About this Cook
I'm not so much a person who loves to Cook, as a person who loves to EAT!!! I'm "born & raised" in Mississippi, though I've lived other places and am thrilled to be back. Married to a good ol' country boy - Jim, aka "Redeye" - who's reluctantly become a good daddy to my sweet kitty, Tallulah Belle.
My favorite things to cook
Gosh, there are lots..... Gumbo (Yum!)or anything Cajun/Creole, pasta, grilling. I don't really bake, but that's because I don't have much of a sweettooth. Bring on the potatoes & gravy, please!!
My cooking triumphs
I'm most proud of our two-year run at the Ducks Unlimited duck gumbo-cookoff here in Jackson, MS. We won people's choice each year and had a ball doing it!
My cooking tragedies
Well, there have been several.... but the worst? The absolute WORST? That would have to be the first time I tried Chicken 'n Dumplings. I was in college & had my grandmother (Nanny) on the phone giving me her instructions, and well, you know how "they" are - "a little of this, not too much of that" - that's about the best you get as far as measurements go....... SO, first she forgot to mention I needed to use PLAIN flour (not self-rising), and she said to mix in shortening..... That's about the time they had just started making butter-flavored Crisco. And of course, I thought, well heck..... If regular's good, wouldn't butter-flavored be Better?..... Suffice it to say I ended up with a big pot of almost Neon-Yellow MUSH!!!! Seriously frightening stuff!!! I was horrified and my boyfriend & roommates were none too impressed. I guess that's why Domino's does such a good business. Oh well, lesson learned. BTW - my great-aunt later taught me how SHE made dumplings! Now I'm an expert, lol.

Rigatoni with Duck, Onions, Apple and Red Wine
Very good! We really enjoyed this dish. It didn't blow me away (hence 4 stars), but it was definitely good. It's not pretty, but has a very nice flavor. I thought the wine would be overpowering - it wasn't. I did forget the parsley, but doubt that made a difference, and I used penne since my grocery didn't carry Barilla rigatoni. My only real complaint was difficult timing with things cooking in 3 different pans. Another winner from Barilla!

Cranberry Orange Tea Bread
We enjoyed this bread, but for us the orange was a bit strong. I would make a few adjustments next time.

Lentil and Sausage Soup
Yum! I followed the advice of others (Bakingnana) and used the full package of sausage (18-19oz) and all chicken broth (not water). It was a huge hit with my husband and the full house of surprise guests. We will make this soup again & again!
