About this Cook
My cooking tragedies
I tried to poison my new husband with picture perfect southern fried chicken. Back story I was newly married, eager to impress my husband with delicious meals, just like the ones my mom made. Unfortunately, I only learned the basics of cooking, mostly baking because my teenage plan was to marry old money rich & dine out at 5 star establishments most night (sad but true), until I fell madly in love & my new husband enlisted in the US Navy. Scratch the old money, new money or even enough cooking it was! No problem, how hard could it be? My mom was a fabulous cook & surely I could whip up a pan full of her famous southern fried chicken. EXCEPT for the fact that I didn't have a clue about oil temperatures, cooking times, etc. so I seasoned the flour/cornmeal mixture & fried up all the chicken to the same golden brown as moms. When my husband cut into the chicken, it was 100% raw. He's still telling this story 24 yrs later.

Baked Ziti I
This was fantastic. My husband took leftovers & shared with a co-worker who liked it so much he emailed his wife the recipe and asked her to make it for dinner that same night. A very good dish to make ahead of time, even the night before & then just pop in the oven, also good for a pot luck

Country-Style Steak
A lot of flavor, very tender. I took the advice of others & doubled the recipe to increase the amount of gravy. Tasted just like the southern style steak & gravy my mom used to make.
