I'm a country girl from a very small town in Missouri. I moved to Springfield 3 years ago and I love it here! I've been cooking since I was a young teenager and I'm continually improving and looking to try new recipes.
My favorite things to cook
My favorites include Venison Parmesan, Grilled Teriyaki Skewers, Oven Roasted Potatoes, Tortilla Pizzas, Grilled Veggies, Stir Fry, Fried Pickles...and my quest for the perfect biscuit recipe keeps me busy cooking biscuits!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Fish Frys!!! We get together to go fishing, then we cook our catch. It's a full day of fun...whether it's crappie, perch or trout - we love this tradition.
My cooking triumphs
I had always wanted to try lamb but have been afraid to attempt cooking it. After spending hours of researching recipes, I finally gave it a whirl. It turned out PERFECT! Which was a good thing b/c I cooked it for my date during a candlelight dinner for two!
My cooking tragedies
Tuna-Potato Patties...YUCK! The recipe sounded great - but they were horrible. I had to throw out all of them.
