About this Cook
I love to cook and try different things. It's so nice to make a great meal for family and friends and have them ask for your recipe and compliment you on your dishes. I love making people happy and I really enjoy cooking with my boyfriend. We learn a lot from each other and together we've come up with some great recipes :)

Anything people will love!
My cooking triumphs
When I was 22 and living on my own, I had my family over for Christmas and made the most elaborate dinner I've ever made. EVERYTHING was made from scratch and everyone loved it! I was so nervous, but I managed to pull it off.
My cooking tragedies
For a new relationship date I cooked dinner and I was making it I ran out of things and had too much of other things. It was a nightmare. He was nice about it though. We ended up scrapping the meal and going out to dinner.

Uncle Mac's Peanut Butter and Jelly Cookies
These cookies are good. They are tasty and very easy to make. I like that you can get creative with different jam flavors as well. Here are the revisions I made on my first try at these and they turned out great. Some came from you guys here (thank you so much) and a couple of my own. 1. Definately cut the sugar in half. I didn't even attempt to make it with what the recipe calls for per someone's suggestion and I'm glad, because while I enjoy "sweet" too much can ruin it. They were the perfect amount of sweetness with half the sugar. 2. I sprayed the fork with cooking spray and as someone else mentioned DON'T flatten these cookies with the fork, whatever you use to make the "filling hole" or otherwise. An 1/8 teaspoon works for the indentation. Press just enough to make a slight dip in the center so the filling won't run over. 3. DEFINATELY mix the jelly or jam before you drop it on the cookies. Much less mess and easier to control. 4. I doubled the recipe as well per other suggestions and I had a ton of cookies, which was fine because they are smaller, but it seems the original amount would yeild a good amount of cookies. 5. BAKE TIME: You guys are right! 8 minutes is PERFECT. 6. Finally, I added good pinches of cinnamon and nutmeg. They turned out great! Thank you for sharing the recipe and thank you to all the others who shared their own revisions. What a great team we all make on here :D! Lol.

Beef Stewganoff
I LOVE this recipe. It was the first time I ever made a stew and my boy friend, who loves stew really enjoyed it and said it was a "keeper". I served it with warm crusty bread and garlic, parmesean, buttered noodles, then we made mashed potatoes to go with it the next night. You can eat it just as a soup too. The only change I made was coating the beef in flour and searing it before adding it. This thickened it up a bit and made the beef more tender. I chose to omit the peas because I don't like them, so I only simmered it for 45 minutes, but I had also cut the recipe in half. I will definately make this as a cold winter night comfort food dish again! Thank you for sharing your recipe.

Boilermaker Tailgate Chili
Sooooo good. I didn't use tabasco for those that don't like it too spicy. I figured they could add it if they wanted. I also found a "basic beer cheese bread" recipe that I made and it complimented your chili very nicely. Thank you for sharing this, but I have to tell you as a University of Michigan Grad, we play you guys next Saturday and we will beat you while eating your delicious chili. LOL Seriously though. Loved this recipe :)
