About this Cook
I grew up in Georgia. Met the greatest guy in the world there 20 years ago. He joined the military and we have moved around some. We were at Ft. Riley Kansas and Keesler AFB Biloxi. Now He's at Kelly AFB San Antonio. We have 2 grown kids. It has flown by too fast. I'm almost afraid to blink at this point.
My favorite things to cook
I love to experiment, but no one else likes it. I mainly cook the foods we grew up eating. Sometimes made a bit healthier.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love thinking about all the things my nanny and great aunt used to cook. I cook like my nanny at times. She was of course the main influence in my life. We spent alot of time with her since my mom was divorced and worked alot. She would ask me to help her in the kitchen and I loved it. I hope when I am a nanny i will be just like her.
My cooking triumphs
not sure if I have had my best yet
My cooking tragedies
I have of course cooked the holiday turkey with the giblet bag in the cavity only to remove it at the dinner table in disgust. And unfortunately I am sure they'll be more in the future.

Aunt Millie's Broccoli Casserole
I make this casserole every time I'm wanting comfort food. I have had it exactly as written without the croutons. Usually I make a combination of this casserole and paula deens broccoli casserole which the addition is mayo, and eggs, and ritz instead of croutons. Paula Deens is a little more decadent, I can whip this one up so quickly and throw it in the oven with anything. I also don't bother with fresh broccoli. I use chopped frozen broccoli. It's delicious.

Mom's Favorite Baked Mac and Cheese
This is a great recipe and i usually make it about once a month at the least. Its really not to fattening, and sometimes i cut up the 97 % fat free Hebrew National hot dogs in it ( at 45 calories a piece) and its like having a very fattening, indulgent comfort meal without blowing your whole day on calories.

Pan-Roasted Chicken with Lemon-Garlic Brussels Sprouts and Potatoes
I love this dressing. I have made this both ways with the chicken ( boneless) and without Just veggies) I liked the dressing on the chicken. it reminded me of some of the dishes at the local Greek restaurant.. my husband though prefers his chicken without the dressing, but we both agree the lemon dressing on potatoes tastes like the ones the Greek rest. serves.
