Arlene of Tennessee Line Band
About this Cook
I am a Tennessee Line Band Vocalist who loves to cook! Self-prescribed purveyor of kitchen appliances and gadgets; simply, I love to cook! Cooking Motto(s): "Family recipes are traditions of love and heritage to be highly revered and respected". "Ghirardelli Chocolate is missing from the food group charts".
My favorite things to cook
Food that smells so good while I'm cookin' that I feel full before I take the first bite! Personal concept - anywhooo... Seriously, being from New Orleans and all, I love to cook New Orleans style cuisine. Gumbo, Jambalaya, Boiled Shrimp, Fried Fish, Stuffed Mirliton - (pronounced Mel-a-tawn). New Orleans cooking is influenced by different cooking traditions such as French, Spanish and Native American and I love them all but the Italian flavors also present are a stand-out for me. Believe you me...bring on the Olive Oil, Spinach, Basil, Roasted Red Peppers, Pine Nuts and Smoked Provolone...I am a happy girl!
My cooking tragedies
"It was so wrong." I once substituted pizza sauce with ketchup, tried making a smoothie in my Ninja Blender using cantalope, added the brine from an olive jar into a stir-fry dish on high heat, doubled a fudge recipe the pot couldn't handle. "It Was So Wrong."

Easy Mayonnaise Biscuits
Easy-Fast-Yummy! Doubled recipe, used reduced fat Hellman's and added an 1/8 cup milk for smoothness. Thanks - Keeper!
