I have been married for 13 years to Ray my fabulous husband. I am a professional chef who dabbles in gourmet at home but does southern cooking at work. I have 3 kids and 1 bad cat. I will try anything once and have recently developed an affinity for sushi!
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook delicious things! LOL
My husband swears that everything I touch turns to culinary gold! I think not! It took a lot of trial and error to get here!
My favorite family cooking traditions
We have a medium family with 2 teenager boys and a pre-teen girl so I cook lots of comfort foods and casseroles. I love to stir fry and Italian cooking is my favorite genre! My mom is an excellent cook who, honestly, started me cooking to help her when she worked in the evenings. I loved to see the looks on people's faces when they took that first bite and I got addicted!
My cooking triumphs
Broccoli Shrimp Alfredo, Roasted Red Pepper Cream Sauce with Cheese Ravioli and Tuscan Grilled Chicken, Oven Beef Stew, Beef Stroganoff, Chicken and Stuffing Bake, Red Beans and Rice, Banana Cream Pie, Coconut Cream Pie, Garlic Grilled Steak, Spinach Dip in Bread Bowl, Beanie Weenies, Roasted Chicken with winter vegetables, Salmon Cakes, BBQ Chicken, Slow Cooker BBQ Pork, Marinated Pork Loin, Meatloaf with Roasted Garlic Potatoes
My cooking tragedies
