About this Cook
I call myself the Sporadic Cook because I don't get to cook very often. I mostly experiment on holiday breaks and summer vacations. I am getting more confident in my cooking and am able to cook a couple of meals a week for my family.
My favorite things to cook
I like to bake. I enjoy baking cakes and cookies. Currently, I'm trying to teach myself to cook everything else.
My cooking triumphs
I can bake very well actually! Right now I'm working on perfecting the black forest cake. This summer I learned how to work our gas grill and grilled up some mighty fine guacamole bacon cheeseburger sliders and tasty grilled chicken for lunch salads. I even learned how to fry chicken and some awesome country gravy from the drippings. So far, summer has been pretty successful in the cooking department! :)
My cooking tragedies
Tried many macaroni and cheese recipes and still haven't found the right one.

Granny Kat's Pumpkin Roll
This pumpkin roll got rave reviews from all the people who tried it. The only recommendation I would like to try is maybe using a longer pan as I wish the cake and filling were more evening spread throughout. I was hoping it had more of a spiral look. Definitely will make again, but will experiment with baking time and pan sizes.

Awesome Pasta Salad
This was really good! I left out the pimentos, added shredded Parmesan cheese, and upped the salad dressing by adding a little more right before serving. Will make again!

Chili-Lime Chicken Kabobs
Loved the marinade! I used the juice of 2 limes because I wanted that extra citrus flavor.
