About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
New Recipes. The first time making something is always the toughest. If you've made something 10 times it's almost a mindless activity. But even the simplest recipe that you've never made before is a detailed and difficult process. Trying so hard to perfect something you've never "practiced" before is thrilling.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My Grandma was born and raised in the south. You wont ever see her look at the nutritional information, count calories or worry about carbohydrates. It's sometimes ridiculously unhealthy but everything she touches in the kitchen comes out delicious. I try to emulate that. I enjoy cooking and eating and don't want to ruin a good dish by trying to cut a couple calories.
My cooking triumphs
I've taken a few recipes from this site and made them my own, perfected them to my taste. Debdoozie's Blue Ribbon Chili, Chicken Pot Pie IX, and Brown Sugar Meatloaf are my favorites. I LOVE making these dishes and everyone I feed them to LOVES to eat them. :)
My cooking tragedies
The one thing that stands out to me as a tragedy was my attempt at making a cake by following an Alton Brown recipe. I'm not sure what happened, where I went wrong... but oh it turned out SO wrong. That, and the time I set a cookbook on fire by setting it on a burner and then turning the burner on. :/

Grandma's Green Bean Casserole
Steam some fresh green beans, make sure to use French's Fried Onions, and dont be afraid to use cheese... this dish is phenomenal.

Too Much Chocolate Cake
Made this cake exactly the way the recipe calls for. Okay, one thing, I changed chocolate chips in for peanut butter chips and traded the powdered sugar topping for caramel icing. It was simply amazing. Great recipes. Follow it to the letter, achieve great results. Or mix it up JUST A LITTLE BIT and still get amazing cake. GREAT JOB!

Chuck's Favorite Mac and Cheese
This recipe is awesome. Best Mac and Cheese on the planet. Only thing I changed was the topping. I use Cheddar Jack Cheez-its and a little bit less butter so they dont get so soggy. Ive made this countless times now. It works really well for get togethers and potluck dinners etc. Everyone raves about it. Kudos to whoever Chuck is.
