About this Cook
I'm an amateur cook but I'm good at following recipes. Love trying new things.
My favorite things to cook
Breakfast casseroles, gnocchi, fish, chicken dishes.
My cooking triumphs
Gnocchi! Took me forever to perfect it but now I'm pretty good at it.
My cooking tragedies
Made Thai curried chicken once for a group of friends who all came over to dinner. Made the mistake of not testing it while cooking. Turned out the coconut milk was bad -- ruined the entire dish. We went out for pizza that night :-)

Raisin Sour Cream Bars
I have been wanting to make this for a long time and finally did last night. I soooo wish I had read the reviews first, however. I baked them for the 20 minutes the recipe calls for, then left them out overnight to cool. This morning when I went to serve them to my employees at work, it was nothing but raw mush. Great-smelling, but raw. Considering it had eggs in it, we thought it best not to chance it. Next time I'll definitely bake it for the 35-40 minutes others suggested. And I definitely will make it again; smelled too amazing not to!

Filet Mignon with Rich Balsamic Glaze
This was pretty good. A tiny bit too "vinegary" for my taste, but based on the other reviews that is probably just me. I'm more the sauteed mushroom kind of guy when it comes to filet mignon. However, I was very pleased how perfectly cooked the meat turned out in following this recipe.
