About this Cook
My mom is my cooking inspiration. Growing up, we would return from the pantry frustrated by the lack of junk food. "All we have are INGREDIENTS!" But in a flash, without exhausion, my mom would create a healthy snack or meal within minutes. She showed me that healthy cooking can be fun instead of a burden. She goes gourmet with quality ingredients or she goes shortcut with simple ingredients. Either way, its homemade and I love her cooking!!!
My favorite things to cook

My cooking tragedies
Ever see the movie Steel Magnolias? Dolly Parton quotes a recipe during one of the salon scenes and I tried it. Boy, was that ever terrible!

Fried Chicken Tenders
Wonderful! First input I have is that I used (brown) rice flour instead of all-purpose. Makes it crunchier and less goopy. Also used Panko breadcrumbs. I cut up chicken breasts I had so they were more like chicken bites than tenders and cooked quicker. I left out the cayenne pepper because of the kiddos but I'm sure my hubs would have loved it. I did make the dipping sauce even though I sadly didn't have horseradish on hand. Awesome dip! As tipped by another reviewer, I will keep this in the fridge ongoing for sandwich spread. Thanks so much for the recipe!

Butter Frosting
I was looking for a frosting recipe that didn't call for shortening. Turned out great, spreads well over cupcakes and tastes great. Thanks for the staple recipe! :)

Corn and Black Bean Salad
Awesome. I added sliced grape tomatoes and some purple onion. But only did that for personal preference. Also, I made this for a crowd of 28 and it was a breeze to make with the nifty calculator. EVERYone loved it. Thanks!
