About this Cook
My husband loves anything I make. He really appreciates it and would never say a negative thing about anything I make. It makes me want to try new things!
My favorite things to cook
Mexican food, sushi, just about any dessert.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I make my mother's "Trash" at the holidays. It's made with Bugles, rice chex, nuts, etc., but the secret ingredient is bacon grease. Worcestershire sauce and Tobasco sauce make it spicy. It is labor intensive, but it is a holiday tradition and so worth it. No other Trash recipe I've tasted even comes close to how good my mother's recipe is!
My cooking triumphs
After lots of practice, I make an awesome pecan praline, and I've gotten pretty good at sushi rolls. I learned how to make the inside-out rolls from watching YouTube videos! If you like to make rolls and want to make them pretty like the rolls you get in a sushi bar, try YouTube!
My cooking tragedies
My cooking tragedies are mostly my fault. When something has come out wrong, I go back to the recipe and I've done something wrong or left something out.

Cake Balls
I've made many, many batches of these over the years for weddings, showers, Christmas, etc. Yes, it's time consuming, but here are my tips to make it as painless as possible: * After you cook the cake, cool it completely in the fridge before you break it up, then mix in the frosting when it's cold. It doesn't get as gooey and messy this way. * When rolling the balls, lightly spray your hands with cooking spray. It will still build up and you'll have to wash your hands several times during the rolling, but it helps a lot. * Put the rolled balls on paper plates, about a dozen per plate. Stick a toothpick in the center of each ball and freeze completely before rolling. Take the plates out one at a time to dip. They defrost really quick and if they sit out it makes a mess in your chocolate. Dip the balls, wait a minute or two, and when the dipping chocolate has set, pull the toothpick out. It will leave a tiny little hole, very easy to cover. Pull it straight up or it will break off inside. * I have made these as much as a month ahead of time and frozen them and they were awesome. You would never know they had been frozen. Good luck!

Melt - In - Your - Mouth Shortbread
These were very good but a lot of trouble for so few cookies. If I make them again I'll try pressing it into a pan and cutting them into squares. It just takes so long rolling them. But I do love the consistency. The best shortbread I've made.

Swedish Nuts II
Very good and easy. I was using pecans from my pecan tree and didn't know how much a pound was. It's about 3 1/2 cups in case anyone else needs to know!
