About this Cook
Paralegal and kennel owner; live with significant other X 20 years; 2 sons (ages 25 and 34), one daughter-in-law (very good mother), and 3 granddaughters. Enjoy growing herbs, strength training, running, crossword puzzles, reading new age literature.
My favorite things to cook
Grilled chicken and turkey; beef bourguignon because you have time to enjoy wine while cooking with it as well. Also enjoy slow roasting and braising meats and adding fresh herbs to everything.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mother's cornbread dressing (with some improvements) and her roasted turkey (now convection roasted).
My cooking triumphs
Thanksgiving 2009. Cooked an entire Thanksgiving dinner, including dressing, "gluten free" so my granddaughers could enjoy everything on the table.
My cooking tragedies
I once made cornbread dressing without adding the cornbread! Nice and mushy.

Baked French Fries I
Great baked fries. Used ancho chili powder and 1/4 tsp onion salt rather than onion powder. Took 30 minutes without flipping over.
