About this Cook
Though I grew up in Atlanta, I've lived in Texas since 1970 so it really is home. I'm in the right place because I love the spice and heat of our food - Tex-Mex, Southwest and Barbecue.
My favorite things to cook
Pasta! I love experimenting and coming up with different low/lower fat sauces for it. Thanksgiving Dinner - because it is all about the food and being thankful for it. It has none of the stress or pressure of Christmas.

Fluffy French Toast
I would never have thought to add flour to my French Toast batter but I will from now on. It gives it the most wonderful texture and I think I even converted my 80+ yr. old mother who has been making FT all her life.

Turkey Taco Soup
Great soup! I had to make a few subs due to what I had on hand but I followed the basic guidelines of the recipes and we loved it. I used Rotel for the tomatoes, no celery or olives, Penzey's Bold Taco seasoning, some frozen Hatch green chiles. It was definitely not too spicy even with the Rotel but the chiles we used weren't very hot. I'll be making this a lot this winter.

Quinoa with Mushrooms
I have to say right off that I didn't make this recipe as written but I am reviewing it because the flavor of the onions and mushrooms is great with the quinoa. I used less (about 1/2) mushroom and onion and I think more might have been too much and we love both. I did not brown the quinoa nor did I use the Parmesan. I'll be making this again.
