When I first got the news that I was to be an Allrecipes Ambassador, I was so unbelievably excited. I thought to myself that this was going to be an opportunity to get to know people, share experiences, and just have a really fun time. And it has been. I'm so grateful for this opportunity… MORE

About this Cook
I'm currently a SAHM and loving it. I have four children from college age to preschool, and have been a professional cake decorator for years and when it all comes right down to it, cake is my life. :) I love to cook and bake for my family and especially love doing large meals for holidays. I also blog outside of AR - if you'd like to stop in and visit!
My favorite things to cook
I love finding the unusual recipes and trying them out. My grandmother's recipes are often my favorites - watermelon pickles, three (really four) bean salad, etc. I like to find very old recipes (and recipe books) and bring the forgotten recipes to life again.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family is actually quite large but VERY spread out so our cooking traditions usually center around holiday fare. Good, hearty, home cooked dishes and stick-to-your-ribs casseroles and such. And butter. Lots and lots of butter.
My cooking triumphs
Finally being able to work with yeast! I had never had the knack for it until recently when I was determined to get over this love/hate relationship with yeast - I loved to use it and it hated me for it! But now I feel I have maybe developed the patience for it? I always seemed to be in a hurry before, but now things are working quite nicely.
My cooking tragedies
A beautiful dish made up solely by me at around age 10 - an astonishing grape jell-o and rice dish that was, oh, how shall I say it? "Different." :)

Wonderful dessert and the flavors are fabulous. This has become a tradition for your July 4th festivities along with the strawberry version. Yummy!

Fluffy Pancakes
Best - - - pancakes - - - ever. These are now a family favorite and the only pancakes my kids will eat. I now add vanilla, and sometimes cinnamon or nutmeg, or both. Very versatile and so fluffy and wonderful! Thank you kris!
