About this Cook
I'm half Yankee, half Hillbilly, so my tastes run for all the fattening comfort foods like biscuits and gravy, chowders, pies and the like. Just about everything tastes great fried in bacon grease!
My favorite things to cook
Pot roast, beef & gravy over rice, nachos, cake and biscuits. Some times I don't like to cook or bake, but when I long for something particular, nothing else but my own will satisfy my longing.
My favorite family cooking traditions
It just doesn't seem like Christmas without some pies, cookies and other sweet treats like peanut brittle, caramel corn and fudge.
My cooking triumphs
I think anything that tastes good is a triumph.
My cooking tragedies
A fudge cake that turned out horrible because the sugar I used was from sugar beets, not sugar from sugar canes, so the whole thing stayed liquidy and inedible! Now, it would be called molten lava cake! LOL

Butterscotch Pudding I
In all fairness, the flavor was good but the texture was just weird.

Amazing Muffin Cups
I just got these out of the oven a few minutes ago. I have to say, they are very tasty. I did have to use a roll of sausage because I didn't have any links thawed out, though. I also had only put about 1 2/3 cups of shredded colby/jack cheese(it was what I had on hand). I sprinkled a little garlic powder over the potatoes before I mixed in the butter and seasoning for a little extra kick. TIP:I don't know if it was the sausage, the cheese or the butter, or a combination of all three, but there was a lot of grease bubbling over the side of the pan and dripping on the oven bottom, so next time I will use a pan under the muffin pan and I will also use foil cupcake liners, as the potatoes didn't come completely out of the muffin cups.It will make cleanup a lot easier!

Boudreaux's Zydeco Stomp Gumbo
Took others suggestion and cut back the chicken broth to 2 qts, although it was plenty thin even then. Think next time I'll make more roux to thicken it more. I left out the red chile peppers because it was hot enough without it. I love gumbo but the heat does get to me. It's very good though! The local restaurant wants $8 for a bowl. I made the entire soup for what it cost for 2 bowls!
