About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
I love to bbq and bake. Thanksgiving is my favorite time because I have the best excuse to make a million different things all in one day. What is better than getting to cook all day?
My favorite family cooking traditions
Now that I don't live at home anymore my mom and I have a standing weekly dinner "date" which is great. I cook for her, and we get to spend time together.
My cooking triumphs
My blueberry pie is legendary with anyone who has tried it, and ever since I made homemade ravioli I can't wait to break out the pasta machine again. Last thanksgiving I cooked a feast for 13 people which included four pies and all the traditional dinner fixings from scratch. I made a ton of food thinking I would have yummy leftovers for days, but there wasn't much left.
My cooking tragedies
When I was nine I tried to make a key lime pie, but I used evaporated milk instead of sweetened condensed and it was SO BAD. Recently I had many roadblockes in perfecting hollandaise sauce (including setting a bowl on fire...) but I FINALLY get it right (three tries later...)

Roasted Potato Medley
I really like the combinations here, but the potatoes always take about double the time to bake. Worth the wait though!

Actually Delicious Turkey Burgers
These are really great. They don't need tweaking (and I mess with almost every recipe). There are moist and delicious AND healthy. YUM.

Chicken and Mushroom Saute
All right, solid recipe. Rather bland for my taste.
