About this Cook
I'm a married mom of five, two teens and three young adults! We just found out that we are about to be grandparents for the first time! I love to see my family enjoying my food and I love to send "doggie bags" home with the ones that don't live here. I have two dogs and two cats, Harlee, Hunter, Critter, and Mr. Man. I cook for them too!!!
My favorite things to cook
Everything!--I love creating new recipes. I have been trying lately to write things down as I go so I can recreate it, (if it's good) so maybe I'll get some submitted soon!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Making gingerbread houses every year. I never sell them, though. They are given as a gift or donated to the children's hospital, nursing home. I usually cook two Thanksgiving dinners, one here for family & friends and one at my MIL's in Alabama for everyone there. I do Christmas dinner for family as well. I started making chili and cheesecake for Saturday night poker at my Dad's deer camp when I was ten or eleven, and kept that up until my Dad's health no longer allowed it when my own kids were early teens. I sure miss that.
My cooking triumphs
My Red Velvet cake and stuffed mushrooms. I am always asked to make them.
My cooking tragedies
My sister's wedding cake. It was my first wedding cake, and I was up all night the night before and actually missed the ceremony finishing the cake. I never completely finished, but it was still pretty and it was DELICIOUS!

Lemon Cake with Lemon Filling and Lemon Butter Frosting
I used the cake and filling recipe for a baby shower cake. I used a different frosting recipe and covered in fondant. The cake was very moist and delicious and the filling was OMG good! Will be using this one a lot. Thanks.

Turtle Cheesecake
YUM! This was awesome. I made it for my son's 18th birthday. I did make a couple of changes. I used a can of boiled sweetened condensed milk in place of the caramels. I LOVE the taste. I swirled the melted chocolate into the batter to make it marbled instead of fully mixing the chocolate in. Thanks for the recipe. It will be used many times!

No Bake Peanut Butter Pie
I had never tried peanut butter pie before, just didn't sound good to me. However, I was looking for something easy, cool, and different and tried this recipe. It is wonderful! My husband kind of turned his nose up when I said peanut butter pie, but I got him to try a bite of mine and he immediately went to the freezer to get his own. I usually make two of all desserts and take one to my daughter; hubby saw the second pie and said "You're not taking the other one to Brandi are you?". So, I had to make two more! My son and his GF took a piece to the hospital where her mom is a nurse, and she and her friend were "fork-fighting" over the last bite! Son came home with a request for a whole pie to take to them. I made two more and sent one to the hospital. He came home and gave me $20 that the friend insisted I take. I gave him the other pie to take to her! Thanks for the fabulous recipe. Oh, the only change I made was to use a Nutter Butter crust that another reviewer suggested.
