My love for hot boiled peanuts is one that started at a young age. If you are from the south, you know that from spring until fall, hot boiled peanuts are something you can buy just driving down the road. Not in the city, but get out on any little back road and you are bound to run into a li MORE

Sadly, I am the child of a mother who didn’t allow children in the kitchen when she cooked. As a result, I made meals when my children were still living at home, but never really enjoyed it. I always have loved to bake and am quite good at it. My love for baking started with my first Easy Ba MORE

About Me
I've never really been a happy cooker, I prefer to eat out. When I do cook I get frazzled easily. I have cooked several of the recipes from this website and have found most delicious and the feedback very helpful. I am trying to develop an interest. I'm jealous of all of you who seem to really love to cook and are at such ease in the kitchen. UPDATE: It's been a year since I originally input the prior information. I am now much more at ease in the kitchen and rarely grumpy when cooking. This site is responsible for the new me. I am changing my cooking level today to intermediate. Everyone on AR has helped me achieve my new level and I look forward to learning and cooking more. I am going to keep working on my skills and hopefully be half as good as most of the members on this site. I love AR and the confidence and education I have received from everyone here.
My favorite things to cook
Simple but very tasty. I love chicken.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I go all out on Thanksgiving and pull out all my cooking skills for the one day. My family travels from all over the States to come. I have to admit.... I'm usually very grumpy by the time the meal is served because of my unease in the kitchen.
My cooking triumphs
Finding a wonderful chicken casserole that the entire family loves!
My cooking tragedies
I burn bread almost every time I make it! UPDATE: I'm still burning the darn bread. I don't get it...
