About this Cook
I am a fun loving, newly single redhead that loves to cook. I grew up in Greenwood, IN, went to Uindy for college where I graduated with an degree in History. I've worked at a local living history museum where I learned alot about historical cooking... Cooking on the Hearth, Butchering chickens and Pigs, baking in a wood burning stove... That I think is when I really really started getting interested in cooking. I now work out at the Indianapolis Internation Airport for a private charter company where I get to meet and greet the rich and famous.
My favorite things to cook
My favorite things to cook? Too many things actually. I come from a family of farmers that raise beef, so I am always try to find ways to use up my freezer full of beef. I also try and find recipes that suit the season or things that I can find at the farmers market.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom and I like to get together to make holiday dinners. This year we had Christmas at my new house. We also like to get together and make christmas cookies.
My cooking triumphs
This year I cooked the Thanksgiving Turkey... I put whole sage leaves under the turkey skin, and then lathered the turkey in butter. My mom was so proud, and the men in my life loved it! I'm just glad I didn't under cook it.
My cooking tragedies
I made a Make ahead french toast bake for the guys at my work... When I put it in the oven, the maple syrup topping ended up oozing on to the bottom of my brand new oven. Yuck.

Orzo and Tomato Salad with Feta Cheese
Wowza was this easy and delish! I cooked the orzo in some chicken stock that I infused with some thyme... Added another dimension of flavor.

Toscana Soup
My Husband and I love this soup! During the summer months, I like to buy fresh turkey italian sausage at the grocery in the fresh meat case. I buy half spicy and half sweet. I also like to remove the casing and fry the sausage. It makes the soup have a little more flavor, but can turn a little greasy if not drained. Very Yummy!

Slow Cooker Chicken Stroganoff
My husband and I loved this recipe. It was easy to cook, and when cooked on High, took half the time. We served this with hot buttery noodles and the flavors were really simple yet excellent.
