About this Cook
I'm a newlywed, full-time college student, part-time working, and full-time dog mom. So, I am always looking for easy, nutritious recipes!
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook and try out new recipes. My fiance and I love international food, especially Mediterranean and Greek cuisine. But we also have a soft spot for some spicy Southern soul food! We also love wine, and have fun pairing wines with different dishes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Since I grew up in the South, I always had the luxuries of eating collard greens, cornbread, black eyes peas, fresh seafood, sweet tea, and delicous pickled peaches. These foods always make me think of home!
My cooking triumphs
I made my first Christmas dinner this past year (with advice from my mother over the phone) and the turkey turned out phenomenal! My husband boasted that it was the best turkey he'd ever had.
My cooking tragedies
I tried this grilled, cheesy eggplant recipe, and I don't know how I managed to mess that one up, but it turned out awful!

Easy Slow Cooker French Dip
I can't believe I waited so long to try this recipe! Excellent recipe, I used a light beer, but will make sure to use a darker one next time. Added a TBSP of garlic and Worchestire.

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread
Awesome! I only used 3/4 cup of oil, and it turned out perfectly moist.

Chicken Tortilla Soup V
Super easy and I had all of the ingredients on hand. I used fresh corn and added some cilantro for a great weeknight meal. This is a keeper!
