About this Cook
My name is Kelly. I am a blessed wife of the most incredible man I know, and the mother of a 1 year old that keeps me guessing. I enjoy the crazy, busy, radical, ever changing mystery of tomorrow. I grew up in a small town and ate meat and potatoes for every meal. Dinner was always tasty yet boring. It wasn't until I moved away for a long while and discovered worlds of food and wine that I realized breakfast, lunch, and dinner could consist of so much more! (Of course I still LOVE my meat 'n taters!) This knowledge and curiosity burns me- as I moved back to a small town and believe that I am now the only resident who has ever enjoyed such (simple!) pleasures as warm brie and chardonnay, vietnamese pho, collard greens and fried okra. I have few prejudices when it comes to food. I enjoy it all- so long as it's cooked!
My favorite things to cook
I absolutely enjoy cooking/baking/grilling anything. I love trying new recipes, making one of my own come to life, or attempting to perfectly duplicate one of my mother's.
My favorite family cooking traditions
The only tradition I can think of is making popcorn balls with my Grandmother every December. :)
My cooking triumphs
Inspired by a vegitarian I once worked with, I spent a week making various veggie-only meals and it was absolutely incredible. It didn't quite inspire me to kick the meat habit though :)
My cooking tragedies
Far, far too many to list here! Success is not without failure!

Buttermilk Pie Crust
This pie crust was super easy and very forgiving. It stuck a little to the parchment, but I will chill it longer next time to take care of that. Not to mention it is ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS! Thanks for sharing!

Hot Chocolate Mix II
Made this twice. As written, and then with the addition of chocolate pudding and a pinch of salt. I found it too watery both ways, but better tasting with the pudding. Won't make this particular recipe again though.
