About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
I enjoy finding new dinner recipes to share with family and friends. Anything with lots of flavor. I'm not a fan of the basic meat and potatoes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Since my youngest son was old enough to stand on a chair in the kitchen with me, we've made Christmas cookies together. He's now 14 and still helps me with the Christmas baking.
My cooking triumphs
Getting dinner on the table and seeing everyone enjoy it.
My cooking tragedies
We moved into a new house with a gas stove. I was use to electric stove. No matter what I did, my famous Thanksgiving Pumpkin Cookies fell flat. They were missed by my father in-law that year.

Award Winning Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies
Not that these cookies need another review, but I wanted to put my two cents in. Bare in mind, my chocolate chip cookies always turn out flat and over baked. These cooked PERFECTLY. I baked for exactly nine minutes on parchment lined baking sheets. The flavor is wonderful and three days later they still taste very fresh! Try them, I know you'll like them!!

Oven Baked Jambalaya
AWESOME!! Don't hesitate to make this dish. Some of the reviews say it's too time consuming. I didn't find it to be. If you're concerned about time you could use pre-cooked meats and just toss into the pot. I actually cooked my chicken in the same pot I used in the oven. Thought it might help develop richer flavors. The only things I did different from the recipe was to use brown rice and I cooked it 15 minutes longer than time stated. This one is a keeper!!

Spicy Baked Sweet Potato Fries
I made these fries last night. They were delicious!! I did my own little experiment. I took the advice of one of the other reviews and used a cooling rack over a baking sheet (greased both) for one batch and used my Pampered Chef bar stone for the other. By far, the cooling rack method won!! The fries cooked on the stone were burned. I would recommend sprinkling with brown sugar when they come out of the oven. I'm planning to make them again tonight. They made my kitchen smell so good!!!
