One of the activities for November is to write a blog about the Best Thanksgiving Ever. I've waited to the last possible moment to write this. I really had to take the time to think about this. For the past 10 years holidays have been celebrated with just myself, my husband and my daughter.… MORE

About this Cook
First time college student majoring in Culinary Arts.
My favorite things to cook
I love making soups and breads! Stuffed cabbage and chili are two more of my favorites.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Making homemade kolachys, chocolate crinkles, and sugar cookies for the holidays. We always make more than the 3 of us can eat.. but the left overs sure are good! I love my husbands glazed ham and look forward it at the holidays.
My cooking tragedies
Making macaroni and cheese and not cooking the noodles all the way. (Home Ec 7th grade) I can NOT make fried chicken.

Fiesta Chicken and Black Beans
This was delicious. The family loved it. The black bean and corn mixture really made the dish! I plan on using it for other dishes, it could be good just by itself. This is a keeper!

Vinegar Based BBQ Sauce
This is delicious! It makes the best pulled pork!!! I made this and then added it into the crock pot with some of the juices the meat was cooked in and added the meat again. I let it "talk" for about a half hour on high in the crockpot. Came out wonderful and tasty!

Cola Onion Pork Chops
Very easy to prepare. My daughter loved this and my husband thought it was "okay". I did not tell them what was in it and tried to see if they could guess. my husband especially is not so keen on trying new things. Yet, I make him a guinea pig more often than he knows. I thought it was pretty good, flavorful. Mine did come out a bit dry, the pork chops were thick and the liquid did not cover them. I figure that could account for the dryness
