About this Cook
I began cooking as a very small child helping my grandmother in the kitchen as she made pies and cookies and have loved doing it all my life.
My favorite things to cook
I love southern cooking, it feeds the soul and the body in a way most don't. It's the epitome of Comfort foods. I am also fond of cooking anything Italian or Mexican.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Christmas time I spend weeks making cookies, fudge, and toffee to share with neighbors and co-workers, they are always demolished and usually requests for recipes follow. Its the one holiday I happily spend a good week to two weeks preparing the food for no matter how many will be attending.
My cooking triumphs
Developing my own recipes that are requested every time family visits, things like my white chocolate cheesecake, creamy chicken enchiladas, and chicken and dumplings.
My cooking tragedies
When I was 9 I was to cook rice for our family meal, I asked my dad how much too cook and he said 1 serving per person. My mind translated that to 1 cup of uncooked rice per person, we had 5 people in our family. I filled every pot with rice by the time it was all cooked and was eating rice for breakfast for a long time.

White Cheese Chicken Lasagna
I am giving this 2 stars as there were a couple of people in my house that loved this recipe, the rest asked why I didn't just make my lasagna. I wasn't impressed at all. I followed it exact, something I rarely do and probably shouldn't have this time. I found it to be too bland, and adding the cheese into the sauce was a horrible choice in my opinion,but the sauce itself needed a lot of help in the flavor department, perhaps some sauteed bell peppers would have helped there as well as fresh herbs. I found it lacking texturally as well, the mouth feel completely turned me off, I couldn't distinguish the layers I expect in a lasagna. Maybe with more veggies in the layers to give it some bite and some variety in flavor would improve it greatly, but over all just found this to be a disappointment and will not be making it again.

Creamy Rice, Chicken and Spinach Dinner
This is a great recipe base with lots of options for customizing it. I didn't have spinach or roasted red pepper Italian dressing. Substituted regular Italian dressing and sauteed red bell peppers, onions, and some extra garlic in it. Added some leftover cubed cooked chicken breasts and let it all cook together for about 3 minutes. My boys who despise anything rice, ate this up with no complaints even asked for seconds.

Yummy Sweet Potato Casserole
This was alright, not sensational, I felt there was something missing in it, as it was a bit bland. Next time I think I will double the topping on it and add brown sugar instead of white and maybe cinnamon and nutmeg to the sweet potato mixture. It was probably the most disappointing dish on the table at Thanksgiving, but that said it was disappointing when compared to a spread of dishes that everyone raved about, this had to be my most successful Thanksgiving yet as there wasn't a single dish that anyone thought wasn't good.
