My First Thanksgiving all by myself!
My First Turkey
About this Cook
My husband and I just got married and moved to South Dakota. I'm trying to try out new things and my husband is very good at being my guinea pig! The most recent success: Copy Cat Rasta Pasta
My favorite things to cook
I like to cook soups the most, I love trying new things in my slow cooker, I'm newly on a lo-cal kick (too much cooking after the wedding), and I'm trying fish and seafood.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My big Italian family's traditions are making homemade ravioli and pizzeli's for Christmas.
My cooking triumphs
Pot Roast, Ranch Baked Chicken, Enchiladas, Pasta Salad, Andes Mints Cookies, Rasta Pasta, Smoked Turkey, Onion Cheddar Biscuits, Anything with Kielbasa, Spicy Chicken Casserole with Cornbread...
My cooking tragedies
Meat"pile", Crab Artichoke Cassarole, chicken in the crockpot (any kind gets dry and stringy for me), Cabbage and Kielbasa Skillet, Brined Turkey... You name it, I've probably ruined it.

Gooey Butter Cookies
These cookies are FANTASTIC! I added 1/4 tsp of Almond extract in addition to the vanilla and used a small ice cream scoop to make my balls because handling them was way too messy. I have made these twice in the last two weeks because my husband ate almost all of the cookies the first round!

Bourbon Chicken
This had WAY too much bourbon! It was way too bourbon flavored and the chicken was really dry. It didn't taste anything like the chicken you get at "the mall" and I will for sure not make this recipe again.

Bloody Mary Chicken
The skin of the chicken had an ok flavor, the rest of the chicken was like the kind of chicken in chicken noodle soup. Fell apart (in a bad way) and was just flavorless.
