About this Cook
I live on a sailboat in the Virgin Islands with a tiny fridge, so there is no room for leftovers. I love the ingredient search on this site...I never waste anything! It's very expensive to live here, so we do a menu challenge-trying to spend less than $15 a day on food.
My favorite things to cook
I am a jewelry designer and work for myself, so I have the flexibility to make time-consuming or complicated meals, but I usually end up making something quick and easy or using the slow cooker.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Oyster dressing is a must for Thanksgiving and Christmas! I keep Grandma's handwritten recipe and follow it exactly.
My cooking triumphs
My very first turkey for my husband! It's called a Black Turkey, and the best I've ever had!
My cooking tragedies
There was a Key Lime Pie that we do not talk about!

Emily's Famous Hash Browns
These were great! Creamy on the inside, crispy on the outside. I did cook WAY longer than called for...maybe my heat was too low. Thanks!!

We really enjoyed this...the seasonings with the meat were great! Oh- I did use ground chicken because I couldn't find pork. Thanks!

Maple Bacon Pancake
What a great idea! I added a couple more eggs so it was a like a cross between a pancake and a quiche...kind of weird but wonderful! Thanks!
