About this Cook
I am a single mother raising a beautiful little girl. I work and go to school, so my schedule is pretty busy. I have been trying to make time for good, nutritious dinners (and a couple of not-so-nutritious desserts) that my daughter and I can enjoy.
My favorite things to cook
My all time favorite things to cook are chocolate chip cookies and anything with pasta.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I have a huge southern family and we have always gathered around the dinner table during the good and the bad times. We normally have potluck dinners and everyone brings their best dishes. I have always wanted to contribute a great dish but was never sure of my culinary skills, especially in comparison to other family members. As some of the members begin to get older, it is becoming time for the younger generation to participate in our dinners...but not without a little practice.
My cooking triumphs
My first attempt at anything homemade was a peanut butter cookie recipe. It came out great and I could barely believe I made something that was edible. Needless to say, that sparked my interest in cooking and baking from scratch.
My cooking tragedies
Where to begin...guacamole, curry chicken, baked potato soup, cola chicken. They are all works in progress.

Buffalo Chicken Wings II
These wings were perfect for Friday wing night! I loved the crunch of the skin (I loathe slimy chicken skin). I coated 1/2 the wings in a bottled wing sauce and the other in BBQ sauce. I completed the dish with french fries, celery, and ranch dressing. Everyone is looking forward to the next wing night!

Soft and Chewy Peanut Butter Cookies
I just finished making these cookies and they are soft and chewy. I followed the recipe exactly as written. After rolling the dough balls, I coated them with sugar and baked them for 20 minutes. This is a definite keeper!!!

Seasoned Turkey Burgers
This was my first time experimenting with ground turkey. It was a pretty easy recipe to follow. My burgers were a tad dry. I would recommend this recipe to my friends. I'll continue to play around with it.
