About this Cook
I am a born again christian and best friend and wife to my husband Michael. I am a stay at home mom to our four children. I love to read and study the Bible and listen to sermons. I enjoy cooking when I can do it in my own quiet time and am not rushed. I love to try new dishes on a regular basis. I enjoy computer hobbies when I can find time for them.

My favorite things to cook
I love to try a large variety of foods and I honestly cannot say that I have a favorite thing to cook other than cookies. I am obsessed with making cookies for some reason :)
My favorite family cooking traditions
Southern Food. My mom taught me from a young age to cook southern food. T
My cooking triumphs
Pulling off the entire Thanksgiving Dinner for our family without a large amount of time to prep the day before.
My cooking tragedies
Lemon Meringue Pie: I rushed this one when I should have taken my time. I have to admit I do not have a fail proof tried and true recipe for a great pie crust but had used this particular one before so I thought that I was safe rushing :) Not! That crust was awful. I am not sure what I did wrong with it. I also accidentally added the whites to the batter instead of saving for my Meringue topping. It was just a complete wreck. I think it was just an off night for me.

Bacon Cheddar Deviled Eggs
I actually like this recipe better than original devilled eggs. Not that I hate those but these were so flavorful. I did add minced onion, chives, minced pickled jalepenos (about 5 slices), seasoned with Tastefully Simple's Fiesta Party Dry Mix and I used bacon bits, and everything included in the recipe above as well as sprinkled the tops ever so lightly with cayenne pepper. I think it will be a recipe that people love if they are not hard core regular devilled egg lovers (and no other will do). It has texture and crunch and I suppose you could puree it if you wanted to avoid that but yum! I loved it. Thanks for the recipe and for inspiring me to make my own version of it.

Ranch Dressing II
Very good recipe! I think next time I will use buttermilk to make it more the way that I love but this was a great dressing. My husband loved it! Thanks!
