Cooking with my best helper...
About this Cook
I love to cook for my family and friends - there is nothing more fun that filling special requests! I work around food, come home and cook, and spend time planning meals all the time. I love to cook and my hubby and son love to eat!
My favorite things to cook
Cookies, anything that I serve with tea, and cheese straws. And as a Southern cook, I love to bake a mean biscuit and top it with my own muscadine preserves.
My favorite family cooking traditions
The Thanksgiving bird and gravy, Christmas morning breakfast, birthday cakes, hot chocolate and cookies every winter evening, and my mama's gingerbread cookies.
My cooking triumphs
Being asked to bring my Chocolate Cake to every church get-together.
My cooking tragedies
A birthday cake that fell apart the day of the party... Not fun to replace last minute...

Gluten-Free Strawberry Shortcake
Very easy recipe! I had to modify since I didn't have everything on hand. I used 2 cups of King Arthur's GF All Purpose Baking Mix rather than mix all the flours and starches together... And then I used coconut oil in place of the shortening. VERY GOOD. I started tasting it while it was still warm and it was hard to stop! :) I made this for my hubby's birthday cake and he loved it.

Pumpkin Pancakes with Nutmeg Whipped Cream
OK, Let me preface this by saying I am NOT one of those folks who's usually going to change a recipe and then review it according to my changes, BUT I wanted to make this SOOOO bad and have to follow a Gluten Free Diet, so here goes! I made this using King Arthur Flour's Gluten Free Pancake Mix. Using that, I could see by the box that I might need a bit more liquid than was called for in this recipe, so I upped the pumpkin to 2/3 cup. WOWWWEEEE!!! WHAT A GREAT PANCAKE!!! This stuff was AWESOME. Cooked up SO easy, PERFECT consistency, and totally cured this GF Girl's craving for a short stack. THANK YOU! for a great base recipe for me. :)

Chicken and Corn Chili
I literally had all the ingredients in my slow cooker in 7 minutes flat... WOW. Now THAT is a quick meal. And this chili is SOOOOO good stuffed into tortillas with some lettuce and sour cream. Heavenly! Thank you, Sarah Jane, for such a great quick meal. Perfect for this busy working woman!
