I'm a decent cook.  I have my moments.  I can follow a recipe and, when the recipe is good, I look good.  I'm not the creative come-up-with-it-myself culinary genius.  I probably couldn't even deconstruct a peanut butter sandwich.

About this Cook
I'm 22 and a momma to a lovely little bundle of love and poop named Riley Rose and another bundle of love and poop, a dog, named Salinger. My human and non-human animal keep me pretty busy. When I'm not changing diapers, acting as a human cow, or vacuuming up shredded tissues, I am a wizard in the kitchen, whipping up tasty vegetarian concoctions that are kind to my animal pals. Allrecipes.com is my best friend and I try to return the food love by leaving recipe reviews and ratings that have a pinch of self-serving-humor.
My favorite things to cook
All things delicious-- anything sweet and ovenly is heavenly
My favorite family cooking traditions
My cooking tradition was disinterest and scoffing at all things culinary. For 18 years, I rejected the notion that I would ever be found slaving in the kitchen. Much to my mother's dismay, I denied all her attempts at teaching me how to cook. After leaving for college and realizing that good dinners don't grow in microwaves, I had to attempt to learn my way around the kitchen. After many failed recipes and trash bags full of inedible food, my kitchen thumb is now as green as the neighbor's jealousy at how delicious my apartment smells. Food should be fun but sometimes cooking new recipes can be stressful. Thanks to allrecipes, I get to learn from everyone else's mistakes, too bad I didn't learn that sooner.

Cream Corn Like No Other
I've made this a bunch of times and it is SO much better when I used fresh corn-- more crunch and body to the finished product. But it is still delicious with canned corn. SUCH a good, simple recipe.

King Ranch Chicken Casserole I
This casserole is no king... more like a peasant. There's no tastes that pop and no crunch.

Roasted Brussels Sprouts
Easy, simple, perfect brussel sprouts. I over salted mine but next time I will perfect it.
