About this Cook
I'm a rather picky eater, there are a good many things I don't like but I am willing to try new things (given that the smell doesn't trigger my gag reflex before I even taste it).
My favorite things to cook
I love making pies, and decorating cakes, and cooking things with odd ingredients like artichoke hearts and olives and just seeing if it works out.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Always make a pumpkin pie for thanksgiving.
My cooking triumphs
My Pushing Daisies inspired pies are well known in my circle of friends for being the best pies around
My cooking tragedies
Once I made Ratatouille (to look like the one in the movie of the same name, which we watched that night) and I forgot to put the wax paper over it so it didn't steam at all, it was dry and undercooked. I still haven't had a chance to make it again.

Skillet Italian Chicken Parmesan
This turned out really good! I don't use premade sauces, so I made a quick homemade marinara. (Saut├ęd some garlic and dried onion flakes in garlic grapeseed oil, added large Can of tomato sauce, sea salt, fresh ground black pepper, dried basil, parsley and oregano, simmered till the rest of the food was finished-- probably 30 minutes--- stirring to keep from burning on the bottom). I used an Italian mix of shredded cheeses cause I don't like Parmesan alone. Instead of Italian seasoning, I used dried basil oregano and parsley. I never pan fry chicken above 4 (medium -low) but still got a little too dark. Would recommend cooking lower and slower so the cheese doesn't burn. Hubby really liked it and would wan it again. I thought the garlic in the sauce really gave it a good kick. Served with brussel sprouts in butter sauce.

Clone of a Cinnabon
Waaaaaaay too much cinnamon. Half of what is called for, or even just a teaspoon would be sufficient.

Witches' Brew
TOTALLY AWESOME! And we threw in a hunk of dry ice, really made it bubble and brew. Only problem with that was that the gummies stuck to the dry ice on the bottom and turned into ice cubes. But not really a big deal. I made it with Hansen's high fructose corn syrup free ginger ale and langer's hfcs free apple cider so even better. The ratios weren't quite 2 liters and 2 liters (more like 64 oz and 72 oz) but it turned out real tasty. Was a real hit at the halloween party. Highly recommend-- even extracting the hand from the glove became a bit of party entertainment.
