About this Cook
A student at the University of GA that loves, LOVES to cook! Especially budget friendly (homemade) meals.
My favorite things to cook
Anything simple and basic...NOT because I am unable to cook more advanced recipes, but the more basic the recipe, the easier it is for me to add my own touches :)
My favorite family cooking traditions
Anything with rice!
My cooking triumphs
I can decorate almost anything---cupcakes and birthday cakes are my specialty.
My cooking tragedies
Cookies are the worst for me. I can never get it just right (the inbetween chewy but crispy stage!).

Laura's Quick Slow Cooker Turkey Chili
So so so good. I subbed the tomato soup for crushed tomatoes because I like the texture (chunky) much better. I didn't have allspice so I omitted that. I cooked the ground turkey with the onions. BEST CHILI EVER!

BBQ Pork for Sandwiches
I misread someone elses review and decided to add BOTH a can of cola and a can of beef broth. Fate? I think so. Taste was exquisite. I put the cola, broth, and pork BUTT in the slow cooker and set it at 6 hours on high. Meat fell off the bone VERY easily. After shredding the meat (and removing the bone), I added the bottle of BBQ sauce (sweet baby rays). Set it the low @ 12 hours setting...WITHOUT the lid (until the sauce thickens). After it thickened...BAM!!! Yummy goodness! Thank you for the suggestions and recipe!

The Best Thai Coconut Soup
This is better than restaurant quality. No FRESH ginger available so I used powder instead (about 1 tablespoon in powder form). I had to add double the curry paste (only because it was not spicy to me, and I like that extra kick). I also added 1 thai chili pepper, chopped. Lastly, added chopped green onions (about 1 stalk). No salt and pepper needed. This was FANTASTIC!
