For about the last week I've been following the meal planning suggestions from the BabyFit website. My eating habits were getting bad during the day and I needed some more structure to help keep them under control and make sure I'm getting the right amounts of calcium, protein, etc. to ensure… MORE

I was in the mood for Italian on the way home and hubby vetoed Spaghetti so I decided on Lasagna! I stopped at Publix on my way home and got a loaf of french bread, a carton of cottage cheese, fresh mushrooms and a 4-cup bag of mozzarella cheese since I had everything else at home. I'm… MORE

Another mother-in-law recipe! I've been craving Grandmother's Buttermilk Cornbread and wanted to make chili to go with it. I love good chili but don't make it that often, so I don't have a "go-to" recipe. I decided to go with the one in the cookbook from my mother-in-law since it… MORE

About Me
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!
