About this Cook
I'm a mom who never thought she'd try to become a domestic goddess! I'm getting better every day.
My favorite things to cook
(Southern) breakfast, all desserts, pizza, pasta, and anything that combines lean meats and fresh veggies.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I'm a big fan of making desserts at Christmas with my family and waking up to make breakfast with my husband or parents. I love budgeting and cooking.
My cooking triumphs
Made my own cheese. Poached an egg perfectly. Made almost all of our Thanksgiving dinner in my tiny kitchen. Cooked up tons of homemade Christmas presents. Made homemade candy canes... that my toddler shattered. Hosted the dessert part of a progressive dinner party.
My cooking tragedies
I tried to make lentil soup with water, bits of ham, salt, pepper, and cooking it for only 15 minutes. When I was very young, I once used a half cup of baking soda to make cookies. They were wretched. Made delicious homemade candy canes... that my toddler shattered.

Baked Ziti with Cheese
We all cried with delight at this dish. I thought it might be dull. But it was amazing. We stuffed ourselves! Will make again!

White Fiber Mini Shells with Cherry Tomatoes, Basil and Parmigiano-Reggiano Cheese
This wasn't filling to me at all. The flavor was a little mild. I think it would have been better had I chilled it as reviewers suggested.

White Chicken Chili with Salsa Verde
This was pretty good. Liked the addition of mushrooms. Added half and half instead of evaporated milk. Preferred more spices than was called for.
