About this Cook
A stay-at-home mother and wife of the best husband ever.
My favorite things to cook
Meditteranean and Mexican cuisine and good old Southern favorites like pork chops, fried chicken, black-eyed peas and cornbread.
My cooking triumphs
A dinner I made for my husband and his soldier buddies: Marinated Pork Loin, Green Bean Bundles, and Sweet Potato Casserole with a Pecan Crunch Topping.
My cooking tragedies
Hmmm, so many! A blackened pear cake, cookies that were more salty than sweet....and a hash brown casserole with crunchy, undercooked potatoes.

Nana Dot's Irish Soda Bread
My whole family loved the taste of this bread. I also like that you don't have to go out and buy buttermilk just for the recipe. The milk plus vinegar used in the recipe is a perfect substitute. Preparation was fairly simple and we only used raisins (1.5 cups) since that's all we had on hand. As far as baking goes, I found that after just 15 minutes in the oven on 400 the bread was already brown AND crunchy on the outside. So I had to cover it with foil for the remainder of cooking time. And we noticed it was quite crumbly when we cut into it (so on the dry side) but still the taste was delicious! Next time I bake it, will have have to watch it like a hawk to make sure it doesn't brown too much or get too dry.

Pork Steak Burritos
A good recipe, but only 3 stars as is because we had to add more spices to give it flavor. Cooking the pork with just bottled salsa was bland. As others suggested we added cumin, and a little red pepper and chili powder to the pork as it cooked in the skillet. Also, the meat was a bit chewy and not as tender as we would have liked. Maybe next time we'll try pounding/tenderizing it?

Fried Cabbage II
My husband told me he did not like cabbage when we got married so I've never cooked it, until last night at our Saint Patrick's Day dinner party. It was absolutely delicious, and I added a little extra bacon. Any kind of vinegar will work; I used tarragon vinegar myself. Everyone at my dinner party raved about the cabbage and they all (including my husband) asked for seconds!
