About this Cook
I am 32, from Iowa-relocated from Alabama in '90 but Iowa is my true love! It is so friendly here. I am married w/2 boys ages 11 and 7. I work full time and cook/bake in my spare time!
My favorite things to cook
I LOVE southern food! I call it SOUL food! Gosh I love it..I also am a big fan of mexican dishes. Not big on sweets but bake them for the rest of the family.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanksgiving-dressing is a FAVE! I am tweaking up my dishes now so I can be in A1 shape come the holidays! For Xmas is about the same as Thanksgiving! Collard greens w/hambones, cornbread, ham or turkey, creamed corn, dressing and cranberry sauce.
My cooking triumphs
Homemade creamed corn, making a Xmas tree shaped cake, and cooking a turkey
My cooking tragedies

Grandma's Lemon Meringue Pie
I am disappointed in the Meringue..mine was whipped like recipe stated. By hand. I am used to recipes stating to 'beat' so I didn't beat...maybe I was suppose to? Pretty disappointed in the meringue...need suggestions.
