About this Cook
Well, I am a true Southern girl, who loves traditional Southern cuisine, but loves to cook fare from all over the world. Our current Asian exchange student has me experimenting with stir fry right now. Hoping to learn to cook Mid-East cuisine from a new friend in the coming months!
My favorite things to cook
Wow, hard question. Love favorites like my mom's meatloaf, Allrecipes flat iron steak, chicken enchiladas, anything cooked with balsamic vinegar! Favorite dessert is Tiramisu Trifle (to die for, but I only make it for people I love because it is labor intensive :))
My favorite family cooking traditions
Love the holidays. Soups on Christmas Eve, Honey Baked Turkey at Thanksgiving, Stromboli for tailgating at Mississippi State University football games! Go Dawgs!
My cooking triumphs
I really do make a truly moist turkey bird, marinated and cooked with honey, worchestershire sauce, soy sauce, butter, and rosemary.
My cooking tragedies
Sadly, my husband said not to make any more potato cakes with leftover mashed potatoes. Can't say that I blame him, though.

Hot Pizza Dip
I've been making this dip for several years with just a couple of changes. I mix a cup of sour cream and 8 ounces of cream cheese with the Italian seasoning and layer the other ingredients as described. Also, we serve it with Frito Scoops rather than baguettes. This is always such a hit and a great, hearty dip for teens and adults alike.

Perfect Turkey
Cooked the bird according to the recipe, but it was a disappointment compared to past turkeys. Was much drier than the recipe I usually use, which involves honey, worshestershire sauce, soy sauce and poultry seasoning. Oh well, live and learn, and go back to what works for you!

Perfect Flat Iron Steak
Wow, this was fantastic! This is the perfect Sunday-After-Church main dish. You can mix up the marinade overnight, and pour it on the steak Sun. morning. Since it cooks in a skillet only 10 minutes, you have dinner on the table in a flash. The marinade was delicious. Not too overpowering, just the perfect complement for the meat. Since I'd never had flat iron steak, I was afraid that the lean cut would be very tough. Perhaps it would be without the wine to tenderize it. However, it was very tender. The 4.5 minute per side was perfect. It is one the rare side of medium rare, but since our whole family perfers medium rare, it was very much to our liking. The kids and hubby loved it and I'll be making it again many more times!
