About this Cook
I cook mostly for family, and sometimes for friends. I actually choose to work part-time so I can have time to cook for my family. Before the kids moved out, I always made extra because their friends always seemed to show up at dinner time!
My favorite things to cook
It would be easier to give my LEAST favorite things to cook. I do, however, prefer cooking over baking.
My cooking tragedies
I haven't had many tragedies, but the worst dishes were usually when I followed a recipe rather than follow my intuition.

Buttered Biscuits
Easy and delicious just the way they are! However, I add a tablespoon of sugar when using these biscuits for strawberry shortcake. I like to "drop by rounded spoonful" for shortcake because I like the little bit of crunch you get on top. I usually have to bake them a little bit longer to get the crunchy top though. I LOVE BISCUITS!! My kids liked to eat the leftover biscuits for breakfast the next day, or as an after-school snack. Now my grandson eats the leftover biscuits when he visits. How can biscuits NOT remind you of "the old days?"

Grilled Brown Sugar Pork Chops
Yummm!! I did not expect that first bite to be so good! I used orange juice instead of apple because I didn't have any. I will try it again with the apple juice though. I don't often rate recipes with five stars, but this one deserves it! Quick, easy, AND delicious! I served this dish with couscous.

Eggplant Parmesan II
This recipe is delicious. My husband thinks he has to have meat every day, but he said he didn't miss the meat after eating this dish. Great for when you feel like eating a little lighter. One reviewer said, "Don't bread it; don't bake it; make your own sauce; grill it." I can understand making a few little changes, but if you are going to change the recipe entirely, you should submit that recipe for its own review.
