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!

Shawna's Southern Fried Chicken Salad
Made as written except that I doubled the dressing. The dressing was thin as another mentioned but I think it was designed to be so that it wilts the lettuce nicely. With that being said, I think baby spinach leaves would work great in this recipe. I love cornmeal in my breading but it does have that grit to it so if that texture bothers you, flour only would work just fine too. I thought this was pretty tasty and one that could be changed up with whatever salad fixings you had on hand.

Potato-Crusted Scallops
Loved these but I think you need to turn the 2 ingredients into 3. I thought I had sea scallops in the freezer but they ended up being bay scallops. I proceeded with the recipe anyway and they were good but after 20 minutes they were done but not brown. I tasted them at this step and they were good BUT at this point I sprinkled them with Old Bay and stuck them under the broiler for 5 minutes. After 5 minutes under the broiler the chips browned up nicely and the Old Bay Season was a huge plus! Squeeze a wedge of fresh lemon over the scallops and you have a 5 star all the way! Can't wait to try this again with the sea scallops.

Spaghetti Sandwiches
These were really fun and something I would make again. I skipped the chopped tomatoes because the hubby does not like them. Turns out I think they would have just got lost in all of it but that is only my opinion. I say use a piece of sliced mozzarella in their place. Again, just my opinion. I did use fresh oregano because I always use fresh herbs instead of dried if I have them on hand but dried would have worked just fine too. This is a fun recipe and one the kiddo's will love!
