About this Cook
I'm a young urban professional working on the administrative side of the health care field. My goal is to become involved in the clinical side of things, and, as such, I'm also a part-time student. I'm also a relatively new housewife (married 11/3/03 and bought our first house 1/26/06) and the "mom" of three cats and a dog.
My favorite things to cook
My specialty is desserts, but I also love casseroles, slow cooker dishes, and italian food.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My father was an excellent cook, and I continue his traditions with light, flaky biscuits and fluffy pancakes. My mom couldn't cook very well, but made a mean grilled cheese sandwich, at which I also excel.
My cooking triumphs
I feel very proud that I am able to make my mother-in-law's Turkey Enchiladas well enough to satisfy my husband (and myself).
My cooking tragedies
I once forgot to put sugar in a batch of pumpkin pies I made for Thanksgiving dinner for the family. Not the worst mistake ever made, but definitely my most infamous!

Beef Tips and Noodles
This was decent. I agree with others that the addition of some sour cream would give it something it lacks as is. Certainly a great jumping off point for some personal experimentation.

Kentucky Bourbon Sweet Potatoes
When this first came out of the oven, it smelled really strongly of raw bourbon. I was so disappointed! But it cooled to room temperature and was then reheated later for the family Christmas dinner, and after it mellowed it turned out very nicely. Everyone really liked it, especially the DH. I used all brown sugar for a more complex flavor.

Apricot Brown Sugar Ham
This was good. I didn't have apricot jam, so I used the rest of a jar of plum jam and a little applesauce to make 1/3 of a cup, plus dijon mustard instead of mustard powder. Tasty. The only complaint I have is the cook time. After 2 hours, I checked on the ham and it just looked underdone, so I added 20 minutes and bumped the temperature to 325. When I took it out, it was still only warm in the middle--it was only an 8 pounder, too. I'd increase the cook time by at least 30 minutes, uncovered so that it gets a nice golden brown color.
