Things are changing around my house, for the better for sure, but a big change nonetheless! My husband graduated college in early¬†May and had a spinal fusion a little over a week later. He's now almost 2 months post-op and got clearance about 2 weeks ago to start working so he was FINALLY… MORE

About this Cook
I love preparing meals for my family, I grew up eating home cooked dinners as a child, and felt that time around the table was very special. It gives me a LOT of pleasure to prepare something my family enjoys!
My favorite things to cook
I cook with a lot of chicken, we prefer boneless, skinless breasts. I don't think I have a preference for a certain style of food, or ethnicity. I cook mainly simple, meat and rice/pasta/potatoes kinds of meals. I enjoy trying different flavors and fixing new recipes. We enjoy italian, southern, mexican, etc.
My favorite family cooking traditions
It's sort of a tradition in our house to have biscuits and gravy every weekend, usually Saturday morning. My husband grew up in the South, and it's comfort food! I love preparing a Traditional Thanksgiving Dinner: Roast turkey, green bean casserole, mashed potatoes, stuffing, rolls, and cranberry jelly... MMMMM!!!!
My cooking triumphs
I think I was pretty thrilled with myself the first time I successfully made a home-made pizza crust. I am also very good with homemade breads, and very proud of my banana and lemon poppy seed breads!
My cooking tragedies
I have two classic cooking tragedies from when I had just started cooking (age 16) - the first time was when I tried to thicken gravy by adding flour directly into the HOT liquid - LOTS of clumps... it was SOO gross! The 2nd time was when I tried to make my first white sauce, and I just could NOT get the flour to milk ratio right, it was pasty and disgusting!!! I've learned a lot since then, but those are classic OOPS memories!

Ramen Chicken Noodle Soup
Loved this quick, easy, and wonderfully tasty soup! I used a low sodium broth, so added in a little of the chicken flavored ramen packet for a little bit of extra flavor. The ginger and soy sauce were wonderful additions. My almost 2 year old LOVED the broth and noodles in this one and didn't want to stop slurping it up. I will definitely make this one again - Swanson broth is delicious for any chicken noodle soup base!

Smashed Potatoes from Swanson(R)
This is a super simple and completely delicious method to make mashed potatoes. I left the skins on (diced the pieces somewhat small) and used a hand masher with a little of the broth left in the pot (drained off most of it, and reserved in case I needed it). I didn't add salt or anything - they were delicious with just the broth.

Brie Cheese Appetizer
Baked brie rocks. We used a wedge of brie, cut in half and filled with apricot preserves, wrapped in pastry dough and baked for about 35 minutes. Was lovely. Next time will add a little more preserves; we liked the sweet of the fruity preserve to cut the richness of the cheese. Yumm!
