About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
My favorite things to make are my fav foods like mac & cheese, hamburgers, French fries, spaghetti, and more. With me with no work I tend to do most of the cooking
My favorite family cooking traditions
We don't really have any which is weird since we are (on my moms side) Irish. besides a few recipes of my moms own creation, that the closet we have to traditions
My cooking triumphs
I have two. 1 when my mom said I cooked a mac & cheese recipe my mom invented was better then when she makes it. And 2 when I invited my best friend calah over for fish and chips, she had tolled me earlier she and her family go from Ottawa were we live to Toronto a 5 or more hour there and 5 or more back just for a specific place for fish and chip because they where the best there family ever had. Well it was nice after having a bite that they were awesome, but I found out her true felling's when we wore at her house the next day. When here mother came out when we were on the front porch she said to her mom that she had to try them, because they were even better then the one's in Toronto. Well I was stunned Best complement I've ever had
My cooking tragedies
the worst was the spaghetti sauce fiasco. when my sauce was simmering on low, all of a sudden my little sis said she smelled something burning. I ran to find that the heat had been switched to high and it had burned. turns out my dad a major fuse about keeping a clean house, he had been cleaning the stove from the sauce splatter, he had turned the dial when he was cleaning. I almost cried

Beer Batter Fish Made Great
first I not a great fan of spice so if you're like me reduce the garlic and paprika to 2 teaspoons then ad some vinegar an baking powder or better some baking soda. the vinegar and soda make a crisper batter when fried (learned that from a successful fish and chip wagon hey,the UK know what there talking about) they where so good that my best friend said they where better then the fish and chips she had ever had. better then the ones her family would travel 10 hours there and back from Toronto just for those fish and chips.

Fried Mozzarella Cheese Sticks
first do not buy italian crums unless you like parmesan (I don't) 2 using plain crums use garlic powder and onion powder not garlic or onion salt oterwise it will be too salty(trid the salt) 3. flour egg and crum 3 times so the cheese is totally coverd ( dinner drive in's and dive's visted a restaraunt were there stick are well loved the owner and cook said at least 3 times) 4. a lower temp closer to 350F for 30 sec will produes a beter cooking throug out and place in a paper towel and softly pat dry (iv'e done this recipe and realy have made it better even my Dad said they were Very Nice to him that a High Compement BloomofSparks
