About this Cook
I'm a mom who loves to cook. Fortunately I have sons and a husband that like to eat! Hubby likes to cook too, and we get a little adventurous in the kitchen from time to time.
My favorite things to cook
I like to bake, the kids like to make anything that makes a mess or includes frosting or sprinkles and hubby is the reigning grill master of the neighborhood.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Living in Louisiana and other states in the South, I learned a lot of 'southern' recipes that we love. Up north it's more healthy and easy food, we like it all!
My cooking triumphs
Spaghetti, Lasagna, Meatball Sandwiches...toast? (I make great toast!)My casseroles rock. And any type of dessert, anything that can be baked is great around here.
My cooking tragedies
Husband hates my macaroni and cheese...(I like it), and my attempts at Chinese Food are never good, but I will get it!

Tomato Chicken Parmesan
It was a great recipe! Definitely don't preheat the oven first if you are doing everything from the beginning. Preheat it when you start browning the chicken in the pan. This will be made in our house forever from now on...thanks!

Emily's Famous Hash Browns
awesome recipe! Thanks so much! I thought it was impossible to make decent hash browns from scratch, it's definitely not!

Pistachio Cake III
I read some of the other suggestions...used 1 box cake mix, 1 box pistachio pudding mix, 2 eggs, 1/2 cup sour cream and the same water and vegetable oil. I used about 10 drops green coloring, and added about 1/4 cup crushed pineapple and coconut flakes, because I did not have almond extract and did not want it to be "boring". Nor did I have a bundt pan! So I made it in a glass 9 X 13 and baked it about 40 minutes on 350. Frosted with the cool whip and pistachio pudding frosting someone suggested, and it was Great! I hate to review the original recipe if I changed it up, had I had any almond extract and a bundt pan I would have made it according to directions. I think it would have come out great that way too. Thanks for sharing!
