About this Cook
I recently moved to upstate South Carolina with my husband and daughter. I'm still trying to get back into the swing of things. I'm not currently working so I have a lot of time to play in the kitchen, but I don't seem to have as much motivation, or money for that matter. I'm thinking about trying some recipes for the darn kudzu.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook everything.I really enjoy cooking for large groups, or just for my husband and daughter.I like to use local produce when I can.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanksgiving dinner almost every year. I make a great turkey. This year,'07, I made the biscuits by hand, which was a first.
My cooking triumphs
Thanksgiving '08 was spent at my my moms in Kentucky. I made the turkey gravy (with the giblets, finely diced), and it was without a doubt, the best gravy I have ever made, possibly even tasted. My mom was really surprised, I think.
My cooking tragedies
I tried to make a reuben chicken once when I was a newlywed. The recipe called for smothering the raw chicken with saurkraut and russian dressing before cooking.That was truly disgusting. I'm not sure what went wrong there.

Oven Fried Chicken II
This recipe was pretty good but I think it calls for way too much oil. I only used about 2-3 TBSP per pan (had to use two 9X13 pans, due to so much chicken). I find that the chicken itself creates lots of grease as it cooks, so I don't need all that extra fat. As some other reviewers suggested, I used a gallon size ziplock bag to shake the flour on, then let the chicken sit for about 15 minutes before dipping in the egg wash (with hot sauce), and then the bread crumbs. I even made some country gravy with the pan drippings. Yum!

Mayonnaise Biscuits
I will never, ever tell my family that there's mayo in these biscuits, but YUM! Bonus points just for simplicity, and the taste/texture is very good.

Acorn Squash
Very good! I did add some cinnamon, and microwaved for 5 minutes before roasting. I would roast for the whole time if it were winter, if only in an effort to help heat this apartment up; however, it's been in the upper 90's here, and 20 minutes of 350 degrees was quite enough.
