About this Cook
I am a true southerner, but souther food has never been my thing. I have made fried chicken ONCE in my entire life and just recently discovered the simple beauty of fried cube steak. I have been married for over 10 years to a mad who'd eat red meat with a side of boxed mac and cheese and mashed potatoes for every meal. We have one daughter who is 5. I am constantly trying to find new recipes to introduce healthy foods into her diet. We live in a very small town were buying ingredients for most recipes that interest me is impossible. I have to drive 40 minutes to do my shopping.
My favorite things to cook
I focus on whole foods. If the recipe calls for cream of chemical X soup or any MSG containing ingredient, FORGET IT. My daughter was 5 before she had her first corndog if that tells you anything. I love trying new recipes from around the world.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My grandmother's signature dish was chicken and dressing. In the south, that consists of a mixture of cornbread, onion, sage, hen, salt, pepper, raw eggs, and broth mixed together and baked.

Amazing Muffin Cups
These were really good. I was nervous about how the potato cup would turn out, but it was great. I didn't get to use the Johnsonville product but substituted another meat. These are good reheated in foil before school!!

Chocolate Chess Pie II
I didn't want to take the time to find my Granny's chocolate chess pie recipe, so I pulled this one up and I thought it was equally delicious! Shhhhh! Don't tell granny.

Swiss Chard with Pinto Beans and Goat Cheese
This recipe was ok. Not fabulous, but a good way to use swiss chard. I love, love, love goat cheese so I will most likely double it next time to make it a little more savory.
