About this Cook
I am a personal chef. I shop & prepare meals for my clients in their homes. It's very gratifying to feed a busy family after their long days at work & school! I also hold cooking camps for the kids, that culminate in dinner prepared for their parents!
My favorite things to cook
I am a true Southern Cook! Fried Okra, steamed squash, and country-fried steak are my specialties. I also love to bake desserts such as pound cake & brownies.
My favorite family cooking traditions
When my children were small, we would head to the local farmers' market early in the day. We loved purusing all the fresh fruits & vegetables. Then we would spend time together shelling peas, shucking corn, etc. Those were the best meals ever!
My cooking triumphs
My sister-in-law & I created a chicken marinade one night that was awesome. Unfortunately, we can't seem to duplicate it!
My cooking tragedies
All those pound cakes that wouldn't come clean from the pans... thank heavens for the new sprays with flour!

Shrimp Scampi Bake
I will never make another scampi recipe again- it's that good! I used fresh NC shrimp. Added a healthy dollop of white wine, and only baked for 8 minutes. The stated cooking time is WAY too long! I basted them once during baking. As for that lovely, delicious sauce, I recommend some crusty bread to soak up every last drop... otherwise, you'll be tempted to lick your plate. Ten stars if I could.

Alaska Salmon Bake with Pecan Crunch Coating
This is a keeper for us! I made as posted, except I let the fish marinate in the honey butter for about an hour, and used Panko instead of bread crumbs. Delicious! Don't be shy with the sauce and the topping, the more the better!!

Mushrooms with a Soy Sauce Glaze
These mushrooms are delicious! I used baby portobellas, and low sodium soy sauce. We will enjoy these often.
