Ladies and Gentleman, I've met the enemy, and its name (at least on this website) is Grandmother's Buttermilk Cornbread. Do not pass go. Do not collect $200. Do not make more than you plan on eating, because you will eat them all and then pass out underneath your desk while your… MORE

I never loved pork chops much because my mom just pan fried them with salt n pepper. A little dry. I think I have found a way to make pork chops that has me drooling: the Cola Pork Chop. That makes for a quick n easy dinner with cabbage and sweet potatoes mashed with mint. The pork chops… MORE

I love video games and I love cooking. How much money I would pay for a game that replicates cooking...of course it would be backwards compatible with my Good Eats Simulator 5000XRT. Sadly, no game I know of captures the true joy of cooking - it's very difficult to systemize something… MORE

I made a salad for last night's potluck. It was pretty much amazing. This is one of those recipes where you get to say "I didn't change a thing. Delicious." And now I have a lot of leftovers, but that's okay because it's a salad. The brownies on the other hand. Ho ho. May I introduce… MORE

I spend too much time here, probably - no, definitely. My recipe box is in dire need of a re-org and cleaning. I just got done with spring cleaning for everything else - office desk, closet, jewelry box, kitchen. underwear drawer. cat supplies...about 7 dead plants on the patio...oop, I'm… MORE

A few weeks ago my mom called randomly asking if I could send over some pictures I took of food in Japan for her to use in her health and nutrition class (read: the cooking class). I was like, okay mom, not sure what's so interesting about it - but as I was looking over the pics it brought back… MORE

These are also called "memes" (rythms with "dreams") by many webizens. AKA grande internet time waster. Glad to see AllRecipes isn't immune! 1. How do you like your eggs? I don't have a favorite...fried egg is a great diet breakfast, scrambled eggs with salsa is also yummy, and my man… MORE

Just some pics of my kitchen - inspired by the "Day in My Life" Livejournal community. It's small so I have to cram stuff in and make good use of what counter space I have. For anyone who's interested: Table from Pier 1, picture/placemats/bowl from World Market, dutch oven by Lodge,… MORE

A while ago I got into a big genealogy kick - I've always been interested in it but I logged quite a few hours on ancestry.com (by far the best genealogy resource I used), dug around and poked through files, birth certificates, this that and the other. I always knew I had some mix of… MORE

I wish there was an eating simulator. I hate the feeling of being too full or feeling guilty about eating. But I love to eat. The sensation, the flavors, the texutres...I love warm food...ahhhhh. My cat has it nice. He can eat all that I set out for him and couldn't be… MORE

About Me
I enjoy trying new recipes and unusual ingredients. There are few foods I will turn down without a second thought - sweets is one of them, and fiery hot spicy food is the other. As I'm getting older that is changing, though. I love reading cook books and doing research about food. It fascinates to no end! I usually create a recipe from several different ones. On the non-cooking side of things, I'm a Christian, native Texan and faithful Longhorn with two cats and a great boyfriend! I love the outdoors and spending time with my family and friends. I'm also somewhat obsessed with the nuclear winter and extreme survival situations.
My favorite things to cook
In general I try to cook from scratch. Any kind of bread - rolls, loaves, boules, baguettes, buns, biscuits, quick breads - will catch my eye. Pastas, soups, and cookies. I am absolutely in love with cake batter. Once I had a party in middle school where we just made a bunch of cakes and ate the batter.
My favorite family cooking traditions
The Thanksgiving and Christmas turkey/waldorf salad/mashed potatoes with gravy by my mom, buttermilk biscuits on Sunday morning before church from my Dad, grilling hamburgers in the summer in the backyard, black eyed peas for new years dinner, decorating sugar cookies on Christmas Eve with my sister, coffee any time of the night.
My cooking triumphs
I can rival my dad in his biscuit making ability. I have the perfect dinner roll recipe - my very own. I taught myself how to make jam and jelly. I taught myself how to make bread!
My cooking tragedies
dense as a stone wheat bread, homemade condensed milk tastes weird key lime pie, onions and sugar have no place hanging out together in mashed sweet potato, there's nothing puffy about my lemon meringue, and the bottom of the fish tank poached salmon.
