#AllstarsReynolds and #MealMagicI've made 2 recipes using the Reynolds Parchment Paper and the ease of using this paper is so good.  No need for sprays or greasing.  And the fact that you can slide the paper off the cookie sheet, reline, and use the same cookie sheet over.  I've really… MORE

About this Cook
I grew up in Stockton, CA and then lived most of my 1st married life in Lemoore, CA. We raised our 3 boys (twins and one more 20 months later)up together but when the youngest son graduated from high school, I realized life was too short to stay in an unhappy, dead marriage. After 23 years, a divorce and a new life. I moved to the Biloxi, MS area and met my wonderful husband now. He is all I could ask for. We have a kitty and a camper and we love them both! She camps with us all the time. I quit my job in August, '08 and my husband is retired (again) so we are enjoying our time together. ***UPDATE*** I'm working again and really liking my job. I don't have to bring it home with me and it's 32 hours per week, which works out perfect. Very happy to report that we are very happy again with a new job!!!
My favorite things to cook
My new favorite is finding low fat, healthy recipes to try. I'm really up for anything to cook.. it's truly my hobby.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Right now I would have to say that having a fish fry is the closest thing to a tradition I have. Not healthy but it sure is good! Fried fresh caught fish, hushpuppies, okra, french fries. All deep fried and all soooo good!!
My cooking triumphs
Beef Tenderloin With Roasted Shallots from this site. I served it to guests and they could not believe that this was a home made meal. For something so easy it's the best meal I've ever made. Also feel very good about my submitted recipes. I'm not one to usually make something up but I like to follow recipes and then maybe make a few tweaks to our liking and needs.
My cooking tragedies
HAHA - It still makes me laugh. My very first meal I cooked for my 1st husband was supposed to be eggs, bacon and pancakes but the skillet I tried to use was not a non-stick. Needless to say.. we had scrambled eggs, torn up bacon, and worst of all, scrambled pancakes.

Sweet and Sour Chicken I
This was excellent!! Picky hubs thought it was better than the take out place close to us. I will definitely be making this again. The only thing I will do different is use less vinegar in the sauce. It was just a bit to "zingy" for us. Mine thickened up perfectly. I did saute a red and yellow bell pepper and then proceeded with the sauce in the same pan. I used a 20 oz can of pineapple in its own juice and used it all. This does make a good bit of sauce so I'm going to freeze it and have it ready for next time.

Hobo Beans
Excellent beans but it makes a lot! I did change a couple of things but I think the original recipe would be delicious! I used a 28oz can of Bushes baked beans, 1 can of chili beans, and 1 can of navy beans. I did use the full cup of sugar and catsup. I sprinkled a good amount of dried onions instead of using diced. I also only used 1/2 lb ground beef and no bacon (trying to lower the calories). Let cook for about 4 hours on low, then 1 hour on high without the lid.. thickened right up.
