About this Cook
I'm just a young wife and mom. I love to cook and always have. I loved to cook and bake with my brother and mom growing up, and I loved to watch my dad grill and smoke meats.
My favorite things to cook
Recipes that aren't too confusing and don't have a million ingredients! I like to keep it simple.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I loved it when my brother and I would make dessert every night after we had eaten dinner. We tried new recipes every night and rated them. Also I liked when we took turns making dinner through the week.
My cooking triumphs
I love to experiment and add this or that, so sometimes things turn out triumphs are when I hear my husband say "this is good"-which (thankfully) is getting more and more frequent;)
My cooking tragedies
LOTS of them!! I have made so many things that have turned out plain BAD! I can't put my finger on just one!

Millet Muffins
fantastic! Subbed soy milk + 1 T vinegar for the buttermilk. Wonder if you could make the batter into pancakes???

Greek Chicken
This was SO good!!! I marinated for almost 24 hours. If my grill wouldn't have caught the chicken on FIRE it would have been better. But I got some great char marks (haha) and baked it off the rest of the way in the oven. It was so moist and had fantastic flavor! Thank you!
