About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake with alcohol/liquor...I've become known for my "tipsy" desserts.
My cooking triumphs
Successfully learning to make a firm and fluffy angel food cake...I am so proud now when they come out of the pan and don't deflate.
My cooking tragedies
Most of my cooking tragedies involve grilling; ie. rubber chicken and meatball sized hamburgers. I belong indoors when I cook apparently!

Cocoa Rum Balls
I make these every year for my friends and co-workers and they are a hit every time. Sometimes I sub Kahlua for rum and roll them in coconut for a twist; those always go over well.

Colorado Green Chili (Chile Verde)
Just won first place in the company chili cook-off with this recipe! I doubled the recipe to yeild 12 servings, but reduced the liquids...only used 4 cups chicken broth and drained the tomatoes; this gave a perfect "chili-like" consistancy. Substituted pablano & anaheim for Big Jim chiles since I live in the mid-west and couldn't get any Big Jim. It was a sure hit!
