Hello AR Friends!! I think Spring may be here, at least it has been for the last couple days, beautiful sunshine and almost 70 degrees!  We worked out in the yard and it looks like humans live here again instead of piggys :)  Now, if the azaleas would just bloom I'd be in… MORE

About this Cook
I grew up in Stockton, CA and then lived most of my 1st married life in Lemoore, CA. We raised our 3 boys (twins and one more 20 months later)up together but when the youngest son graduated from high school, I realized life was too short to stay in an unhappy, dead marriage. After 23 years, a divorce and a new life. I moved to the Biloxi, MS area and met my wonderful husband now. He is all I could ask for. We have a kitty and a camper and we love them both! She camps with us all the time. I quit my job in August, '08 and my husband is retired (again) so we are enjoying our time together. ***UPDATE*** I'm working again and really liking my job. I don't have to bring it home with me and it's 32 hours per week, which works out perfect. Very happy to report that we are very happy again with a new job!!!
My favorite things to cook
My new favorite is finding low fat, healthy recipes to try. I'm really up for anything to cook.. it's truly my hobby.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Right now I would have to say that having a fish fry is the closest thing to a tradition I have. Not healthy but it sure is good! Fried fresh caught fish, hushpuppies, okra, french fries. All deep fried and all soooo good!!
My cooking triumphs
Beef Tenderloin With Roasted Shallots from this site. I served it to guests and they could not believe that this was a home made meal. For something so easy it's the best meal I've ever made. Also feel very good about my submitted recipes. I'm not one to usually make something up but I like to follow recipes and then maybe make a few tweaks to our liking and needs.
My cooking tragedies
HAHA - It still makes me laugh. My very first meal I cooked for my 1st husband was supposed to be eggs, bacon and pancakes but the skillet I tried to use was not a non-stick. Needless to say.. we had scrambled eggs, torn up bacon, and worst of all, scrambled pancakes.

Buttermilk Cinnamon Rolls
These are delicious. I used my bread machine for the 1st 1/2 hour, took the dough out after 1/2 hour and spread it out, put the butter/sugar/cinnamon inside and then placed in pan, let rise 1/2 hour. Quick and very good tasting. I'll make these again for sure.

Egg and Hash Brown Casserole
I used ham in mine and used the fresh hashbrowns. I really liked the way the potatoes cooked and then adding the eggs, cheese, milk and green onions with the ham. I'll make this again with left over raw hashbrowns.

Cherry Enchiladas
These were delicious. A bit too sweet for me but they were a hit at the BBQ. I didn't have cherry pie filling so I made my own pineapple pie filling from a recipe here on AR. Then followed the rest of the recipe. Very tasty and easy to make. I only had 4 hours to let it sit in the fridge but I think they were just fine. I did have to bake them for 50 minutes to get the crispy golden crust. I'd make these again.
