About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook desserts! Or maybe I just really like to eat them!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love Christmas time and having days spent in the kitchen. All the family comes in town from all over the country and we spend it around the table together.
My cooking triumphs
Having my whole family over for Christmas. I am the baby of the family (even though I'm already 28), and so it was a big deal to have everyone over and it not be a flop! I fed 32 people and everyone ate til they were stuffed and happy. Success!
My cooking tragedies
Worst experience involved my 8 yr old and I attempting to make my grandma's buttermilk pie. Needless to say we were distracted and forgot to add the buttermilk, then to top it off when I was pulling it out of the oven I lost my grip and flipped it upside down on the oven door. Big gloppy mess on the floor and door and down in the oven drawer! But on the bright side my two dogs were very happy and it is something my son will never forget! We ended up laughing til we cried and we bonded, so what more could I ask for??

Garlic Cheddar Chicken
Made this tonight and it was a big hit with my family!! I thawed out frozen chicken breast and cut them in half and put them in the oven for about 35 mins. Put extra oregano and loved it!!

Campbell's Kitchen Creamy Chicken Enchiladas
Fixed this last night and my family loved it! I put my pace picante sauce in the blender first b/c my kiddos don't like chunks. I made extra sauce and covered the bottom of the dish first. My hubby said these are better than the restaurants.. and we live in Texas where Mexican food is plentiful!!
