About this Cook
I like to read everything, listen to all kinds of music, consider myself very open minded, even liberal.
My favorite things to cook
Good downhome Southern cooking, like my Grandmothers. I also enjoy cooking Italian and Mexican dishes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Back home, my Grandmothers and parents handled everything themselves, so I am learning on my own except for a few phone calls here and there.
My cooking triumphs
I have improved IMMENSLEY over the past few months, graduating from Hamburger Helper to mouth watering entrees.
My cooking tragedies
Oh there are too many to list. I was known as "the one who doesn't cook."

Anthony's Lime Chicken with Pasta
I LOVE this. Made a few changes...I didn't bread the chicken, I just left it as it was, since I read that it can get soggy. I also read that the rind can make the dish taste bitter, so I squeezed the limes over the chicken and then added a bit of the fruit (sans rind) to the mixture. My husband and I absolutely loved this recipe, and will be making it again. The leftovers were even great!

Easy Pasta Casserole
My husband and I loved this and ate for the leftovers for the next day's lunch and dinner. I did tweak it a little, since reading that some people thought it a bit bland. I first sauteed onions and bell peppers in olive oil until it started to carmelize before adding the beef to brown. I then seasoned the beef with garlic, salt, pepper, and italian seasoning. I used a spaghetti sauce that had lots of veggies in it, and used diced tomatoes instead of stewed. I also used penne pasta. It was soooo flavorful and was great with crusty bread.

Chicken Bake and Rice
Neither my husband nor I enjoyed this. The sauce was just too rich for us, I think maybe if I used lighter versions of ingredients for the sauce it would be better, as well as use less cream cheese. I just didn't like the flavor that was produced from the cream cheese, mushroom soup and wine mixture.
