About this Cook
I am willing to experiment in the kitchen and enjoy trying new cuisines!
My favorite things to cook
I enjoy cooking soul food and American comfort foods.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Soul food, especially at Thanksgiving and Christmas. My mom makes the best cornbread stuffing and my sister make the best macaroni and cheese.
My cooking triumphs
Making a set of three appetizers with phyllo. The first one was spinach and ricotta with italian herbs purses, caramalized onion with red bell pepper cigars and sharp cheddar cheese triangles with a raspberry sauce.
My cooking tragedies
I probably have one about every three months or so. When I am tired or feeling rushed is when I usually make horrible mistakes!!

Sweet Dinner Rolls
Followed the recipe exactly, except that I melted the butter and brused with butter after the second rise before they went into the oven. Fresh out of the oven, these are heavenly, especially with a light spread of butter. The next morning, I used them to make egg and cheese sandwiches and they were even better. The next time, I'll add some vital wheat gluten to make them even lighter and fluffier!! Highly recommended, this one will be added to my recipe box

Honey Oatmeal Bread II
Instead of 2 tablespoons of butter, I used the whole stick for the recipe. I also used some 10 grain cereal, prepared according to the package directions and allowed to cool while the oatmeal mixture soaked, used 1/3 whole wheat bread flour....also, i crused some oats and the ten grain cereal and used egg wash to help it stick to the bread. Even with all those changes, my friends and family swear that it is the best bread they've every tasted! this will be my go-to recipe (with my changes incorporated) for eternity! Thanks Leslie

Oatmeal Sourdough Rolls
these rolls are amazing....i made them in the kitchenaid stand mixer, added all the ingredients with the dough hook. Had to add more flour as mentioned by the other reviewers when making in the stand mixer. Very simple, added to mixing bowl, set on low, added additional flour as needed, oiled mixer bowl, covered with plastic wrap allowed to rise for an hour or so, kneeded a few times, formed into rolls and placed on oiled baking sheet, covered with damp kitchen towel and allowed to rise for an additional hour and then baked according to directions! I will be making this again!!!
