After dinner smile
About this Cook
I'm a stay at home mom who is thrilled to do everything I love everyday. I love to cook for my family and have really been focusing lately on using local and organic foods.
My favorite things to cook
Biscuits and hot sausage in sage gravy, it also happens to be one of my favorite things to eat :)
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanksgiving at my parents, everyone has their own specialty but it doesn't stop up from trying to backseat drive everyone else. I learn amazing tips and ideas from my family during those mass cooking adventures. I can't wait to start my own traditions with my daughter.
My cooking triumphs
I've had lots of proud cooking moments, but the one that always comes to mind first was the first time my husband and I had my parents over for dinner. I made a huge Greek meal (my dad used to live there and we all love Greek food). He said my lamb chops were the best he had ever had and suggested I open a lamb stand somewhere!
My cooking tragedies
The first time I cooked for my husband I burned dijon parmesan crusted pork chops. My tiny apartment was full of smoke and we had to go out to eat. I'm pretty sure I cried while he laughed.

Becky's Chicken Salad
I made this tonight for my husband, he loves chicken salad but doesn't like things that have too much mayo. I added a little extra chicken (about 3 cups) and it came out perfectly coated, not dry at all. He loved it and so did I, I served with croissants as sandwiches. I will absolutely make this again although with one or two changes. I thought it was too salty, I probably wont add any next time. I also added a little pepper which I thought helped add a dimension which I will do again. Don't skip on the parsley, I almost did and I'm so glad I didn't. I used Italian parsley and the flavor was a nice addition. I can't imagine making this with cool whip, I don't think the sweet would be good addition to this, it reminds me of yams or fruit salad with marshmallows, yuck. Use the heavy whipped cream, it makes it so creamy and cuts out some of the mayo flavor.
