About this Cook
I'm just a small town girl with a crazy craving to cook for people!
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook fried chicken and other comfort foods. My goulash is my best dish though.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Just cooking is a tradition in my family. We love to be around eachother, and food brings us closer. I have been gathering all my family's traditional recipies for bread, pie crust and my aunts famous 7 layer salad, among others.
My cooking triumphs
I just cooked my first full traditional thanksgiving dinner for 14 people. It was the greatest moment of my cooking career. I was so happy I teared up. Call me a wuss, I was unbelieveably happy!
My cooking tragedies
Well I just moved out, and haven't exactly had the chance to REALLY screw something up. My worst habit is never setting a timer, because I don't have one around here! I know I need to get one... Oh well. =]

A Simply Perfect Roast Turkey
This was my first Thanksgiving meal that I had ever cooked. I'm only 20 and decided to feed 14 of my friends. I didn't skimp on anything! I had a 20 lb bird and stuffed that sucker with some stuffing. It came out AMAZING. I was so worried that I would somehow mess something up. I had never cooked a whole bird, so I was REALLY worried about the color of the outside. I perservered and the end result was outstanding! I was so proud of myself, and so were my parents. The only thing I changed was I boiled my giblets the night before along with the neck and the celery and onion for my stuffing. I used that broth to baste my bird. It is a total no hassle way to cook a turkey!
