The court is still out as to whether or not I should ever drink while cooking. In other news. I only had to make dinner for myself tonight, which means CHICKEN. For some reason, the boyfriend's ex made plain baked chicken way too often, so either he is tired of chicken or it brings back… MORE

Last night I made carrot cake cupcakes - it was my first time trying and I think they turned out well! When I was making them I remembered how much I looooove cake batter. I almost sacrificed one cupcake so I could eat the batter. Actually, making that carrot cake brought me back to one of… MORE

Chefs you admire: My mom, and anyone who can put a flair on food with decorations. I have a hard time with the “presentation” part.   What cooking shows do you watch? I don't get cable so I can only see the travel/cooking show on PBS. I’d love to watch the show with the guy who look… MORE

I don't know why or how, but recently I got it in my head that I wanted to tackle a pizza. Actually, thinking on it, it's because I discovered the Single Servings blog/article series by Mackenzie (absolutely a great series!) which mentioned Exquisite Pizza Sauce and Whole Wheat and Honey… MORE

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! This is the second time my post has poofed when I went to publish it because of a loading error on the site. That error usually happens when I have more than one AllRecipes.com tab open, or when I'm copying recipes to multiple folders. Speaking of, the recipe box can get… MORE

I've never been on a *serious* diet until beginning in January when I decided that, even though I was "normal" BMI I could stand to lose a bit - for my self confidence factor. Growing up I was always very small so even an extra 15 seemed like a lot to me. Running cross country and track for 10… MORE

Holidays are an excuse to be in the kitchen, I've decided. Easter is no eggception (tee hee). Last night I made a mad dash to HEB for next week's cooking and picked up a few eggs to decorate. I wanted to dye some eggs just to keep up the tradition but I also wanted to try an idea I… MORE

...but it's not. Ha. So a few days ago I posted a dissertation-style blog entry about Video games and cooking. It wasn't overly interesting BUT lookee at this Craigslist posting my coworker just forwarded to me: http://austin.craigslist.org/cwg/1099984883.html A quote from the… MORE

Ladies and Gentleman, I've met the enemy, and its name (at least on this website) is Grandmother's Buttermilk Cornbread. Do not pass go. Do not collect $200. Do not make more than you plan on eating, because you will eat them all and then pass out underneath your desk while your… MORE

I never loved pork chops much because my mom just pan fried them with salt n pepper. A little dry. I think I have found a way to make pork chops that has me drooling: the Cola Pork Chop. That makes for a quick n easy dinner with cabbage and sweet potatoes mashed with mint. The pork chops… MORE

About Me
I enjoy trying new recipes and unusual ingredients. There are few foods I will turn down without a second thought - sweets is one of them, and fiery hot spicy food is the other. As I'm getting older that is changing, though. I love reading cook books and doing research about food. It fascinates to no end! I usually create a recipe from several different ones. On the non-cooking side of things, I'm a Christian, native Texan and faithful Longhorn with two cats and a great boyfriend! I love the outdoors and spending time with my family and friends. I'm also somewhat obsessed with the nuclear winter and extreme survival situations.
My favorite things to cook
In general I try to cook from scratch. Any kind of bread - rolls, loaves, boules, baguettes, buns, biscuits, quick breads - will catch my eye. Pastas, soups, and cookies. I am absolutely in love with cake batter. Once I had a party in middle school where we just made a bunch of cakes and ate the batter.
My favorite family cooking traditions
The Thanksgiving and Christmas turkey/waldorf salad/mashed potatoes with gravy by my mom, buttermilk biscuits on Sunday morning before church from my Dad, grilling hamburgers in the summer in the backyard, black eyed peas for new years dinner, decorating sugar cookies on Christmas Eve with my sister, coffee any time of the night.
My cooking triumphs
I can rival my dad in his biscuit making ability. I have the perfect dinner roll recipe - my very own. I taught myself how to make jam and jelly. I taught myself how to make bread!
My cooking tragedies
dense as a stone wheat bread, homemade condensed milk tastes weird key lime pie, onions and sugar have no place hanging out together in mashed sweet potato, there's nothing puffy about my lemon meringue, and the bottom of the fish tank poached salmon.
