I'm having withdrawals.  I wander around in circles not knowing what to do.  It's painful.  The pages of my favorite cooking magazines are worn from flipping through for lack of boredom.  There is now not a single question or doubt in my mind as to where my passion lies.  It's in the kitchen,… MORE

About this Cook
I'm embracing country life, one dish at a time at Having grown up a city girl, I've had to learn to become resourceful, especially when it comes to cooking and baking. It's been challenging, but I wouldn't trade the beauty and peace for any other place.
My favorite things to cook
Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners with all the trimmings.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I come from a family that loves their meat, especially when it's hot off the outdoor grill. When the weather is nice, we move our cooking outside to enjoy gatherings with friends and firing up good eats on the bbq.
My cooking triumphs
Second helpings at the dinner table.
My cooking tragedies
None I care to recount. There have been many over the years.

Chewy Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies
As written, 4 stars. With changes as suggested by others, a solid 5 stars. Go with 1-3/4 cups flour, 2 teaspoons baking soda, and reduce salt to 1/2 teaspoon. Excellent cookie. Crisp on the outside, chewy on the inside.

Mardi Gras King Cake
Fabulous! Like others, I cut the recipe in half. Now I wish I hadn't because it disappeared so fast! No changes or tweaking needed on this one. Absolutely perfect. Nothing more to say that hasn't been said already. Definitely a keeper.

Grandmother's Buttermilk Cornbread
This is the way we like cornbread. Moist, not too grainy, a hint of sweetness, and a perfect ratio of flour to cornmeal. I'm not quite sure I would go to all the trouble making it as written. I whisked the dry ingredients in a large bowl, then added the wet ingredients, folding lightly just until blended. It came out perfect. A definite keeper.
