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

morning coffee in the Colo. mountains
About this Cook
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.

Spaghetti Aglio e Olio
My husband is southern Italian, he has not stopped raving about this pasta. What is so wonderful about it to me, is that you can serve " as is" for a side dish, or add Chicken as a main dish. Toward the last, I added marinated artichoke hearts and roasted red peppers (from a jar) , a small can of sliced black olives and torn chicken pieces from a store bought rotisserie chicken. Wonderful dinner in no time; simple and wonderful with just bread to go with it. Do watch the video though. It helps about the roasting of the garlic. Enjoy!

Fondant Potatoes
Am I the only 3 star rating? I thought they were very good, but not so wonderful to be worth the trouble. Im wondering if you could get the same flavor with cutting thick scollops and using a 13x9 dish in the oven?

Ultimate Chocolate Dessert
How can anything this darn easy be so delicious??? So much you can do! Try leaving out the coffee, and dropping a spoonful of rasberry grenache on top. I once served this in shot glasses; thats how melt in your mouth rich it is!
