I found a really awesome add-on for Firefox recently called "Food and Calorie Finder."It basically reads your text for mentions of food and brings them up in a window in your browser. Once you select the food type you can drill down; for instance it found "Bread" discussed on my page, along… MORE

I'm so glad I finally learned how to make my own udon, and I'm lucky that there's a Japanese grocery nearby with the right stuffs. Udon is really easy to make as long as you have access to udon noodles and udon dashi (soup base), and is infinitely customizable, depending on your tastes.Udon was… MORE

I can make an educated guess as to why the site was unavailable for an entire day, but even though I had that in the back of my mind I was actually kinda upset and thought maybe the site was going away...forever...There are so many good recipes on here (some of my own creations!) and more… MORE

About Me
I enjoy trying new recipes and unusual ingredients. There are few foods I will turn down without a second thought - sweets is one of them, and fiery hot spicy food is the other. As I'm getting older that is changing, though. I love reading cook books and doing research about food. It fascinates to no end! I usually create a recipe from several different ones. On the non-cooking side of things, I'm a Christian, native Texan and faithful Longhorn with two cats and a great boyfriend! I love the outdoors and spending time with my family and friends. I'm also somewhat obsessed with the nuclear winter and extreme survival situations.
My favorite things to cook
In general I try to cook from scratch. Any kind of bread - rolls, loaves, boules, baguettes, buns, biscuits, quick breads - will catch my eye. Pastas, soups, and cookies. I am absolutely in love with cake batter. Once I had a party in middle school where we just made a bunch of cakes and ate the batter.
My favorite family cooking traditions
The Thanksgiving and Christmas turkey/waldorf salad/mashed potatoes with gravy by my mom, buttermilk biscuits on Sunday morning before church from my Dad, grilling hamburgers in the summer in the backyard, black eyed peas for new years dinner, decorating sugar cookies on Christmas Eve with my sister, coffee any time of the night.
My cooking triumphs
I can rival my dad in his biscuit making ability. I have the perfect dinner roll recipe - my very own. I taught myself how to make jam and jelly. I taught myself how to make bread!
My cooking tragedies
dense as a stone wheat bread, homemade condensed milk tastes weird key lime pie, onions and sugar have no place hanging out together in mashed sweet potato, there's nothing puffy about my lemon meringue, and the bottom of the fish tank poached salmon.
