Without going into all of the details, let me just say that last week was one heck of an emotional roller coaster ride and a week I hope to never see a repeat of. I’ll skip the first part of the week and fast forward to Thursday. Thursdays have potential to be late nights for me at work and… MORE

About this Cook
Hello, my name is Nicole. I am 41 years old and have been married to my high school sweetheart for 17 years now. I haven't always enjoyed cooking but Allrecipes has changed that for me over the years. I now consider myself a foodie and am always up for a good challenge in the kitchen. There isn't anything I won't try at least once. Summer is my favorite time of the year and when I am not recipe hunting, menu planning, etc. I spend my time fishing gardening, and babysitting my chickens.
My favorite things to cook
Soups, Mexican, Italian, Asian, and grilling
My favorite family cooking traditions
I don't really have any so I have started my own. Allrecipes has taught me to "think outside the box". I love trying new and unusual things that I would have never dared or even thought of before discovering this place.
My cooking triumphs
When I got married, I honestly had 0% experience in the kitchen. My mom was the kind that wanted the whole kitchen to herself so that nobody was in her way and I was only allowed in there to grab the plates, utensils, etc. to set the table. I really never thought about what I was going to cook until we got back from our honeymoon and then I was like, "uh oh!". Amazingly enough it all came pretty natural and I am happy to say that I have never ruined a meal forcing us to order take-out.
My cooking tragedies
Me and double battering things do not get along!

Hot Dog Sausages
Loved the concept but as written I found this too salty. No, I didn't use onion salt or garlic salt but I made as written. I made 2 batches today. One as written and one with my own tweaks. As written 4 stars and with my tweaks 5. My own batch I did 1 pound of ground beef to 1/2 pound of ground pork, 2 tsp salt, 2 tsp paprika, and 1 tsp of smoked paprika and the rest the same. LOVED this as a way to use up those extra hotdog buns you get in the package. Thanks Chef John and I will make this again!

Cinnamon Roll Popcorn
Made as written leaving the optional walnuts out and this taste just like a cinnamon roll. I prefer the savory type of popcorn but like to make sweet for the husband sometimes. If you like popcorn and cinnamon rolls you must give this one a try.

Eggplant Tacos
These were amazingly good tacos for not having meat in them. Hubby and I are big meat eaters and not big on eggplant but we both enjoyed them very much. The seasonings used are a great way to dress up eggplant. Give this one a try for something fun and unique!
