About this Cook
I've been cooking for almost as long as I can remember , though for years I wasn't too adventurous. A few years ago, I started cooking for friends who volunteered to bring all the ingredients, if I'd do all the cooking. We got together a lot of Friday nights and tried a whole bunch of new things. Since then, I've become a sucker for good cookbooks and have been working hard to figure out what really makes good recipes good. It helps having a resource like I've really benefited from the comments and suggestions left by other cooks, as well as the recipes themselves.
My favorite things to cook
I love anything with pasta. I also love seafood and Italian foods as well as soups and chowders.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Definitely southern comfort food. It's terrific food and does bring a sense of well-being. I'm always trying to recreate these dishes.
My cooking tragedies
The worst was when I made a Turducken. All I had to do was bake it, but between too many glasses of wine and family visiting, I overcooked it by an hour. I may try again sometime, just to show everybody how good a Turducken can be.

Buttermilk Ranch Cheeseball
Very fast and easy! I made the shape more into a cheese log rather than a ball, and took it and a few sleeves of Ritz crackers to a small party. It was gone in no time and everybody raved about it. Thanks CASTOWAYS!

Unbelievable Chicken
This recipe was/is a big hit at my house! The only thing I changed was to use thighs instead of breasts. It's definitely in my top 5.

Texas Slaw
I was really not expecting to like this recipe, but felt compelled to try it based on the reviews. I am really glad I did. It's a very good cole slaw. The only thing I did to deviate from the the original recipe was to use fresh corn, rather than canned. Fast. Easy. Unique. Flavorful. Winner. Thanks CINP!
