About this Cook
Growing up I was a "latch-key kid" so I started cooking in grade school. I would call my mom at work and ask her how to make some thing for my after school snack. In those days the most difficult item I made was Cream Tuna on Toast. I have come all way since then. I like to make lots of different things but not really tedious, time-consuming things. Most of the time I just get ideas from the recipes I look at and do my own thing, which can often be a problem when it was really good and I want to be able to make it again and I have no recipe. I think I learned that from my dad, growing up he did all of the "week night" cooking and didn't use recipes. He has told me some of his "experiments" were so bad we would end going out for dinner but I don't remember that happening.
My favorite things to cook
Well, I won't cook anything I don't like. But I really like to cook things that "wow" other people.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My sister and I cooking holiday meals together.
My cooking triumphs
Mastering my Great-Grandmothers amazing Potato Roll recipe! My dad says I will always have a seat at anyones table if I make them.
My cooking tragedies
One that I can remember... I hadn't had much experience using a slow cooker and was making a package of 15 bean soup (since I was broke!) I followed the instructions on the bag... needless to say my crock-pot was nearly overflowing with liquid and the beans never did cook all the way. I didn't eat it.

Curried Coconut Chicken
I was able to salvage it and get to something edible. Extremely bland. It’s a good recipe to build on, but not as written.
