About this Cook
I have been married to my wonderful husband Mark for 4 years, together for over 13, and I love him more than anything! I moved around a lot with my parents growing up - I've lived in Ohio, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Alabama and Texas... Alabama having been my favorite. After the recent loss of my Father, my husband and I currently reside in Kingwood, Texas with my Mother, but we are hoping to be able to move back to Alabama at some point in the future. "When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would have not a single bit of talent left and could say, 'I used everything You gave me!' - Erma Bombeck"
My favorite things to cook
Going on my limited experience, I would have to say I am best at making omelets & deviled eggs, but I am very good at following a recipe... there's hope for me yet!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Mom was always the day-to-day cook and quite good in her own right (especially her meatballs, lasagna & raspberry lindsor cookies!), but Dad would take care of the big things - holidays, celebrations, etc. His sausage stuffing at Thanksgiving is what I always looked forward to the most every year. ;o)
My cooking triumphs
I was very proud of an almost completely fat-free cheesecake that I made a few months ago... everyone loved it!
My cooking tragedies
Ugh - don't ever mash potatoes with one of those hand-held emersion blenders... you could've cemented a small building with what came out of that experience!

Totally Tangy Baked French Fries
These so-called fries were not cooked all the way through, even though I added more time to the recipe, and the seasonings were anything but "tangy". I was so excited to try this recipe - what a let-down!
