I have entered 5 recipes in the last 4 years, and none of them have ever been published.  Is there a trick to it?  Should I try to resubmit, or what?   One of my recipes was given to me by a woman in Italy (a working Mom) for Island Style Linguine, which I make now all the time, and I thought… MORE

I bake fairly often, but I am no expert.  I just made a bread recipe that I have made several times, but this time I made a batch that didnt rise, so I through out my yeast and started with a new Red Star yeast but this time I accidentally put the whole packet instead of the 1/2 packet … MORE

About Me
Born in Mississippi, I have very Southern roots, and living in Ok. & Tx. I certainly have a Western (Tex-Mex)flare. I have a home in the Colorado Mountains and am trying to work part ime so that I can split my time in the two places.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook everything, but working in Houston with long commutes means quick/easy meals, and when in Colo., we are 4 wheeling, fishing, hiking so I love to have fix-a-head meals that are hearty. We also have spur-of-the-moment neighbor get togethers,so it helps to have wonderful homemade things in your freezer!
My favorite family cooking traditions
For some reason, my deviled eggs are always requested, which I find perfectly strange considering I hate eggs and NEVER taste them.
My cooking triumphs
I guess if I am triumphant at anything, it would be my ability to guess ingredients, and to adjust and cut down recipes. I asked a chef for his spinach souffle recipe one time and he thought he was being funny by giving me the recipe using 40 slices of bread, 1 1/2 doz. eggs etc.....BUT I did it, and it was perfect!!
My cooking tragedies
The 1st time I made Salmon Crochettes as a new bride, my husband bragged on them but I told him I would never make them again because it took me 1.5 hours to take out all the cartilage. Even he who did not cook, knew that you left them in. I felt so stupid. I also gave a couples baby shower and served shrimp cocktail on ice, but accidently bought raw shrimp instead of cooked. In a hurry, I served it and the mother-to-be gagged and threw up.
