About this Cook
I'm a single, no kids lady who likes to eat and loves to cook. I always cook big dinners on the holidays and invite folks over. I watch the Food Network incessantly and think I might switch careers one day soon. I love the Lord and strive each day to serve Him better. Working on me!
My favorite things to cook
Italian and Mexican - anything, Macaroni and Cheese, Better Than Sex Cake, Pancakes
My favorite family cooking traditions
On Thanksgiving and Christmas, I cook the classic soul food dinner and all my family comes to my house whether I'm living in an apartment or house. We eat and play games and they all spend the night. My close friends, who are now family, come too.
My cooking triumphs
When I was little, I hated dressing. Well, we threw my Dad a surprise birthday party and dressing was on the menu. So I cooked it and everyone loved it and I've been eating it ever since. I still don't have a prize recipe yet, but I'm on my way.
My cooking tragedies
One Easter I didn't wash the greens before I cooked them and they were gritty. Also, I always burn beans when I cook them

Shrimp and Andouille Sausage with Mustard Sauce
Delicious! I had to substitute some stuff and it was still delicious! I'm sure the original is fantastic. I used chicken broth and a dash of red wine vinegar instead of wine, 1 cup heavy cream and 3 tablespoons of cream cheese (instead of the 2 cups)and plain ole French's mustard.

Apple Pie by Grandma Ople
Ok, this pie MUST be the bomb because I made it tonight with 3 cans of pie filling from the DOLLAR STORE and it was still fantastic! I used a glass pie dish and it was already too full by the time I poured the sauce in, so most of it spilled out. But the part that soaked into the crust was fantastic. I can't wait to make this again and do it right!

Okra Rice
This was delicious! Even though I used instant multigrain rice that was a little tough. With white rice, I'm sure it would be nice and fluffy. I will definitely make this again. And next time I'll probably crumble some extra cooked bacon on top when it's done for texture. Great!
