About this Cook
Newlywed happily cooking for her husband, loved ones, and anyone who loves baked goods.

New Orleans red beans & rice and jambalaya.
My cooking triumphs
The perfect sugar cookie/shortbread hybrid decorated beautifully with royal icing.
My cooking tragedies
Roasted eggplant soup and cayenne corn pudding...sounds horrible to me now, but somehow I made an attempt at this in college for a boyfriend. Needless to say, we went hungry that night.

Holy double tomatoes...this recipe is awesome! Recently fixed this for an engagement party and thi dish was easily the hands down winner of the evening! We pre-toasted the bread like reviews advised & it was perfecto!

Wild Rice Soup I
So awesome! I just fixed this for my husband on a cold, rainy night & it warmed us right up! I made a few alterations: used fat free half/half, cut up some chicken tenderloins and placed them in the pot with the cooking rice, used chicken broth to boil rice instead of water, and cut the butter in half. Delicious!

Peach Pie the Old Fashioned Two Crust Way
I read all of the reviews prior to baking and used a few suggestions..1/4 cup flour, 1/4 cup corn startch..used lime juice in collander instead of lemon, left out nutmeg and doubled cinnamon. When I ate while warm, it tasted too tangy, but when I had a slice after it completely cooled, the tang was much less noticeable. This pie was NOT runny at all! I spooned in my mixture with a slotted spoon instead of poured in the pan. Maybe that helped prevent runniness? I think this is a wonderful recipe!

Pile it into a tomato half, load it into a wrap, or spread it on bread. Chicken salad does it all.

Broccoli salad makes a great side dish or a light main dish on a warm night.
