About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
I love cooking for crowds, or for just me and the hubby, or for the family. I love cooking with my kids, and watching them learn and experiement as well.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanksgiving dinner we all make our favorite side, and mom would make the turkey!
My cooking triumphs
I learned how to make fondant this past month for a bridal shower and was so proud of myself. I may bake, but cake decorating is NOT my strong suit.
My cooking tragedies
Shortly after my baby was born I tried to make dinner for when my husband got home. I was so exhausted that I fell asleep. Lets just say he came home to a somewhat overbaked casserole, and we ordered pizza instead. I think this is the first and only time that he has flat out refused to eat a meal I have made.

Prissy's Pizza Dust
I used this only once as it was written since I don't keep seasoning mixes on hand, and normally used the individual seasonings. Both times I made this, it was almost entirely used up that same night for pizza with our family of 8.

Fried Onion Rings
This was very easy to make, and tasted very good. great way to use up onions. It was a little bland to me, so I used seasoning salt instead of plain salt for the second batch, but otherwise, this was great!
