About this Cook
I have a great job which allows me to travel (and eat!) but my best foodie moments are triumphs in my Florida kitchen. Recently moved here from Georgia, so my heart is in Southern food. I also love Greek, Italian, Japanese, ...ok. All food! This is my favorite website. Love your recipes, reviews, videos and tips.
My favorite things to cook
Chicken and dumplings (from scratch), all kinds of soups and stews, fish, fresh bread, kids' dishes, slow cooker meals.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Fried chicken, red velvet cake, sweet potato souffle, turkey and dressing, slow cooked pot roast, biscuits and gravy, cornbread, soup beans, cheesy potato soup.
My cooking triumphs
Cranberry stuffed pork roast to complete a Thanksgiving Feast at a table with which Martha Stewart would have been pleased! I also mastered homemade buttermilk biscuits with sawmill gravy after years of practice runs.
My cooking tragedies
Too many to mention! ! Of course, I cooked my first turkey with the bag of giblets still inside, and as a real rookie, tried to cook frozen chicken breasts without thawing!

Stuffed Peppers
This is a great basic recipe! Not sure what all the back and forth about boiling, covering, etc. in the reviews is about. I followed the prep/cooking instructions, and I highly recommend you season to your personal taste. The instructions are clear and make a really good finished product. I had fun reading all the Reviews while they were in the oven. I changed the spices up, added a little heat, but that's a normal part of being a home cook. If you don't already know, the easiest way to remove ribs is to scrape with a spoon. Oh, and I had six large green bell peppers and this was sufficient to fill. They aren't super saucy, but they're moist and meaty as written. BDEGER, thanks for sharing! Looks like a lot of people have tried and enjoyed these. Also a very budget friendly meal. There are some good reviewer tips about preparing ahead to make prep even easier. Try and enjoy!

Broiled Lobster Tails
Easy and great! Check em every few minutes (after the initial 5) and you can clearly see them go opaque. I use real butter, if available, and sprinkle with a little old bay. I cut the shell and the meat to season through and so I can check for temperature. Recipe is easily adaptable to any size tail, just check them! The shell might get a bit dark, but that's o.k! Thanks, Skygretch!

Japanese Onion Soup
Great soup! Very similar to Japanese restaurant style. I used better than boullion and sliced button mushrooms. I think the pre-made fried onion rings are great in this as well. Important to allow the veggies to simmer and flavor the broth. You can also add dried noodles to the simmering broth for a heartier soup, but the beauty of this is the simplicity of clear soup. Loved it!!!!!
