Hayden's 11th birthday
My two grandchildren!
About this Cook
Currently living with my youngest daughter, her boyfriend, and my granddaughter. I've worked at the same place for about 26 years, raised 3 children (all gorgeous and smart, of course), and have 2 grandchildren. I enjoy cooking and reading....and searching out new things to cook!
My favorite things to cook
I enjoy baking the most, but obviously end up cooking something for my family almost every night. I'm Southern by birth and upbringing, but don't normally like most typical "Southern" foods! I like my food to have flavor.
My cooking tragedies
I've had a carrot cake that for whatever reason turned out like a huge rubber blob and my attempt at making one of those Southern many layered cakes went badly wrong!

Campbell's Kitchen Creamy Chicken Enchiladas
I've made this recipe for years, I've never topped it with the tomatoes and green onion, since no one in my family is a big tomato fan; if I buy green onions to use, they are always bad by the time I need to use the rest of them. Everyone has their own tastes, my family loved this from day one. While married to my 2nd husband, his daughter and son-in-law LOVED it and I would make it for them any time they visited. It is pretty creamy, rich though? Not to us! My younger daughter was craving it yesterday but didn't have everything to make it, so it's our dinner tonight. It's pretty simple to make and pretty darn tasty! You can also heat it up by using a hotter salsa or picante and/or more chili powder.

Monkey Bread I
We absolutely love monkey bread in all its fattening glory. However, reading over the reviews, I notice the very first reviewer mentions NOT to use a tube pan because they are 2-piece pans! Although you CAN purchase tube pans with removable parts, the ones I choose (been baking since I was 9 and won blue ribbons for my baking) are NEVER that type! It's very sad that the child, and others, got burned. Boiling sugar causes BAD burns! Use a NORMAL tube/bundt pan, not one with removable parts and do NOT use a springform pan! We actually make this using homemade biscuit dough!

Savory Chicken Breasts
I actually used a similar recipe on here called Swiss Chicken or something. Here's how I did it: Had 4 breasts, but based on a couple of comments on the other recipe, split breasts in half thickness wise. Put into my 13 x 9 pan; mixed can of cream of chicken with some white wine (had it on hand) and milk, poured over the chicken, which I lightly sprinkled with Lawry's Seasoned Salt and pepper, covered that with several slices Swiss cheese to use it up, topped with Pepperidge Farm Herb stuffing mix and panko bread crumbs mixed with some butter. OMG! We loved it! What I'll do differently next time is use 2 cans of the soup and liquid just to have more sauce. Also, will top with the stuffing/bread crumbs then just pour the butter over. I don't like packaged foods much, but do use cream soups often, and I can tell you from someone who turns up their nose at cake mixes and many processed foods, this stuff is so, so good!
