About this Cook
I'm a mom who never thought she'd try to become a domestic goddess! I'm getting better every day.
My favorite things to cook
(Southern) breakfast, all desserts, pizza, pasta, and anything that combines lean meats and fresh veggies.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I'm a big fan of making desserts at Christmas with my family and waking up to make breakfast with my husband or parents. I love budgeting and cooking.
My cooking triumphs
Made my own cheese. Poached an egg perfectly. Made almost all of our Thanksgiving dinner in my tiny kitchen. Cooked up tons of homemade Christmas presents. Made homemade candy canes... that my toddler shattered. Hosted the dessert part of a progressive dinner party.
My cooking tragedies
I tried to make lentil soup with water, bits of ham, salt, pepper, and cooking it for only 15 minutes. When I was very young, I once used a half cup of baking soda to make cookies. They were wretched. Made delicious homemade candy canes... that my toddler shattered.

Spicy Cajun Pretzels
COULD. NOT. STOP. SNACKING. Soooo good. I did not have high expectations for this snack because I didn't think the flavors would go well together - I was wrong!!!

Chocolate Applesauce Pudding
I didn't think this was so bad as everyone else does. We really like to eat a lot of food with fruit and veggies, as a "healthier" dessert, and this was a great after-dinner dessert. Would I serve it at a dinner? Nope. But my kids liked it and ate it.

Slow Cooker White Chicken Chili
This was great and easy, but oh my gosh did it need spices like crazy. WAY more chili powder and cumin and salt and pepper and anything!
