About this Cook
I"m a 24 year resident of Michigan and a true Michigander even though I have southern roots. I love cooking and I look for new things to try all the time1
My favorite things to cook
I make a great twice cooked porkchops...Might even post the recipe who knows! Also I enjoy making simple comfort foods like cheesy southern potatoes and macaroni and cheese.
My favorite family cooking traditions
The cheesy southern potatoes for sure! Also lasagna which I would make but geez 2 days to make a lasagna! I get hungry fast!
My cooking triumphs
My twice cooked porkchops with onion, mushroom, and sour cream gravy. It's a recipe I learned from my mother and just added things to it just to see how it worked.
My cooking tragedies
When I tried to be all gourmet one day with some Cornish hen...poor birds...I used a recipe on here (unfortunately it didn't turn out good because of me). I spent a half an hour trying to shove lemon quarters up the birds which was hard because I didn't realize they were a teeny bit frozen in the middle so they were puckered tight! Then I had to let them cook longer because I realized they were frozen so it came out a tad dry. Next time I'll know better right?

Best Bread Machine Bread
Great recipe! Tried this when I bought my bread maker. I had tried one of the recipes in the book, with horrible results. This method makes MUCH more sense to me. Thank you for sharing.

Marinated Grilled Shrimp
Only giving it 4 stars since I just moved,and didn't have tomato sauce. Used chili sauce instead, and was great with this! More subtle flavor, but kicked it up with some cajun seasoning. Thanks for sharing!

E-Z Drop Biscuits
Gets 5 stars for the easy factor and taste combined. I prefer these types of biscuits with my sausage gravy, it seems to hold up a lot better. Was a little crumbly (which I like) but not dry. Husband also approved, will be using this one again.
