Allison's strawberry smoothie
my son's little league
About this Cook
I live in North Carolina. I'm married and have 2 children; boy and a girl. I love to read, cook, take long walks, love the fall and spring time, love art and baking.
My favorite things to cook
Soups are my favorite meal to make. I make a variety during the fall time and then freeze. So good to have for those long cold months.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanksgiving, I love the traditional turkey, homemade gravy, homemade dressing, and veggies that were hand picked, shucked, hulled and preserved for the winter, just like the Thanksgiving my mom made.
My cooking triumphs
As I said before I love soups and different kinds. I and a friend were eating potato soup one day at a restaurant. We were discussing how good the soup was and a thought came to my head "what if broccoli was added" so, later In my kitchen I made baked potato and broccoli soup!
My cooking tragedies
LOL! I remember making peanut brittle for the first time and dummy me put it in a glass pyrex dish, needless to say, it didn't get eaten 'cuz it stuck to the glass! Had to microwave it a good while to loosen it up!

Easy French Toast Casserole
Delicious! Be sure to spray the casserole dish with baking Pam. I did not use the extra sugar to go on top of the bread. I didn't use all the liquid. I think I had 1/2 cup leftover of the milk and egg mixture. I drizzled it and let the bread absorb it. Will definitely make this a staple in our house. Thank you!

Sweet Jalapeno Cornbread
We love this bread. Very moist, good texture, not dense. Adding enough jalapenos to your liking is a plus!

Chocolate Cream Pie II
I followed this recipe to a "T" except for the cool whipped topping. I used the egg whites to make meringue. The instructions for boiling did not say how long to boil. Once it started thickening I poured it into the unbaked pie crust and baked at 350 degrees for 10min. until the meringue browned. After pulling it out of the oven I noticed that it was runny like pudding. The taste was great, a lil too sweet though. I made another one and followed Jay's review and used 1 more tblsp of cornstarch. I must had over cooked it for it was chewy. I may try this recipe again but will make a few adjustments.
