To me “simple” cooking is a good hamburger or baked chicken with thyme or maybe a steaming bowl of chili. When I think of what is normal American food it makes me wonder what’s “normal” eating in other countries. I enlisted the help of Allrecipes, since they have entire food sites dedicated… MORE

It’s hot. You don’t want to spend time in a hot kitchen cooking. You still want to invite friends over for a pool party. You can still pamper them with some homemade goodness like I did here by making homemade pimento cheese, chicken cranberry salad, Greek pasta salad and serve them all in a… MORE

Exchanging hellos and getting caught up on local gossip while sipping on an old fashioned ice cream soda.You'd head to the pharmacy in the back to and… MORE

Precious and old and not even a cookbook. Looks like an insurance address book from 1969 to me. First duct taped then rubber banded together with a cake mix cookie recipe from maybe Ohio tucked into the front for some reason. I can only think it's because it was somebody's favorite recipe.… MORE

About Me
paulajeancuisine.com is my food blog where I post my simple recipes in a complicated world. I work for a commercial insurance agency, so cooking is the creative outlet that I need. I love to create my own recipes and enter an occasional cooking contest. My two grown sons grew up cooking in our kitchen, and now I enjoy cooking with my 5 year old grandson.
My favorite things to cook
Baking is my favorite thing to spend time doing. The science of baking has always fascinated me. From the time I was 12 I couldn't understand how popovers rose and kept their hollow middles and just had to see for myself by making them at 2 a.m. on a school night. I got grounded from the kitchen after that stunt.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Any holiday-my personal favorite? Halloween It wasn't until I had 2 kids of my own that I discovered how fun Halloween cooking can be!
My cooking triumphs
-Cooking among professional chefs in The 2013 World Food Championship -Representing Bob's Red Mill in Scotland in the World Porridge Making Competition -Winning Bob's Red Mill Spar for the Spurtle in 2013 -Appetizer Host for Kraft's Real Women of Philadelphia contest for season -Making cooking videos for Kraft as contracted.
My cooking tragedies
I've had plenty-from burning toast to ruining an expensive piece of steak, if you cook enough, tragedies are bound to happen. Just like in life, live and learn.
