Where do I start? I think the biggest Aha moment I have is that when I went into my pantry and really took notice, I had just about everything in their product line! Seriously, My absolute favorite product is their slow cooker liners (which I have 3 boxes of right this minute), but I have the… MORE

About this Cook
I love to cook and entertain. Nothing makes me happier than having a house full of friends and family. To me good food and good company go hand in hand. When people are enjoying the food that I made, it warms my soul.
My favorite things to cook
This is a tough one...I love to cook most everything. I am most interested in mediterranean cooking, but Thai cooking is also something I enjoy. I also love to grill and of course, I love good old down home southern cooking.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My absolute favorite tradition is cooking the turkey and all of the fixin's for Thanksgiving. I alternate the turkey from year to year, switching between 2 different recipes, but the sides are pretty much the regular traditional stuff. I do, however, try to .lighten up the recipes whenever possible
My cooking triumphs
My triumphs happen when the people I am cooking for ask for seconds or when they ask me for the recipe! Nothing makes me happier than seeing people enjoying my food. For me, cooking = love!
My cooking tragedies
I recently made a dish that was simply awful! I purchase a rack of lamb from the grocery store that was, well let's just say, past it's prime! The entire house filled up with a VERY rancid smell that even the neighborhood dogs crossed the street to avoid walking past my house! I ended up throwing the entire thing out. It doesn't happen to me as a rule because there is always something you can do to make it come out alright. Not this time though. It was a disaster! Rancid meat is just that! The next time I was in that store, I mentioned it to the meat manager. I still had my receipt, but the product and it's packaging were long gone. He made it right and gave me a new one. I will always buy my meat from him from now on!

Easy Southern Fried Green Tomatoes
Fantastic recipe although I didn't use any cornmeal, instead, I used Panko crumbs. I find that the cornmeal gives it a heavier taste and holds more oil than panko crumbs do. I also gave them a quick spin in the blender to make them a bit finer. It worked like a charm. I added some cayenne pepper to the flour and left the salt out until the minute I took them out of the pan. I placed them on a rack on a rimmed baking sheet so that the air could circulate around them and put them into a preheated oven of 275F while I cooked off the rest of them. WOW! They are AMAZING and were perfectly browned AND not greasy AT ALL! Great recipe!

Southern Pimento Cheese
Just made this and already I'm a fan! I did add in the dry mustard and the Worcestershire sauce. It is so good! I can't wait to see how it tastes tomorrow after it has the chance to set for a while!

Irish Lamb Stew
I had a couple of lamb shoulder chops leftover from another night's dinner and decided to make this recipe work with Already cooked lamb. I made the bacon and used the fat to make a roux then added the cooked lamb that I had cut into bite sized pieces along with the vegetables. I let it simmer for about 45 minutes which was perfect for the vegetables to cook through and still have a bit of crunch to them. I also added in a beer because I really like that flavor profile for an Irish Stew. AMAZING!
