About this Cook
I'm a stay at home mom and student at the moment. I'm studying nursing, and I'm in a program to get a certificate to work as a nursing assistant until I get into a nursing program. I live with my boyfriend and our sweet toddler daughter and two fat cats in SE Portland. I love to read science fiction and fiction and I would watch lots of cooking shows if we had cable! :)
My favorite things to cook
Anything that makes my boyfriend tell his friends about it. I love to hear him say "You should come over for dinner, Patricia is making this awesome dish" I make alot of Italian food because that is his preference. I really don't like to make cookies though, I'm not a fan of things I have to do in batches, lol that might be why I hate doing laundry.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every year around Christmas my sisters and I (I have 4) go over to my Mom's house and bake cookies together then we have a cookie exchange! That way we get lots of variety without having a ton of cookies or having to do a ton of baking.
My cooking triumphs
Hmmm, I made a cheesecake once that turned out well. I've developed a talent for picking steaks at the store that turn out really well.
My cooking tragedies
Lol, I made a cheesecake once... it was a different one. Oh, no I tried to fry some shrimp once and I didn't know that oil doesn't take as long as water to heat up and the pan caught on fire and I had to put the whole thing in the backyard because the smoke detector was going off. I ruined that pan.

Sweet Corn Tomalito
I didn't give this five stars because it's a little weird to make. It turned out good though, tasted like the stuff you get from Chevy's and that's what we wanted!

Amish Meatloaf
This meatloaf was not good. It was dripping with fat and was so so sweet. Way too sweet. We weren't able to eat it.

Chicken Pot Pie IX
This is absolutely delicious. I followed the recipe to the T and it was great! I didn't think it would all fit into my pie plat so I used an 8" by 8" glass pan instead. It didn't look as pretty but it tasted great! I'll make this again
