About this Cook
I'm just hillbilly with one of those fancy e-lectric cookstoves and a healthy love for food! I blog at
My favorite things to cook
I love making all different kinds of pasta dishes, people rave about my bread (because it is THE bread), and I make a mean filet mignon. It's really easy, I know, but it impresses the heck out of my husband.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My grandmother died and took all the real traditions with her, unfortunately. My father and mother are both--um, trying to be polite here--not cooks. So I'm trying to make new traditions for the next generation to carry on.

Jamie's Cranberry Spinach Salad
I didn't like the dressing at all, especially the ridiculous amount of sugar. The salad ingredients are good, though, so I'd just keep everything but the dressing. Make a balsamic dressing to put over it instead using 1/4 cup each balsamic vinegar and olive oil, a pinch of salt, and a teaspoon of sugar. The almonds and the sesame seeds are a nice touch.

Walnut-Tarragon Chicken Tenders
Good, but needs a little something, so I made a milk gravy from the frying oil and the little bit of flour mixture that was left. Y'all. Do that. Seriously.

Apricot Chicken with Balsamic Vinegar
Pretty good as written, but I left out the optional onions. I'm glad, because they had no business in this recipe. Needed a little something, so the second time I added some cayenne pepper, used skinless bone-in chicken, and baked in the oven @ 350, basting occasionally. Cover with foil to keep the sauce from burning. My hubby likes to buy different kinds of balsamic vinegar, so I used some that had figs in it. That was awesome.
