About this Cook
I'm a stay at home mom, artist, and love to host parties. We've been on a tight budget for a pretty long time, so I have lots of practice working with very basic ingredients and foods. No TV dinners or powdered mashed potatoes here! :)
My favorite things to cook
Any kind of Thai food, soul food, baked items, pretty much anything that sounds good at the moment. I used to be a vegetarian, but my husband loves meat in everything, so I have a huge challenge cooking something we both like!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I remember watching my grandmother and my mom perfect their many recipes over the years, and I couldn't wait to have a kitchen of my own so I could do the same! Now that I have one I'm in it all the time! :)
My cooking triumphs
Making caramel. :)
My cooking tragedies
I always used to put way too much salt in everything.

Light Wheat Rolls
Oh my goodness... I just took these out of the oven and they're just perfect!! I've never had such light wheat rolls before! I didn't add anything at all to the recipe.. I did use the bread machine to knead the dough, just because it's easier for me. AMAZING!! Going into my recipe box!!
