About this Cook
I've always prepared quick meals that were the same all of the time, and had a husband that never complained. Since we retired I decided to learn how to be a better cook. After much floundering around with other sites, I found AR and couldn't love it more. I love to cook organic. I find the reviews to help a lot and encourages me to experiment with recipes.
My favorite things to cook
I make all of my own organic bread and rolls, buns, etc in a bread machine, so I always enjoy new recipes for that. I love Mexican and Italian food. I buy organic as much as possible, including my flour, sugar and what few canned foods I use.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I grew up in Texas where everything was fried, so I try to keep that to a minimum. But I do love Tex-Mex. I try to adapt the recipes from my Mother and Grandmother, to healthier food.
My cooking triumphs
I baked a chocolate cake from scratch!
My cooking tragedies
Asian and Indian food.

Slow Cooker Split Pea Soup with Bacon and Hash Browns
Wonderful soup. Very easy. I do it on the stove too. Word to SilverXeno....could your slow cooker be dying? I can't imagine one cooking peas for 24 hours and them still being crunchy. Just a thought.

Orange Chicken Stir Fry
I didn't add salt, enough in the soy sauce, and I halved the soy sauce and used more orange juice. I don't care for a lot of soy sauce. I also used corn starch instead of flour, just because it's easier for me. This tasted GREAT. I love stir fries and had some fresh oranges on hand. I will make this over and over.

Grandmother's Buttermilk Cornbread
For literally years I have resigned myself to cornbread that falls apart when you try to get in out of the pan, much less when you try to slap on some butter. This recipe is not only delish it holds together! Last night my husband said "well you finally found a keeper." Thank you Bethany. You've brought cornbread back into my life.
