About this Cook
I am a wife and mother of two little ladies, work full time, and have too many interests to list.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook comfort foods, which for me usually means southern cookin'. I also love many different ethnic foods and like to find and try authentic dishes. Some of my favorites include Indian, Korean, Japanese, Thai, and Greek. I prefer using fresh ingredients over dried, canned, packaged, etc. whenever possible. I'm known for serving some type of salad with just about every meal!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Christmas has always been a big deal for my family and I enjoy sharing things from my childhood with my own family. I don't worry about calories or fat during the holidays and enjoy spending hours in the kitchen baking and whipping up holiday treats, just like my parents did.
My cooking triumphs
I have mastered several dishes that I am very proud of and my family and friends often ask for: Korean night, where I serve yakimandu, bulgogi with rice, and a variety of kimchi. I am always asked to bring my potato salad to potlucks, and I'm proud to say that it is almost as good as my mother's recipe. My husband raves about my Thanksgiving dressing. And of course my Greek Salad!
My cooking tragedies
Ugh. I cannot make a roast pork tenderloin to save my life. It always comes out dry. My father always made the best pork roast every year at Easter, but I just can't seem to get it right...

The Best Bean and Ham Soup
Very tasty! Not the bland ham and navy beans I remember from my youth... Served with cornbread muffins for dinner and was happy to have leftovers for lunch the next day ;) Great way to use Easter ham leftovers!

Chicken Florentine Casserole
My family LOVED this! Has a wonderfully rich flavor and is so easy to throw together! I used chicken tenders, since that's what I had on hand, and seasoned with a bit of Italian seasoning before baking. I couldn't see using canned spinach. I used fresh baby spinach. FANTASTIC over whole wheat farfalle pasta. I'll work this recipe into the regular rotation! Thanks BRYAN!

Smothered Green Beans
Very tasty! In the future, I will remove the bacon and all but a teaspoon of the drippings from the pan and return the bacon once the green beans are nearly finished. prefer a bit of crispness to the bacon. I may even reduce the bacon by a couple of strips. This dish WAS quite bacon-y. I will definitely make this again, though! Went wonderfully with roast beef!
