About this Cook
I love to feed people and fortunately I'm surrounded by people that love to eat. My husband, son, best friend, and a few select others proudly display their 'testament' to me in the form of excess poundage :) 'Diet' is not a menu option around here.
My favorite things to cook
Gumbo, gravies, roast pork and beef, spaghetti, manicotti, breads and rolls, cakes, cookies, banana pudding. I love to cook the foods that my friends and family love to eat - even if it is something I've never made before.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We don't really have so-called "traditions" at our house, however, I treasure the times that my son and I cook together. Even if it is just a simple weeknight meal, I love to teach him 'tricks of the trade'.
My cooking triumphs
A friend from work is expecting a baby in Aug '08. For her baby shower, she asked for a Strawberry Cake that she had once from a bakery in Ft. Smith, AR. Based on her description of the cake, I utilized AllRecipes.Com to research and compare recipes for Strawberry Cake until I found the perfect recipe. I made this cake as a "trial run" a few weeks before the actual baby shower and everyone loved it, including my pregnant friend. This is the recipe I used: Strawberry Cake and Frosting I SUBMITTED BY: IMFLIPER

Southern Butter Rolls
These were the best rolls! I used butter flavor Crisco instead of plain shortening, and created a yeast "foam" separately before combining with the dry ingredients. This recipe is definitely a keeper :)
