About this Cook
I went to Cottey College (a women's college in MO), married Stephen, live in Chicago, love all of it.
My favorite things to cook
Soups, cupcakes, casseroles, breakfast, pastas, anything with eggplant.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I come from a long line of pie-folk, but I'm just now learning the trade. Grandma could make anything out of nothing. I want to be like that.
My cooking triumphs
Learned to make eggplant Parmesan by making French Toast with eggplant, and replacing the spices. Could have been tragic, but now it's a family favorite.
My cooking tragedies
Almost failed Home Ec. Made cookies with a cup of baking soda instead of a teaspoon. Not good.

Artichoke Pie
Turned out really great! Here is what I tried with it: I made individual ones in a muffin tin instead of a pie plate. For the crust, I used crescent roll dough instead of pie crust. The new cook time was about 20 minutes. They were awesome, and I'm going to serve them on the side of herb roasted chicken sometime soon.

Delicious Bread
This was pretty darn easy, and it turned out pretty good. It sort of reminded me of Red Lobster biscuits, without the cheese.

Peanut Butter Vegetable Chicken Soup
So good. Reasonably healthy and very hearty. I added an extra dollop of Peanut Butter to it, but I don't think you need to. A tip: (albeit less healthy) try putting some crumbled bacon across the top of each bowl. - Just made it again and threw in some corn and fresh spinach. Honestly, this is the best soup recipe I've ever made from allrecipes.
