About this Cook
Born in Cajun Louisiana to parents from Arkansas. Food influences from those areas plus Mid-West, Memphis, Italy, Western USA where I've either lived or traveled. Also love to experiment in the kitchen!
My favorite things to cook
Creative & new things, but also favorites from the past. I like all categories: appetizers, main dishes,veggies, baked goods.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My dear mother over-cooked many things probably due to her Southern tradition of cooking veggies a long time to soften them. Later, I learned that not ALL vegetables require long cook times & many taste better just slightly cooked. My mother-in-law is an excellent Southern cook & I learned some from her.
My cooking triumphs
Who knows? I've been cooking a long time and there've been many triumphs and failures since I like to experiment. Some requested items are Granny's Pound Cake -my mother-in-law's, Chinese Coleslaw, Fresh Apple Cake - we have a Granny Smith tree, Jambalaya, Calico Baked Beans, oh, & Leche Quemada -an updated microwave version of the Mexican candy.
My cooking tragedies
Too many to name! Experimentation does have it's rewards AND it's failures.

Easy Apple Coffee Cake
I'm writing just to say what finally worked for me to keep this from sticking to pan & cracking. Let pan cool on a rack for ONLY 10-15 minutes. Then as precaution, I also went around edges & middle (Bundt pan). No cracks or sticking! Because I changed this, the rating doesn't accurately depict the original recipe. I used cream cheese instead of sour cream, cheesecake instant pudding instead of vanilla, used 4 c. of apple chunks & stirred them in & added 1 t. vanilla.

Cinnamon Orange Turkey Scaloppini
5* with suggestions of viewers doubling the juices & 5* because it's easy & tasty. I also pounded the cutlets thinner. Watch near end so it doesn't burn. I've made twice & both times used orange juice concentrate: 1/2 c. concentrate to 1/2 c. water = 1 c.& 2 T. lemon juice.

Simple Roasted Butternut Squash
Yes, it's simple & very good. I did think it needed a bit more garlic than my original sprinkling of garlic powder which I substituted for the fresh garlic. You might also want to check to see if it's done in 20 minutes.
