The Allstars have been working with Reynolds as an AR sponsor this month, but actually I have been working with Reynolds for most of my life!  When I was learning to cook, (won't say how long ago THAT was!) Mom always had Reynolds aluminum foil around.   We didn't mess with any store brands,… MORE

About this Cook
My cooking experiences began in the 4th grade Conservation Club. Cooking and Sewing were classes for girls, and my mom agreed to teach them for me and a couple of friends. We began with a blond brownie sort of dessert. After I made it a few times, I began to experiment with the recipe. Mom was a no-recipe cook, and I do that, too, but I usually follow a new recipe the first time. Most of the time, I can tell by looking if we will like it. I have a husband, 2 sons, 1 granddaughter, and one ex-daughter-in-law. I was chosen to be an AllRecipes Allstar Ambassador in 2012, and I am so excited!

My favorite things to cook
My favorite thing to cook is dressing (I'm a Southern Gal) for holiday turkey. I never work from a recipe, but I just start sauteing and mixing, sampling as I go. By the time I think it's right for the oven, I've eaten a full serving of the raw mix!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I have some heirloom recipes from both my grandmothers, my mother, and other family members. When I prepare them, I am remembering time in their kitchens.
My cooking triumphs
One year, we hosted my husband's office Christmas party in our home. I did the whole dinner for 24, and it was a huge success.
My cooking tragedies
My first try at making croissants was kind of embarrassing. The croissants were a success, but the house was a disaster, and of course, the guests were already there! The recipe said to bake them in a jelly roll pan, but I used a cookie sheet. As the butter in the croissants melted, it ran off the sheet and into the hot oven, smoking up the whole house! Was my face red ...

Sherry Chicken and Mushrooms
We had this tasty recipe for lunch today, because I had everything except the cheese. This was a delicious combination of flavors, and fairly easy to prepare. I made only two very slight changes: I used a clove of fresh, minced garlic, added with the liquid, and I sliced the onion vertically, instead of chopping it. I picked up a nice provolone, and it really sent the dish over the top. Thanks for the recipe, Alisa!

Lisa's Easy Chicken
Yes, this is easy to throw together, but be sure to read the recipe all the way through. It must bake for an hour, so it's not exactly the best recipe to select for an evening when you work late. Other than that, which was my fault, and I will certainly not dock the recipe for that, this was tasty. Mine made a good quantity of liquid, which could be thickened and enjoyed over pasta or rice, but I chose this for it's low carbs. I didn't have tomatoes, but I don't think the dish suffered for that. Thanks for the idea!

Capers and Halibut
This simple, lovely recipe really highlights the delicate flavor of halibut. No need to dredge in flour, or add bread crumbs or parmesan, this was just a beautiful fish in lovely buttery sauce. Not only was this recipe good, it was quick and easy, too! Thanks for sharing!
