About this Cook
I love cooking. I try and cook every night and I love that my husband doesn't mind sampling new recipes. I love to entertain as well and one of my favorite things I look forward to all year is to host Thanksgiving!
My favorite things to cook
I'm actually up for anything but if I had to choose a favorite thing to cook, it would have to be hot finger foods at parties and any chicken dish. Chicken is so versatile. I have never taken a culinary class, but I would love to. My mother and grandmother have taught me from a very early age.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Homemade everything at Thanksgiving.. gravy, pies, breads, you name it. Christmas and Easter too. It has to be homemade or I will be avoiding serving it (when people bring it to the house) as rude as that may sound.
My cooking triumphs
Thanksgiving - hands down. Its always a hit.
My cooking tragedies
So many of my failures are due to having too many ingredients usually. Most of my knock out dishes are with less than 6 ingredients.

Flatlander Chili
Great recipe!! I just tried it last night and switched out the tomato juice for diced tomatoes based on other reviews. I also sauteed the onion and added two cloves of minced garlic to the pan. The result was fantastic. I'm not typically one for measuring ingredients and it didn't matter. In the end, I added more cayenne for our own tastes. Topped off the bowls with some shredded cheese and served with tortilla chips - yum!! Easy and I will make this again.

The Best and Cheesiest Artichoke Dip
I've made hot artichoke dip so many times but I'm surprised to see no garlic. I also add minced onion and I love how the mayo gives it a nice tangy taste. Tip: I use my Crock Pot Dip Master at parties to keep this warm the entire time. I just plug it in and leave it. I usually have to make an extra batch to keep on reserve because it goes so fast! I just made some Pita Crisps to go with this dip for tonight's party. I'll post the recipe. They are really easy to make and really good!
