Hi there! My name is Shawna, and I am from a small town in Texas called Goliad. I am 27, and have been married almost 5 years, to my WONDERFUL husband, Scott. I have 2 stepkids, Cody (15) & Haley (12). Cody lives with us full-time. I love to cook and so does my husband. Please find me on Facebook (Shawna Dornburg Park) or email me at Shawrae@hotmail.com. :)
My favorite things to cook
I love to make pasta dishes with chicken and shrimp. We love ribs and good southern food also. Comfort food. Mac and cheese, fried chicken, mashed potatoes, chicken fried steaks. So if you have any favorites, email me at Shawrae@hotmail.com!!!!
My newest favorite would have to be cheesecake. I'd like to start making and playing with different types of cheesecake though. Turtle, fruit, and different crumb crusts.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We do all the typical things. Turkey at Thanksgiving, and a honey ham at Christmas. We also like to encorporate some Mexican flavors in at Christmas. We love good homemade tamales. Id like to start our own family traditions also.
My cooking triumphs
My most recent triumphs would have to be rolls, sausage rolls, buttermilk bread, Italian bread, cheesecakes, chocolate cakes, Chicken Parmesan, shrimp scampi and Fideo. I have been trying a lot of new recipes....Loving most of them!
My cooking tragedies
The worst thing i made was one of the first times i tried to make Chicken Parm. and i breaded the chicken with flour, and fried it. It was GROSS. Now i have perfected it. I also once messed up my deviled eggs. I used sweet relish instead of dill. Tasted horrible. Other than that, i havent made any mistakes. Maybe a crispy cookie bottom or two, but thats about it, SO FAR!!!
