About this Cook
I am a married working mom with little time to spare, who loves quick, easy dishes with a southern flair.
My favorite things to cook
Anything in a crockpot, appetizers, deserts, southern dishes, and my Grandma's chicken noodles.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I have only a few dishes handed down in the family, but love to make my Grandmother's noodles, and several of my mom's best dishes, too.
My cooking triumphs
1)Grilling swordfish, and convincing my VERY picky child it was chicken. 2)Pureeing veggies so the kids don't know what they are eating. 3)Coming up with new twists on favorite dishes so that my family never gets bored with my cooking.
My cooking tragedies
I have two... 1) I made spaghetti for my new husband on our honeymoon. When I didn't make enough sauce, he informed me that "his momma didn't make it like that". I informed him he needed to go talk to his momma, then! lol (It was pretty bad sauce!) 2)I was in a hurry, and decided to make my own version of Tuna helper for my son and husband. It was so disgusting. My cherished ones took one good look, one good sniff and headed straight for McDonald's! They wouldn't touch it.

Lemon Cake with Lemon Filling and Lemon Butter Frosting
I am rating this as only 3 because the cake was so flat that I would have needed 3 or 4 of them to make a 4 layered cake. The filling, however, is phenomenal! I threw out the scratch cakes, used 2 yellow cake mixes with 1 cup of sour cream and 1 package of lemon pudding each, then layered those. I used the lemon filling in the middle, and strawberry jam stirred to filling consistency as the filling for the other 2 layers. Topped the cake with butter icing recipe provided and decorated with strawberries... was a HUGE hit!

Chocolate Cavity Maker Cake
This is wonderful! I didn't have the liqueur, so I substituted with 1 3/4 TBSP raspberry flavoring with water to make the 1/2 cup, and it gave a wonderful raspberry chocolate flavor. YUM! Thanks for the recipe!

Meatloaf Muffins
HUGE family hit! I used ground turkey, and cream of mushroom soup. I topped the muffins with the same soup instead of ketchup. I also used dried minced onions. My kids loved it- so easy and very filling comfort food! Thanks for sharing!
