About this Cook
Im a 24 year old woman who shares a home with my Fiance. I enjoy finding new recipes and attempting to impress him with my cooking expertise. Sometimes they fail, but you never know unless you try. I am a buisness woman so finding quick, healthy meals are difficult. I consider myself a good cook, just tired of making the same ol' things so im shopping around for new recipes that dont entail some fancy store products that I cant find.
My favorite things to cook
Of course i'm from the south, so good ol' southern food is my favorite. I love to make fried chicken, fish, maccaroni and cheese, green beans, and your typical southern (greasy and bad for you) foods. I love italian foods also and am starting to broaden my horizons.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Potato Salad! LOL
My cooking triumphs
Finding recipes that are actually awesome.
My cooking tragedies
Always forgetting that Velveeta maccaronni and cheese that you make out of the box is on the stove boiling. I tend to remember when the starchy water goes all over the stove top 8) LOL WHOOPSIE

Oven-Roasted Asparagus
I made this last night with seared sea scallops and garlic angel hair pasta. The only downfall to me was, there was too much olive oil, but that is a super easy fix. Otherwise this turned out awesome and my fiance went nuts! This is super delicious and easy!

Seared Sea Scallops
I just made these last night and my fiance loved it! I added the flour like the recipe said but just didn't add as much. At most I put a tablespoon and Half. That amount was perfect, nothing clumped up or fell off. I do know that the flour helped it sear. My only issue and this may be my own fault. My oil was WAY to hot although I read online that it should be very hot. The oil splattered every where and made a huge mess. So net time I will tone the oil down. The scallops were perfectly cooked but were a tad salty to me, although my fiance went crazy over it. So really it just depends on what you like. All in all, thise recipe was delicous, he said it was his favorite meal. I paired it with asparagus and garlic angel hair pasta.

To Die For Blueberry Muffins
So normally I am an awful baker. My fiance has been dying for blueberry muffins, so figured I would try these. I hate it when I read recipes and have no idea what its asking from me, being a beginner cook. these muffins were AWESOME! I used cinnamon sugar instead of regular cinnamon, being that i think plain cinnamon is gross. These turned out sooo good. My fiance said he loved the cinnamon sugar, that it added a nice touch. These are easy to make, just the way I like it. I didnt change anything else, it was fine as is. Thanks for the recipe!!
