#AllstarsReynolds and #MealMagicI've made 2 recipes using the Reynolds Parchment Paper and the ease of using this paper is so good.  No need for sprays or greasing.  And the fact that you can slide the paper off the cookie sheet, reline, and use the same cookie sheet over.  I've really… MORE

About this Cook
I grew up in Stockton, CA and then lived most of my 1st married life in Lemoore, CA. We raised our 3 boys (twins and one more 20 months later)up together but when the youngest son graduated from high school, I realized life was too short to stay in an unhappy, dead marriage. After 23 years, a divorce and a new life. I moved to the Biloxi, MS area and met my wonderful husband now. He is all I could ask for. We have a kitty and a camper and we love them both! She camps with us all the time. I quit my job in August, '08 and my husband is retired (again) so we are enjoying our time together. ***UPDATE*** I'm working again and really liking my job. I don't have to bring it home with me and it's 32 hours per week, which works out perfect. Very happy to report that we are very happy again with a new job!!!
My favorite things to cook
My new favorite is finding low fat, healthy recipes to try. I'm really up for anything to cook.. it's truly my hobby.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Right now I would have to say that having a fish fry is the closest thing to a tradition I have. Not healthy but it sure is good! Fried fresh caught fish, hushpuppies, okra, french fries. All deep fried and all soooo good!!
My cooking triumphs
Beef Tenderloin With Roasted Shallots from this site. I served it to guests and they could not believe that this was a home made meal. For something so easy it's the best meal I've ever made. Also feel very good about my submitted recipes. I'm not one to usually make something up but I like to follow recipes and then maybe make a few tweaks to our liking and needs.
My cooking tragedies
HAHA - It still makes me laugh. My very first meal I cooked for my 1st husband was supposed to be eggs, bacon and pancakes but the skillet I tried to use was not a non-stick. Needless to say.. we had scrambled eggs, torn up bacon, and worst of all, scrambled pancakes.

Braised Beef with Shallots and Mushrooms
I like the addition of tomatoes to a savory, beefy "stew". I like the quartered mushrooms too. I had to add quite a bit of extra beefy flavor with Magi Beef Sprinkles. Served over savory mashed potatoes and it was a hit. I did not add the vinegar or the lemon.. just sounded awful for our palate but otherwise followed the recipe. Had to refrigerate over night because of an emergency but I bet it just made it taste even better.

Cucumber Slices With Dill
This might be weird but I had 1/2 of a pretty big zucchini left over so I skinned, sliced and marinated in this mix. I cut the servings down to 2 and used one pack of Splenda for the sugar. Wowzer, what a treat I really liked the zucchini so I know I'd like the cucumber. Easy, peasy recipe. Thanks JulieK for this little gem of a recipe.

Never Bitter Lemonade
This is quite sweet so next time I'd use about 3/4 of the amount called for. Otherwise, I like this method and will be using it again when I get that hankerin' for lemonade.
