About this Cook
I am a 34 year old home cook and newly single parent to an awesome 7 year old girl. I love to cook and bake and my daughter loves to help too.
My favorite things to cook
scones, pound cake, cupcakes of any kind, chili, anything in the slow cooker, gumbo
My favorite family cooking traditions
Not really traditions, but I loved being in the kitchen with my great grandmother, my grandmother and even my mom. I learned so many methods from them and so many recipes that have never been written down.
My cooking triumphs
I made my daughter's first birthday cake from scratch. I was so excited that it came out so good!
My cooking tragedies
Way too many to name, lol

Seven-Up(R) Cake II
I followed this recipe to a T... and found that the bottom (or the top when you flipped it out of the cake pan) was REALLY pale. I have calibrated my oven, so the temperature is exact. Not sure what happened there. My cake is two toned at this point, and this has NEVER happened to me before with a 7 Up cake. I give it 3 stars because the technique is easy, the batter comes out light and airy and the cake itself has a great taste.

Fluffy Pancakes
These were absolutely amazing!! I had to make three batches because everyone ate them up before I could get any, lol. The only change I made was to add chocolate chips to one batch, sliced apples and strawberries to another batch and the third batch I added blueberries. This recipe is definitely my go to for pancakes from now on :)

Pecan Pie III
I made this recipe for my husband's birthday yesterday as written, no modifications, and it was a huge hit! I say this recipe is a keeper!
