. The pork chops last night. Lima beans.

Campbell's(R) Slow Cooker Savory Pot Roast
My complaints are in regards to the gravy. I was unsure about using cream of mushroom but went ahead and made the recipe as instructed the only change was I added some celery and a little water (water was unneccessary). It wasn't a beefy thick gravy, it was murky and I had to doctor it up with sugar, salt, and pepper to make it taste decent. There is actually a recipe on the Lipton Soup Mix that I'd try, basically this recipe sans the cream of mushroom. Chuck is always good so no complaints about the roast itself. In regards to the people who had to add liquid, I believe it's probably because you don't have a tight enough fitting lid, because the roast itself created A LOT of juices, no additional liquid required at all...

Grandma's Brisket
FABULOUS recipe. I was worried that not having a marinated piece of meat would produce subpar results but this recipe is easy, flavorful, and requires no marination! I added a couple shots of worcestershire and garlic powder to the sauce. Served with boiled potatoes and green beans and carrots and drizzled the sauce on everything. Yum.

Giant Chocolate Chip Cookie
i sifted the flour to give it a more cakey texture... it was pretty good, not quite like mrs. fields'... i read several reviews complaining of overspill... i avoid this i didn't completely spread the batter to the edge of the pan, i left about half an ich for it to expand... made this for my boyfriend for his birthday, it was a hit!
