About this Cook
Just your average southern, working Mama who likes to create treats for the fam with a healthy twist. I'm known for sneaking whole grains and an extra vegetable into nearly every dish.
My favorite things to cook
Anything in the slow cooker (no working woman should be without it!), my Granny's recipes from when I was a kid, Tex-Mex dishes and, most recently, desserts.

Chicken Yakisoba
Tasty, quick and versatile. Adjust soy sauce and chili paste to your liking (I halved them and found it very flavorful). Add the cabbage last because it wilts quickly. Serve with Sriracha and grated ginger if you want more kick. We've got small kids so I kept the spicy to a minimum during cooking and doctored some for me and the hubby afterward. Home run. No leftovers.

Vanilla Ice Cream V
The only sub I made is that I used vanilla bean rather than vanilla extract. That made for fantastic flavor, but I found the texture to be just shy of perfect. I would've given 5 stars for simplicity PLUS perfect, creamy texture. Don't get me wrong, the family ate every bite, but I could tell it wasn't as creamy as I wanted it to be. IMO you really need a eggs to get that truly creamy texture in homemade ice cream.
