Me as a Bride
About this Cook
I'm a recently married (08/07/10) college student (graduate 05/2012), and I enjoy cooking for my husband. I hardly ever make a recipe just as it's given... I like to add things and give it my personal touch.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook American Southern foods--cornbread, fried okra, mush-fried taters, chicken-fried steak. I also enjoy cooking Mexican type of dishes, Italian dishes, and casseroles.
My cooking triumphs
I feel like I've finally mastered biscuits and white gravy!

New York-Style Cheesecake
I had to use almost twice the butter to get the crust to stick, and I think I should have used a couple more Tbsp (so, about a stick), as it fell apart when I cut it. Flavor was very good; I didn't use the lemon/orange juice. Texture was great too. I followed the directions about leaving it in the oven, turned off, and it still split, but not as bad as Chef John's in his video. Overall, quite happy and this will be my go-to cheesecake recipe from now on. I look forward to trying it with the citrus juice next time.

Peach Cobbler VI
This was a great cobbler. The dough/crust was a little chewy and the center didn't get done before the edges were dark. I'll be using this again, though, as hubby liked it a lot!
