About this Cook
I remember at a very young age my grandmother letting me stir whatever she was making or help to knead dough. As I got a little older, she'd teach me how to scramble and fry eggs. Know I've graduated to making her meals, helping her in the kitchen and learning where ever possible. You could say my grandmother has taught me most of everything I know about cooking.
My favorite things to cook
I don't know if I like making just one type of food. I like making different, colorful and flavorful dishes. Most of my family is very reluctant to try anything that I've made or "created". My sister often says "I can tell Brandi made this".
My favorite family cooking traditions
For all the major holidays..Christmas, Easter and Thanksgiving our whole family will go to grandma's house. Grandma will usually prepare a huge feast and we'll fellowship around the meal.

Quinoa and Black Beans
I wanted a simple, yet delicious recipe so I took this one and omitted the last 5 ingredients and it was amazing just like that!

Alissa's Vegetarian Lentil Meatloaf
This is the first time I've made a veggie loaf-it's ok. It is somewhat bland though. I made a peanut gravy to go over it which helped some. I think it just needs more spice.
