About this Cook
I'm a working mom/wife who loves to cook. I could spend all day in the kitchen. My dream is to someday go to culinary school. Not so much to work as a chef but just do it for fun.
My favorite things to cook
I'm not much of a baker so I'd have to say pasta, chicken stir fries, anything cajun.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. I love to cook all day.
My cooking triumphs
Anything my kids say, "wow mom this is great."
My cooking tragedies
When I was first married, I made potato chip fried chicken. It was the greasiest thing on earth, but my darling husband ate it!

Apple Pie by Grandma Ople
This recipe was unbelievable. My son who dislikes apple pie couldn't resist trying it since it was getting such rave reviews from our other guests. He said it was great! This is a real compliment. I've never made a pie that you lattice first and then pour the "sauce" over. I was a bit hesitant to do that but OMG it was incredible. I will not use any other recipe from now on.

Turkey Wild Rice Soup
This was an excellent recipe for using leftover turkey. Yum. One of my friends who is staying with us, who admits to being a picky eater, loved it. This is a keeper.
