About this Cook
I started cooking at a young age. I made my first Thanksgiving dinner in the 7th grade. I like to bake more than every day cooking.
My favorite things to cook
Meatloaf muffins. Stuffing muffins. Carrot cake, desserts, spaghetti, and pretty much everything!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I have perfected my turkey and mixed up a few different recipes. I love to make Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner.
My cooking triumphs
I can't name a specific triumph. I am just proud to know that my mom and gramma have taught me some invaluable cooking lessons!
My cooking tragedies
I am not paitent with rice. We have eaten slightly cruncy rice before.

Chicken Pot Pie IX
DO NOT cut corners by using frozen veggies! I did this after having made this recipe a few times fresh...yuck! I do reccommend adding some frozen country hash browns (cubed potatoes) for bulk and texture. I never have celery seed on hand so I just omit it and all is fine. Love the sauce in this recipe! I have probably made this 10 times already!

Sweet and Sour Chicken I
Great recipe! I have made this with and with out the breading/batter. My family preferred the breading but I liked it with out because of the time and calories that it saved. Remember to leave the peppers out until the last part of cooking....less soggy and a slight crisp!

Turkey Brine
Last year I used a granite-ware pot (the kind used for water bath canning) and put the turkey in with the brine on the bottom shelf of the fridge. Worked great!
