Little ol me.
About this Cook
I'm a 22 year old Texan gal, happily married to the man of my dreams and mother to a beautiful baby girl. My husband is in the Army and is currently deployed to Iraq :(. So in the mean time, I live with my Mom and enjoy cooking for us girls!
My favorite things to cook
I do a lot of baking, simply because it is what I am most comfortable with. I love making pastas and desserts and salads. But I'm trying to branch out and learn new dishes!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My Mom makes one mean chicken fried steak and the most amazing brown gravy. I'm still trying to learn from her, she's the best!
My cooking triumphs
I cooked my first Portobello today and I'm so excited! I was always to scared to attempt cooking mushroom, but it turned out great!
My cooking tragedies
Trying to make brown gravy like my ended up looking like brown paste and had absolutely no flavor. And my poor husband ate it up with a smile so I wouldn't feel as bad, haha.

Easy Meatloaf
My husband loved the recipe exactly as is, I'm going to have to make a few modifications next time I make it for me to enjoy it. I'll only use half an onion, chop it very finely, and saute it in some butter first. The onions were a bit overwhelming to me. The moisture of the meatloaf was really great though! The loaf needs a little more seasoning...will probably add some worcestershire and garlic powder and double to sauce on top. Husband suggested mixing some of the sauce in with the meatloaf mixture.

Chicken Enchiladas V
AMAZING, with some modifications. Added all of the sour cream/soup mixture to the chicken mixture to stuff the enchiladas with. The chicken/onions mixture alone was way too dry without it. I then topped the enchiladas with a mixture of 1 can red enchilada sauce + 1 can cream of mushroom stirred together then poured on top. Sprinkled Tony's seasoning all over the top for a little kick, plus a little mozzerella cheese on top with the cheddar cheese. Me & hubby think these are the best enchiladas ever!
