About this Cook
As of 2009 I find myself as a 46 year old newlywed who has been transplanted from the "Big City" to "Smallville" U.S.A. LOL. I would not change it for anything. All of our children are grown and gone and it is just my hubby & I. I find it rather nice that we both enjoy cooking and hubby loves the fact that I am willing to try out so many new recipes. He never knows what I'll whip up for him next.
My favorite things to cook
Persian food. I learned the proper way to cook some of it when I was 16 years old and I make the best Basmati Rice & Tadik you would ever want to taste. During the Summer months I love using the slow cooker as it does not heat up the kitchen. I have to admit that the most fun I ever have is when I am cooking for others!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanksgiving would not be the same without mom's Oyster dressing, some turnip greens and a squash casserole! Christmas would be weird without my Brothers standing rib roast, or my Peach Schnapps glazed Ham & fresh baked bread.
My cooking triumphs
My Grandmother Griffin(God rest her soul) was the best cook in Candler county. Any & everyone who ever put a bite of her cooking in their mouth would vouch for that. LONG story short, as an adult I was able to cook supper for her. Nothing fancy, just a simple country meal. After she tasted everything she looked at me with both pride and amazement & told me I was a GOOD cook! She then ate every bite on her plate! She, to my knowledge, had never complimented anyone's cooking before! THAT was my biggest triumph.
My cooking tragedies
While Hubby & I were dating I wanted to cook him a tried & true Persian dish that I knew would knock his socks off. He had a flat top electric range which I had never cooked on before (I had a gas range) & I started sipping on a bottle of white wine. It was good wine. I sipped & sipped & ended up watching the news with him on the sofa. Then I smelt something that was not right! I had burnt everything. The chicken was ruined the rice was awful, & I was lit up like a Christmas tree. He thought it was funny & I was appalled. He/we ate what we could stomach and trashed the rest. It was the 1st time in over 20 years I had burned a meal. I have not done it since. And you better believe that I re-cooked that meal at a later date. Yep I did it on his stove, I left out the wine sipping and stayed in the kitchen and it was wonderful.

Slow Cooker Turkey Legs
Do not be afraid to try this! Save the broth that forms in the foil to make your gravy!
