Okay so this evening I fixed bowties and italian sausage for one of the kids and her kids. It involves sweet italian sausage, bowtie pasta, and bell peppers. Over time I've tweaked it a little bit, adding sauted onions, and crushed tomatoes. They liked it, well the adults and… MORE

I just got my supporting membership! I'm so happy. Okay so my main reason for joining is to get some more ideas. I have a wonderful fiance who is used to eating only underseasoned (unless you count tons of salt) traditional meat and potatoes. Lately I've been able to get him on my track of… MORE

About Me
I love to cook and my first cooking memory is of watching the hamburgers for my mother while she changed my little brother when I was 5.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake and cook everything! I would rather make my puddings from scratch than ever open a box!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Stirring the chocolate gravy and making drop biscuits on special mornings when the whole family was home....my favorite breakfast when I was a child biscuits and chocolate gravy!my mama made the best chocolate gravy!
My cooking triumphs
My first Christmas without my mother supervising, I was the lead cook and everything turned out great! From cocktails (chocolate martinis) to the turkey everything was perfect!
My cooking tragedies
The first time I tried to make sushi, my sushi rice was still crunchy.... I had to start all over again and thankfully the second round was better than the first, and we had sushi for weeks until I mastered the sushi roll!
