About this Cook
I live in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains of Asheville, NC. I have been dancing all my life and own a dance studio in the South Asheville area. What makes my dance studio unique is that we specialize in Clogging - the official state dance of North Carolina! Good thing I dance all the time, because I sure do love to cook! :)
My favorite things to cook
Baking is my favorite, especially desserts such as cakes and cookies, and I also love to bake all sorts of breads from scratch- challah, rolls, loaves, cornbread, etc. I also enjoy making gourmet desserts such as creme brulee and tiramisu and I also love to cook anything Italian!
My cooking triumphs
Perfect Creme Brulee on the first try! Figured out how to make Olive Garden bread sticks exactly like the restaurant!
My cooking tragedies
Banana bread... I forgot to add the eggs. Big gooey mess in the oven.

Chicken Pot Pie IX
Great recipe, although the sauce needs a little umph. I added more salt and pepper, minced garlic and some poultry seasoning. I also used quail instead of chicken and that worked out great.

Roasted Brussels Sprouts
The best way to eat brussel sprouts! I roast these in a glass dish in the oven on 375 for 20 minutes, turn the brussel sprouts every 6 or 7 minutes. Must add some minced garlic too. So yummy and healthy!

Fish in Foil
This recipe is soooooo good! My boyfriend absolutely loves this I fix it for him all the time! This is so quick and easy! I do leave the jalapeƱos off my trout though. That just means extra for him! ;)

Something about the grill's heat brings out the best flavor in the simplest chicken recipe.
