The Allstars have been working with Reynolds as an AR sponsor this month, but actually I have been working with Reynolds for most of my life!  When I was learning to cook, (won't say how long ago THAT was!) Mom always had Reynolds aluminum foil around.   We didn't mess with any store brands,… MORE

About this Cook
My cooking experiences began in the 4th grade Conservation Club. Cooking and Sewing were classes for girls, and my mom agreed to teach them for me and a couple of friends. We began with a blond brownie sort of dessert. After I made it a few times, I began to experiment with the recipe. Mom was a no-recipe cook, and I do that, too, but I usually follow a new recipe the first time. Most of the time, I can tell by looking if we will like it. I have a husband, 2 sons, 1 granddaughter, and one ex-daughter-in-law. I was chosen to be an AllRecipes Allstar Ambassador in 2012, and I am so excited! I am an Allrecipes Allstar Brand Ambassador (a voluntary position) and I’m not compensated for my work with Allrecipes.com.

My favorite things to cook
My favorite thing to cook is dressing (I'm a Southern Gal) for holiday turkey. I never work from a recipe, but I just start sauteing and mixing, sampling as I go. By the time I think it's right for the oven, I've eaten a full serving of the raw mix!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I have some heirloom recipes from both my grandmothers, my mother, and other family members. When I prepare them, I am remembering time in their kitchens.
My cooking triumphs
One year, we hosted my husband's office Christmas party in our home. I did the whole dinner for 24, and it was a huge success.
My cooking tragedies
My first try at making croissants was kind of embarrassing. The croissants were a success, but the house was a disaster, and of course, the guests were already there! The recipe said to bake them in a jelly roll pan, but I used a cookie sheet. As the butter in the croissants melted, it ran off the sheet and into the hot oven, smoking up the whole house! Was my face red ...

Sausage and Shrimp Gumbo
We really liked this! I followed the recipe very closely. My only deviation was to cut the hot pepper sauce to 1/4 teaspoon, and this was enough heat for us. Though the roux took a few minutes more than the recommended time to develop its color, it provided richness and complexity that was very satisfying.

Roasted Sweet Potatoes and Vegetables With Thyme and Maple Syrup
Yum! I love roasted vegetables, and I usually don't add anything besides EVOO, salt and pepper. But these were delicious, and I followed the recipe exactly. One bite led to another, and then another! I've never had parsnips either, and the only reason I bought them was for this recipe. I'm happy to say that I will buy them again, thanks to Don! These vegetables were a welcome change from the marshmallow-topped sweet potatoes that usually grace the Thanksgiving table.

Green Beans with Warm Dijon Vinaigrette
What I like about this recipe is the zingy vinaigrette! I love green beans, so I don't want their flavor lost beneath other flavors. This dressing enlivens the flavor, and adds the crunch of almonds. Plus, it doesn't need to be served piping hot. Room temperature is just fine here, so this dish is perfect for a buffet meal. I want to do this one again!
