About this Cook
I am 27 yrs old, a black female, married, Ph.D. student, with a 2yr old + one on the way. Cooking is a stress reliever for me, but I make such a big mess in the kitchen:-)
My favorite things to cook
i love slow cooking...oh and shakes. I make pretty good jambalaya, cornbread casserole, mac and cheese, hotdogs & baked beans :-), cabbage, sauteed veggies...
My favorite family cooking traditions
I come from a family of bakers...but I don't care for baking.
My cooking triumphs
I have never fried anything other than an egg, because I've always been nervous about grease spatters.....buuuut... for christmas I got a cool daddy deep fryer and I'm overjoyed now!

Cornbread Stuffing Southern Style
I tried to make this recipe vegan. Don't do it. Find another recipe. It was a mistake to use Hodgson Mills cornbread mix with flaxseed/water and so delicious yogurt. That cornbread started out less desirable. Then it was a big mistake to add 2 tsp of salt AND 2.5 cups of veggie broth. The result was edible, but a bit salty and not tasting anything like the stuffing i made 2 years prior when I wasn't a veg*n. Giving it three stars because it might have tasted good if I didn't change it.

Vegan Mac and No Cheese
Not bad taste wise, but certainly did not taste anything close to real mac and cheese. The worst part is how expensive it was to make. For the price, I'd like it to taste MUCH better.
