About this Cook
I love to eat and food has always and will always be one of my passions. I love to cook for others!
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook soups, bake, fry, slow cook, and really anything! I'm always up for a good challenge in the kitchen!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Figgy Pudding- my aunt makes it every year for Christmas and since I am the only girl in my generation, I have a feeling it will someday pass down to me. Anything Southern...my Mama's mother was a North Carolina belle and could cook anything as long as it was fried, covered in gravy, or cooked in fat back :)

Cajun Chicken Pasta
This, as it is, was just okay for me. I feel like it has tremendous potential, but it was just a little off. First and foremost, I would change the noodle from linguini to penne or farfalle. It seems like it would be a much better accompaniment to the flavors. I almost doubled the spices and it still didn't have enough kick to it. Perhaps it was the particular cajun seasoning I used (Emeril's Bayou Blast) but something was definitely missing. I will try and add Tabasco if I make it again. I also think using grilled chicken would make this dish much better and would make the flavor of the chicken really stand out. Overall, just okay.

Chicken Chimichangas
I love chimichangas and this was my first attempt at making them...and what a successful one it was. These are easy and delicious. I used canned chicken breast, which although it is canned, I feel when putting it in something like this where you are smothering them with sauce and stuffing them in a tortilla, it turns out great. Its the cheapest and easiest way to get chicken for something like this.

Bacon Wrapped Water Chestnuts III
These are wonderful, had to cook them a little while longer and I didn't drain the grease and while they were still great, I think draining the grease would have made them even better. I like the idea someone else had about using a metal rack to let the fat drip off into the bottom of the pan, that way you don't have to worry about having to empty to bottom of the pan half way through
