About this Cook
I live in Dallas, Texas. I have a wonderful boyfriend named Kevin. We love to cook, eat and drink. He's a great cook and bartender. We also love to go out to all the great places Dallas has to offer.
My favorite things to cook
I love to make casseroles, some baked goods, Mexican foods and LOTS of Pasta dishes. YUM!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Not many these days since my grandparents have passed. I used to love the Italian and Czech dishes they made. Also miss my grandmother's bisquits and gravy she always made when I visited her and my grandpa's wonderful steak and baked potatos.
My cooking triumphs
I made a fabulous carrot cake from I made it for guests and they were floored. I felt so proud, I know it was just a carrot cake but it was beautiful and good! I made a great brunch for the recovery dinner after my brother in law's 50th birthday too which was well received. Because I love to cook so much I've had lots of success lately, and that gives me more confidence in the kitchen.
My cooking tragedies
When I was a teenager I tried to make mashed potatos. They came out as cold potato soup. I guess I didn't know I had to heat the milk and butter and I poured it in too fast. I learned my mistake and now make fabulous mashed potatos.

Sweet Pork Slow Cooker Chili
Absolutely delicious chili but I recommend adding crushed red pepper and/or cayenne pepper for heat. We added both because at first taste we thought it was missing something and the heat was it. Highly recommend this recipe. Different but terrific!

Crustless Cranberry Pie
Are you kidding me? This has to be one of the easiest and yummiest recipes on this site. I used maybe 3 cups of frozen cranberries I had in my freezer, but used a package of slivered almonds because it's what I had in the pantry. Also took another reviewer's advice and added a half vanilla extract and fourth almond. It was so good hot and room temperature. Everyone must make this it ROCKS.

Tater Tot Taco Casserole
This recipe is definitely a hit. I know some people might turn their noses up at tater tot casserole but seriously it should be tried at least once. I made this a few months ago, added some green chiles as others did and wow was it good. I think I will make it again this week with ground chicken or turkey to change it up a little bit. Being from Texas I love the Mexican flavors that were added to it, makes it so much better. Great recipe, thanks!
