About this Cook
I've lived in Texas my entire life so I'm spoiled by Tex-Mex and BBQ. I also like "southern food" but I do not like to fry anything in my house.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake - cupcakes and cake balls are my favorite things to make. I like making grown-up grilled cheese sandwiches by playing with the ingredients. I like quick and easy above all else.

Easy Cheesy Chicken I
After reading quite a few reviews,I did make a couple of changes to fit my tastes. I only used 2 chicken breasts since it's just me and my husband. I did 1 can of cream of chicken, 1 can of cream of cheddar and skipped the mushroom. I added 1 packet of Italian Dressing seasoning, garlic powder, and a few other herbs. I didn't add additional salt and I think that was the right decision for me. I put it on low for 9 hours while I went to work. My chicken wasn't all the way thawed when I put it in but it turned out so tender, not over cooked at all. Once I got home, I boiled some brown rice, cooked some frozen broccoli, and then threw it all together. The tender chicken just shredded while stirring it all together. A couple bites in, my husband said it was salty, which I agreed. Lightbulb went off, oh yeah, sour cream! I do think that helped cut the salt taste. Overall, I think this recipe is fine. Nothing that wowed me, nothing that was gross, just fine.

Rainbow Pasta Salad I
I made this for the first time for a get together today. I removed the olives because my husband won't eat them and added halved cherub tomatoes instead. I would have preferred olives but it was great. I used Newmans Own Family Tradition Italian Dressing which I liked. I received a lot of compliments and will make it again. Oh, I also added some chopped carrots that added some nice crunch. I'll definitely be having more in a bit for a yummy snack

Grilled Cheese Sandwich
So simple, so easy, so perfect. This recipe nailed the art of making a grilled cheese in a non-stick pan.
