About this Cook
Hi! On the profile I had to put professional cook. I am a professional cake decorator and I am a Pantry Chef but not a cook per se. For those who do not know, Pantry Chef is salads, appetizers and desserts. I'm 53 and a grandmother of TEN! Nine of them are boys!
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook enchilladas and Lasagne. Also southern quisine such as chicken & dumplings and Gumbo. I make wedding cakes and birthday cakes. My latest is a baby shower cake, 3 tiers and jungle theme. And cookie bouquets.
My favorite family cooking traditions
For Thanksgiving and Christmas I have to fix my bacon salad. My boys would never forgive me if I didn't. Along with traditional dishes I fix finger foods too. Lots of appetizers.
My cooking triumphs
My latest is Mustard geens! Fry up bacon with garlic then add a little evoo. Then start adding geens to skillet and cook down until bright green color. Season to taste add a can of new potatos Voilla! I was shocked at how delicious they were. I don't like greens. I do now!
My cooking tragedies
When I was sixteen I made cookies and got confused. I put in corn starch for baking powder. They were hard as a rock and tasted horrible.

Olive Balls
I made this recipe for Christmas this year. I took them to my in laws and got good reviews from them. They all seemed to like it and two asked for the recipe. I added garlic and a little red pepper to the cream cheese. Also, if you get the cream cheese very hard in the refrigerator it will wrap around the olives without being messy. Just make sure you drain and dry olives first.

Waldorf Astoria Cake Frosting
Best white frosting I have ever made. Easy to spread and very tasty. I use this for all wedding cakes unless called for fondant.
