About this Cook
Ilove food, all types and cruisine and enjoy cooking. I live in the Bahamas (Nassau) family has alway enjoyed good eating so I became interested in cooking and baking at a very early age and spent lots of time in the kitchen helping my mother and grandmother. I cook or prepare 95% of what I eat (hardley ever eat out)so I'm always thinking up a meal or preparing a meal.
My favorite things to cook
Vegetables are my favorite things to cook. There are so many to choose from and ways to prepare them are endless. Vegetables can be a main dish, side dish, soups added to meat, pasta, rice, whatever! , Beans (all), Potatoes, Broccoli, Cabbage and Squash are my favorites.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family's favorite dishes - the ones that are a must at any family gathering is Broccoli casserole, Baked Macaroni & Cheese and Seafood. Good hearty soups are also big on our list.
My cooking triumphs
Well I'd have to say everything! My family and friends enjoy everything I fix. I've successfully converted many a non-veggie eaters. But my cakes and breads are probably most in demand - Christmas Fruit Cake, Banana Bread, Corn Bread
My cooking tragedies
In recent years, I've really not had any (yippee!) But I will never forget my first attempt at Peas 'n Rice (14rs old) it was a disaster. Too much much water was added! My folks said it tasted good though, just too soft. Which was good encouragement.

Stir Fry Turkey (Dad's Version)
I'm in love with this! have made it twice in a week. The only changes I made was to increase the liquids as I added cooked noodles directly to the stir fry (I didn't want it too dry) and added kale because I had it. This is an awesome way to use leftover turkey. Also, you can make it as spicy as you like.

Scottley's Basic Yellow Cake
This turned out beautifully! I made it for a pineapple upside down cake. I used 1/2c butter 1/2c shortening and added 3 tbsp of oil and creamed it for about 10 mins. Added eggs one at a time mixing well after each then fold in flour and milk careful not to over mix. I made this for a family dinner, everyone was surprised at how good it tasted. This is a keeper!

Creole Okra
Just made this minus the green peppers and I loved it! Served over brow rice. It wasn't slimy for me either, maybe because I fry the okra that is I add them to the onion/ garlic and fry for a few minutes before adding the tomatoes. Will be making regularly.
