About this Cook
Hi there! My name is Marsha. I am a mother to two boys of my own and two step children (boy and girl). My husband and I will be celebrating our 3yr anniversary on Valentines day this year(2005) We met off of a dateing site called Kiss. He lived on the west coast and I was from the east coast. Some other things about me are: I love cooking and searching for new recipes every chance I can get. I love to travel when I can. Creeks and waterfalls are one of my passions.I love hearing the water flow over rocks and hear the splashing of water falling from above (including rain on a tin roof) My favorite cooking channel is Food Network and the chefs I usually watch are Paula Dean,Emeril Live and Rachel Ray. Paula is my favorite, she is a southern cook as I concider myself as.
My favorite things to cook
I really dont have a favorite cause most anything is a challenge. Challenge meaning making sure you have the right taste and texture of the dish. I love to cook with spices. Spices are a comforting thing when I am fixing a new dish I am trying. If the recipe doesn't have enough spice in it, I am always adding what I feel it needs.

Creamy Cheddar Cheese Soup
This is the best cheese soup Ive ever made! I needed a cheese soup for another recipe I was making (Easy Pleasy Mac N Cheesy Navy Style). This recipe worked great! I even have some left over soup that I think Im going to make into a dip for the weekend Super Bowl menu. Thanks for sharing this delicious soup recipe! Its wonderful!

White Chili with Ground Turkey
Pretty good recipe. We are not much of a fan of the taste that the cinnamon gave and I even cut the measurement down to 1/8tsp but it was different from a standard chili one usually makes with beef. I did add a few ingredients to give more flavor and try to help the taste of the cinnamon. After dinner, hubby and I both agreed it was a good chili. I think that alittle bit of dillweed would be good in this recipe too. Thanks for sharing!

Famous Butter Chicken
This is one FANTASTIC! recipe! The chicken was so tender you didn't need a knife to cut it, a fork worked just fine. I did pound the chicken breast before I dredged in milk and crumb mixture. I sprinkled olive oil across chicken along with the pats of butter over each chicken breast. Baked for 50 min. depending on size of chicken breast one uses. Mine were bigger than normal. This is a KEEPER!
