COTW- Dani Kate Parker


This week’s Cook of the Week is Dani Kate Parker daughter of Russell and Ashley Parker. Dani Kate is three years old and attends school at Southeastern Technical College. She loves dancing at Southern Dance Connection, playing t-ball, swimming, riding the four-wheeler, being outdoors, and playing with baby Parker. When Dani Kate grows up, she wants to be a pharmacist like her mommy. Here are three recipes that Dani Kate would like to share. Enjoy! 

Fluffy Scrambled Eggs
4 large eggs
1/4 c. half-n-half
1/4 tsp. Kosher salt
1 Tbsp. unsalted butter
Pepper to taste

In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together eggs, half-n-half, salt and pepper. Melt butter in a small nonstick pan over medium heat. Add eggs to center of pan and immediately reduce heat to medium-low. Wait for edges to start to set, then, gently push the eggs from one end of the pan to the other. Continue this process, pausing in between swipes to allow uncooked egg to settle on warm pan and cook, gently pushing liquid to form curds. Once eggs are cooked to your liking, remove from pan and enjoy!

Ground beef
Spaghetti Sauce of your choice
Spaghetti noodles
Salt and pepper to taste
Cheese, optional

In a medium pan, bring water to a boil and add noodles and butter. In a separate pan, brown hamburger meat. Salt and pepper to taste. When spaghetti noodles are al dente, drain noodles from water and return to pot. Drain grease from hamburger meat and return hamburger meat to pot, mixing in spaghetti sauce of your choice. In a glass dish, top noodles with spaghetti meat sauce. Add cheese (optional). Bake in oven at 350°F until cheese is melted.

Soft and Chewy Sugar Cookies
Baking Soda
Baking Powder
Vanilla Extract
Almond Extract, optional

Preheat oven 350°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper (or coat with baking spray). In a large bowl with standing mixer or hand mixer, cream butter and sugar together until light and fluffy, about one minute. Add in egg, vanilla extract, and almond extract; beat until combined. Add in flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Mix until just combined, making sure to scrape down sides of bowl. Roll dough into 1” balls and roll in sugar. Place on baking sheet, about 2’ apart. Bake for 10-11 minutes, or until cookies have set. Allow to cool and enjoy!
