About this Cook
Married mother of 2, step-mother of 3. Physician Assistant, marathon runner, voracious reader.
My favorite things to cook
"Traditional" Sunday dinners. Breads, rolls, cookies, pies.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I was raised in the north and married a southern boy. It has taken 25 years to meld our heritages, but now I can fix a mean okra dish and he can appreciate some of the Italian flavor I grew up enjoying.
My cooking triumphs
I love it when my sons' friends come over to eat! (They are in high school and college.) I have baked cookies every Saturday for years. Seriously. Sometimes, their friends will come by even when the boys aren't home, just for something to eat...the deal we've made is that in return, they can rake my leaves when I am an old lady!
My cooking tragedies
When I was first learning to make a pie crust, I bought a big bag of flour and a big can of shortening. My husband kept the kids outside while I "practiced". Hours later, I had finally figured it out, and the kids never had to witness my numerous tantrums!

Bread Pudding with Whiskey Sauce III
Scaled this down to 8 servings, soaked the golden raisins in Jack Daniels over night before making, used dark corn syrup for the sauce (along with the aforementioned Jack Daniels. Omigosh....I won't change a thing....

Big Soft Ginger Cookies
Loved the texture....followed the instructions exactly but "heaped" the measures when adding the spices. Wish I would have added more. They were really good, but I wanted just a bit more ginger-y taste.

Spicy Shrimp and Grits
Followed the recipe, except I didn't add any salt, and I sprinkled the shrimp mixture with some creole seasoning as it cooked. Served it separately, rather than as a casserole, and it was wonderful!
