About this Cook
First things first: I am a follower of Jesus Christ! :] I am a 22 year old woman, not yet married, and still living at home. I take care of my mom and younger sister. I do all the cooking, cleaning, driving, etc. because my mom has numerous health issues. I have been cooking since the age of four, and it has become a passion. I am southern through and through, but I have recently tried to reform our eating habits. Needless to say, this site has become a close friend in the journey to a healthier lifestyle.
My favorite things to cook
Wow, I don't know. I love to cook everything- just remember my southern roots. Italian, Chinese, Thai, Greek, Mexican, Spanish, Mediterranean, and forever growing cuisines. Breads, cookies, brownies, crockpot meals, pastas, etc. I just love to cook everything.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Hmm, I don't know that there are many cooking traditions in my family. I would like to think that I am instituting some new traditions, though. I have recently stumbled upon a keeper recipe for awesome biscuits, I am famous for my macaroni&cheese, and I can generally throw down in the kitchen. I have had plenty of experience in feeding my family and family friends- I have 18 aunts and uncles, 46 first cousins, and I stopped counting after that.
My cooking triumphs
I am a humble cook, so I feel triumphant if everyone is satisfied with a smile on their face after the meal. Some notable achievements, though: the first time I made my version of fettucine alfredo for my younger sister, the surprise red velvet cake for my mom's birthday, and the day I set out to conquer the perfect batch of Mexican rice.
My cooking tragedies
One gleaming mistake makes me lower my head in shame. I scorched an entire pot of vegetable beef soup when I was 10. And it had more than $35 worth of ingredients in it. A sad, gloomy day.

Catherine's Spicy Chicken Soup
The family loves this soup! You can omit the olive oil without effect. I never add the sour cream into the soup, but offer it as a garnish. The parsley can be subbed with cilantro if you like. It's flexible, but so good. Also, one of the cans of diced is good to sub with Hunt's chili seasoned diced tomatoes. Then you don't even need the salsa. Sooo good!

Perfect Sesame Chicken
My fiance loved it; I just thought the flavors didn't marry together completely.
