About this Cook
I started cooking when I was 12. Cooking is a hobby and therapy for me. My 3 children ages 5, 12 and 20 love my cooking. My youngest loves to help me in the kitchen.
My favorite things to cook
Southern dishes and desserts.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Sundays are the best meals and of course more food. Every Saturday we have a big breakfast. During the holidays we eat well from eating pumpkin rolls in the Fall and punch, cheeseball and crackers and different cookies and candies at Christmas. And of course we always get our favorite meal and cake on our birthday.
My cooking triumphs
Catering my sister's wedding for 200 people in 2004. Thereafter encouragement from my coworkers led me to start catering on the side.
My cooking tragedies
When I first got married I tried new dishes. The one and only time I fixed lemon chicken I decided to put 2 extra lemons cut in half in the skillet while it was cooking. It absorbed all of the juice in the lemons and it was so tart you could not eat it. My husband said "honey, I love you but I cannot eat this." Every time I mention lemon chicken I always get the same reaction.

Easy Guacamole
OUTSTANDING! My husband thinks this is the best - better than at a restaurant! I've been using this recipe for several months now. I only use about 3/4 of a lime, 1/2 teaspoon of salt and 1/4 teaspoon of pepper.

Pico de Gallo Chicken Quesadillas
My family loves them - we usually have them at least once a week. We think they are better than at a restaurant! I cut down on the limes and only used one as others suggested. I also make them on my griddle so I can make several at one time.

Creamy Spiced Coleslaw
This is the recipe I have been looking for. I've made this recipe several times now. The only changes I made were putting the packaged coleslaw in a food processer to chop it into smaller pieces which also makes it less runny and adding a little more sugar.
