About this Cook
I basically consider myself a foodie. Learned a had a knack for baking and cooking at a young age. Won my first cookie baking contest at 15. Worked in a bakery for 3 years, before getting a real job. Opted to program computers instead of going to the culinary arts schools I was accepted into. Still regret that.
My favorite things to cook
Love to bake. Cookies, cakes, bread, and anything else that involves bread dough.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Chili on xmas eve. Sushi on New years eve. Making cookies for Halloween, xmas and easer. As well as my grandmothers easter braid on Easter.
My cooking triumphs
I have not burned down the house yet.
My cooking tragedies
Buying a house with a flat surface electric cooktop. This sucker can not be regulated. I am changing out to gas as soon as the finances come available.

Old Fashioned Coconut Cream Pie
As written I gave it a 4. My modifications made it a 5 for me. 3 egg yolks, I also used 1 1/2 cups of coconut milk in place of 1 1/2 cups of the 1/2 and 1/2. (please note you still use 1 1/2 cups of half and half). I used flour unlike most reviewers here. Cornstarch will give it a funky look that is not typical of a coconut cream pie (this has been my experience from other cream pies). But I am sure that is just my southern bias.

Easy OREO Truffles
Made this as written. Everyone raved. For christmas I am going to use the mint Oreos instead and drizzle some white chocolate (tinted green and red) on top. Just a helpfull hint. Melt the chocolate in the microwave per the instructions on the baker's chocolate box. It made my life much easier.

Won Ton Wrapper Appetizers
I made this for a party I gave. I followed the recipe pretty much verbatim just changed some techniques. I used italian sausage, and fresh ranch dressing used a little less per another recomendation (about 3/4 cup). Cooked the sausage first (since I had them one time before at another party and the bottoms were greasy). Everyone at my party raved and wanted the recipe. Next time I will play with the cheeses a bit and see what other combos tastes good.
