About this Cook
I'm a young mother that loves to cook and experiment with new tastes. My only problem is, of course, my children aren't to keen on my style of cooking. So, unfortunately, french fries are a regular part of my supper plans. Compramise is a good thing, I guess!!
My favorite things to cook
Personally, I'm a baker. I've been baking since I was 8. Cooking I've only done for the past 5 or so years. I'd have to say that good ol' home cookin' is my favorite, but I hold a special place for "southern" flare.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mother hates to cook, and my dad cooks very little. Unfortunately, there aren't very many traditions that my family shares when it comes to food. My goal is to change that with my own family. Food is a good bonding medium, and traditions are important.
My cooking triumphs
I'm self taught. My parents aren't much for being in the kitchen, but I sure am. Everything I know I've learned by experience or from magazines.
My cooking tragedies
WOW!! I've had several. I don't even know where to begin.

Blue Cheese Dip II
I liked this dip/dressing. It was really thick at first. Unfortunately, after a few hours in the fridge, it got thinner. The follow day it was the consistency of salad dressing. Still tasted fabulous, if not better! My only other complaint is it has too strong of an onion flavor. That could be due to the green onions I had. I thought they were a little strong to begin with because they made me cry when I was cutting them, which is not something I find typical with green onions. All this said, I will absolutely be making this again!

Absolute Best Pancake Syrup
Made this in a pinch when I ran out of syrup one morning. It was delicious! My kids absolutely loved it. It tastes like liquid cinnamon rolls. Quite a nice change from the typical maple syrup. I will be making this again, although not too frequently as it isn't healthy in the least bit.
