Cooking On-The-Go With Reynolds Living in a renovated historic hotel has many plusses. For a flight attendant who is always on the go, I really don’t need a huge home. I cook in a clean, smallkitchen/laundry room  that I share with my neighbors.  One of my neighbors works as a hostess and… MORE

About this Cook
"Travel and cooking are my passions. I considered attending the Cordon Bleu, but decided I'd rather be a professional traveler who cooks for a hobby, than a professional chef who has little time to travel. I believe food. language and music are the best ways to explore culture." I'm working now as a flight attendant for a global airline. I learn as much as I can from our on-board chefs, as they have worked in the best kitchens on the planet! I'm proud to be an allrecipes Allstar this year! (2012-2013) What an honor to be part of this community! I'm looking forward to cooking with you this coming year!
My favorite things to cook
I make a great grilled cheese sandwich, but I've also mastered more difficult dishes. My cooking goal is to master artistic, delicious restaurant-style dishes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My Grandmother and I were very close. She basically raised me, and thankfully passed along her cooking skills. We enjoyed watching Rachael Ray together. One of my favorite TV chefs in Michael Smith, from Canada. He's creative and very cool.
My cooking triumphs
I've attended a cooking workshop led by a handsome and charming French man who was voted the Chef of The Year. I've also won blue and red ribbons for my baking. The newspaper featured one of my recipes after winning a blue ribbon. I was 15 years old then. The food editor wrote that I "squealed with typical teenage glee" when I found out I won. She was right. And I still squeal to this day when I'm really happy about something. I also won second prize in the Barrington Chili Cook-off about ten years ago. I'm very proud of that!
My cooking tragedies
Trying and failing is an important part of the creative process. The first pancake almost never turns out right. I've overcooked many good pieces of beef, until I bought a good meat thermometer. My first batch of cinnamon rolls turned out like little hockey pucks because I did not activate the yeast properly. I've come a long way since then.

Grandmother's Buttermilk Cornbread
Grandma knows best! Especially when it comes to baking. Love this classic cornbread recipe. Used a 9x9 pan, so the pieces were a bit smaller. (I just decided to buy an 8x8 pan to use the next time I make this.) Flavor was sweet, and I like that. Texture was good. Quick and easy recipe. I'll make it again and again.

Shells with Italian Sausage and Ricotta Stuffing
A quick, easy and delicious dish. I've made stuffed shells before, but adding Johnnsoville Sausage makes them a hearty, Italian meal. Very, very good.

Mexican Tortilla Breakfast Casserole
The next time you go out for Mexican food, take some tortilla chips home and bake this casserole for breakfast the next morning. I love the flavors of Mexican food, and this quick and easy egg dish is absolutely magnifico. Especially made with Johnsonville Sausage. Ole!
