About this Cook
I LOVE FOOD & I love to cook! I love to try new recipes!
My favorite things to cook
Mexican, pasta dishes, chicken...Basically anything that sounds good to me & doesn't sound TOO drawn out/long/complicated. I seem to make more chicken dishes than anything & I'm not sure why that is & I love seasonings! I have really become one to use seasonings where as I didn't so much when I started cooking so many years ago!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I grew up with a Grandmother & Great Aunt that were great cooks! My mother cooked more in my younger days, but as we got older she was working full time & not home as much. My Dad loved to cook too, but I was never a big fan of my Dad's cooking. It wasn't until he was gone that I finally decided to try chili! I was a VERY picky eater growing up. I've always loved the kitchen & being that my Dad managed grocery stores when I was a kid, I love grocery shopping!
My cooking triumphs
I made my very first Thanksgiving dinner when I was 21 for my boyfriend & his family. Also, I did it all by myself in the kitchen of our one bedroom apartment!
My cooking tragedies
Ex husband's birthday cake when I was 9 months pregnant! I had the oven set like 100 degrees too hot & so the cake was a total disaster! Also the runza's that I made & absolutely hated! They took me all day & we had all left over b/c I didn't like them! I can't tell you how many loaves of bread I had from this mess too, it was pretty bad. I will never live either of those two down! Gotta be able to laugh at yourself though & don't take it too seriously!

Simple Raisin Pie
My boyfriend said it was fantastic! This was my first attempt (had never even heard of raisin pie) and it came out great! I did not put a top crust on mine as his Mom said she doesn't do that.

Beef Enchiladas II
I really liked these & I've never had a beef enchilada before. I followed another reviewer and put taco seasoning in my beef and used a can of enchilada sauce rather than the package. My boyfriend, who was the reason I was making these, said they were so spicy he was getting heartburn after just one! So...beware. Definitely would recommend for others, but not sure I'll make again just b/c of the spicy factor and my boyfriend's heartburn.
