About this Cook
I spent many years in the business as a server, then learned how to cook from a wonderful chef. I love to cook and eat so much I had to have a lap-band!
My favorite things to cook
My fried chicken is the best I've ever had! I also make a mean chicken marsala!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I come from a huge German family from KY so I grew up on a mix of fried chicken, gravy and sauerkraut.
My cooking triumphs
My lasagna and homemade suace was better than my husband Sicillian grandmaother's - but don't tell her that.
My cooking tragedies
The first time I tried my chicken marsalla recipe on the in-laws - I'll NEVER live that one down!!!

Bourbon Pecan Chicken
I have never in my life made something so absolutely amazing!!! I followed the advice of others and blended the pecans and bread crumbs in my magic bullet. Then coated the chicken with flour then egg white before breading it. After frying it on each side for 3 minuets I finished it in the oven ay 375 for 20 minutes. PERFECT. I couldn't believe how simple and easy this was! This is my new ace in the hole!!! Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU!!!!

Dessert Crepes
Excellent and so easy to prepare. I added a tsp. of vanilla as others have suggested. Fantastic! Filled with raspberry preserves and topped with a simple chocolate ganache.
