As always, I watch Food Network whenever I have spare time, or when I am doing things around the house. Lately, everything has been geared toward Thanksgiving, which is great, for the most part... I see one recipe that looks amazing and I want to make it. Then the very next show comes on, and… MORE

About this Cook
I am an environmental attorney, and have lived abroad in Spain and Italy with my husband who plays professional basketball. There, i was able to learn various food/cooking styles. Now, we are settled in the states. I have always enjoyed cooking and since building our new home I could create my kitchen to my specification so I am able to cook up a storm! I am always excited to learn new cooking techniques and try new things.
My favorite things to cook
Everything, but particularly I like to cook (and eat) gourmet appetizers and hors' deuvres.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I am Pennsylvania Dutch and my husband is African American, from the South - as you can imagine we have all sorts of food stocked up in our kitchen! I love cooking new things and family traditions alike. My mom has made every meal from scratch since I was born. I am trying to follow in her footsteps, although one of my very favorite things in the world is to go out to dinner.
My cooking triumphs
Very proud that I have finally (and much thanks to this site) learned how to cook a steak properly on the range.
My cooking tragedies
Well, once in Spain I wanted to make my husband and Easter feast since we couldnt be with family. I bought a turkey and when i went to take it out of the package i realized it had its head, eyeballs, etc. still attached!!! Im not your typical girly-girl but let me tell you, this made me so squeamish! I tried putting gloves on and slicing off the head, but i just could not do it... either my knife wasnt sharp enough or it wasnt in my heart - either way, the whole thing went in the trash and we had chicken breast for Easter that year!

Easy Pancakes
i added a teaspoon of vanilla and used slightly less baking powder as well as switching out 3 tbsp melted butter instead of oil (as per a previous reviewer) and they had nice flavor. Nice, simple, quick recipe.

Cheddar Baked Chicken
My husband really liked this. I made NO changes, except that i only had plain breadcrumbs so i just made them italian by adding oregano and some other italian spices. This recipe was very easy, fast, and good. not great health-wise so i wont make it too often, but in a pinch its perfect because you probably have all of the ingredients on-hand already without having to make an extra trip to the store. Im betting you could use something other than rice krispies cereal if you dont have it on hand (ritz or something similar). Thanks!

Caprese Appetizer
I made the recipe as-is for a bridal shower, except that I doubled it. They were gone in no time. So incredibly simple yet they look elegant and taste delicious. I will definitely be making this again for future cocktail parties. They are fun to make on decorated toothpicks.
