About this Cook
My husband and I live in South Korea (USAF) at least until next summer. It's very different but a new adventure every day. We have lots of animals and enjoy traveling as much as our budget will allow, LOL! After getting married, my Mom told me it was time to learn to cook so I've been learning. I'm getting more comfortable every day and my husband is thankful...he is a fabulous cook, darn him!
My favorite things to cook
Anything sweet
My favorite family cooking traditions
My Mom is the best cook and of course doesn't measure a thing. Things are a pretty southern style, not the healthiest, but oh so yummy. My family always, gathers in the kitchen. Turkey on Thanksgiving, Ham on Christmas. I always bring dessert!
My cooking triumphs
White Chocolate Cheesecake Chicken Lasagna French Fried Onion Tuna Casserole
My cooking tragedies
Oooooooooooo too many to count.

YUM-O! 1 cup milk chocolate and 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate, didn't change anything else. Delicious! Loved the tip of greasing the pan, then putting the foil in and greasing again. It helped keep the foil in place and not sliding everywhere.

Greek Penne and Chicken
As per other reviews, I added 6 oz tomato paste, marinated artichokes, canned diced tomato, and doubled the feta. I threw in some black olives and halved the pasta. Sauce base: minced garlic, diced onion, equal parts olive oil and marinated artichoke juice. Husband loved it. I'm not terribly crazy about the marinated artichokes, but it was still really good. Sauce was perfect consistency, but next time I think I'll just go with the butter. Oh yeah, I used fat free feta...not so sure that was a good choice. It was a bit rubbery. Next time, I'll just use regular feta.

Best Brownies
Very yummy! My changes were: I only baked the brownies for 20 minutes (which left them slightly fudgy), I added 2 Tbsp of milk to the frosting and cooked all of the frosting ingreadients in a sauce pan (melting the butter first then adding the rest of the ingredients) until the lumps in the powdered sugar were mostly gone. This made more of a glaze and was perfect to top my brownies. It has to sit up a bit or the frosting will run right off the brownines. NEXT TIME: I will definitely double the brownie mix, to make thicker brownies. Hubby is a chocoholic, so more is better, LOL!
