About this Cook
I'm a single mom of a 18 yr old son. I have spent most of his 18 yrs trying to be creative. When he was a toddler he was THE pickiest eater. I'm very good at hiding the "yucky" things in the middle of the "good" things. Now, being a teenager, I am getting really really good at cooking in bulk. He can't get enough. I love it tho. I have always loved to cook and it's a challenge to get creative - but I love it. I usually cook all weekend long and freeze it for the busy week ahead.
My favorite things to cook
Homemade breads and cookies.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Homemade baked goodies (cookies breads) the first weekend of fall. Also, been trying to re-create my grandmas' recipe for kugulis. It's an old Lithuanian potato dish made in a cast iron skillet. It was our favorite and grandma would always make it when we came in town to visit. Unfortuantely, the recipe was in her head and she has passed on long ago.
My cooking triumphs
I get euphoric ANYtime I can make a recipe from the food network and actually have it turn out.
My cooking tragedies
I was in my 20's, old enough to know better decided to have the family over for Thanksgiving Dinner. See where this is going? My mom would alwyas stuff the bird but not having the patience I decided to cook the stuffing separately. That is why, when we sat down to eat and my dad carved the bird, we discovered the neck and little bag of giblets still neatly tucked inside the bird. I learned real quick - you wash the bird on the outside AND most importantly on the INSIDE.

Ham with Pineapple
I have made this before and making again for Christmas tomorrow. I follow it exact HOWEVER - those who live in Michigan - instead of 7-Up, use Vernors Ginger Ale....YUM (also a great way to reheat - simmer in the Vernors)

Hungry Man's Baked Chicken
The chicken just cooked (covered) for the 40 mins - I took the foil off and it looked raw - I put it back in for another 30 mins - will see.....right now not sure. I had no "Shake-N-Bake" so I was looking for something different - not sure if this will beit - but I will post in 24 mins.

Bread Machine Garlic Bread
I had no problems with a flat loaf - s a matter of fact it rose right up to the top of my machine - waiting for it to 'bake' now - smells wonderful. Only thing I added was a "splash" of milk as it was kneading - it appeared a bit sticky without it.
