About this Cook
I am a 34 year old mother of two boys. I am a professional author who loves living in the country, talking to my boys and playing with my cat Dixie and dog Eddie!

My favorite foods to cook are all italian foods and southern foods.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom is the best southern cook I know so I love to cook good southern meals like Salisbury steak, mashed potatos, green beans, and apple pie desserts
My cooking triumphs
I can make a great biscuit from scratch and some really good meatballs. I can also make Gods gift to broccoli casseroles!

Cabbage Beef Soup
This is a GREAT recipe. My husband and I love cabbage but there are only certain ways we really like it cooked. This is perfect, and very versatile if you choose to add particular ingredients you enjoy! I use a couple of cans of homemade stewed tomatoes!

Peking Pork Chops
I love this dish! My husband, who hates asian food, loves this as well. No change in the recipe, nothing to do besides mix the ingredients, leave it and come back when its done! Perfect slow cooker food!
