About this Cook
Hi! I’m a 21 yr old college student who can't decide on a major. Some days it’s BioChem, others its Feminist studies; meanwhile I toy with the ambition of becoming a doctor. It's a challenge. Currently I live with my mom, however I hope to move back to my hometown in about a year and transfer to a school there. I love Texas, but detest our governor. I'm a Democrat however I do think Republicans can come up with some good ideas. My hobbies include knitting, cooking, reading, walking, swimming, exploring the great outdoors (and I don't mean my back yard, but the state and national parks) but woe betides me if I forget the bug repellent! I like to travel, however I have never been outside my state, or really even further west than hill country. I can't wait for the day where I have saved enough money to really explore, maybe I'll spend a year backpacking before I start Grad School, because yes, there will be Grad School. Of course joining the Peace Corps is always a possibility...

Marie's Easy Slow Cooker Pot Roast
I followed the recipe exactly and was a bit disappointed. I had high hopes starting out but the end result was rather bland. Don’t get me wrong, the meat was nice and tender, the veggies yummy (a little mushy, but a good mushy), and there was plenty of gravy. However it needed flavor, also searing the meat with salt and pepper didn’t do anything for it. What I would do next time is sear the meat with Worcestershire, olive oil, and a little butter. Then after I put the meat into the crock-pot with veggies on top of the meat. I would deglaze the pan with a mix of either Merlot or Cabernet Sauvignon and beef stock. Then I would pour the liquid with pan drippings into the crock-pot. I’m not sure if I would use the onion soup mix or not, I think that would depend on the users personal preference.

Banana Pudding IV
Awsome! The only thing I did was add 2 cups of milk instead of three to give it a nice thick almost custard like texture. Next time I think I will use real whipped cream instead of whipped topping just because I like it better.
