About this Cook
I am becoming a fairly good cook. I would love to cook the way my mother cooked. I am interested in starting my own small family restaurant.
My favorite things to cook
Soups and salads. I enjoy cooking chicken on the grill.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Oyster stuffing, banana nut bread and cakes.
My cooking triumphs
Getting all the foods for a thanksgiving feast on the table at the same time.
My cooking tragedies
Started smoking a turkey at midnight. It was extremely cold and the smoker wouldn't come up to temperature. I kept adding more and more charcoal and wood chips. I fell asleep, woke up to the smoker being over 500 degrees. I opened up the smoker and found a 22 lb. bird that looked like a black basketball. When I touched it with a fork, it hissed at me and deflated like a balloon losing air. Bought a fresh bird that morning and baked in the oven. Thanksgiving saved.

LC'S Sweet Potato Fries
These fries were fantastic and will go in my favorite column. I followed the advice of other reviewers and did not microwave them. After cutting in wedges I tossed them with all the other ingredients using my hands. This made it easier to coat the fries more evenly. I placed the fries on the sheet pan all facing the same direction. This makes it easier to make sure that all the fries get turned half way through baking. I baked them for 25 minutes per side. They came out perfectly cooked. I used the 50%mayo / 50% maple syrup dipping sauce found on AR adding some lemon juice to balance the sweetness. Definitely a keeper.

Kristy's Spicy Mustard
This sauce is exactly like what I've found at one of our favorite local sandwich shops on a roast beef sandwich. It is the perfect combination of sweet, tangy and not overly spicy. I absolutely love it. Thanks Kristy for sharing this simple sauce.

Angel Chicken Pasta
I was surprised at how easy and delicious this meal was. My changes were that I doubled the sauce and added mushrooms. The next time I will halve an onion pole to pole and slice and add to the mixture for an added layer of flavor and chop some fresh parsley to sprinkle on top when serving for some added freshness. Great starter recipe.
