About this Cook
I am 27 years old and I have 3 beautiful children. Whitney, age 6, Julian, age 5, and Sidney, 2. My life is so busy all the time! In addition to raising my children, I am currently in college working on my Associate in Arts degree and then transferring to the University of South Carolina to get my Bachelors in Early Childhood Education. I also work at a daycare in my free time from home and school!
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook appetizers. I was involved in a women's ministry at my Church last year and that is where I really got passionate about cooking for other people besides my family. All the ladies loved my stuff and now I cook for Church dinners too! I really like baking too! Sweet is Good!!!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I really love cooking my own Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners now. I remember growing up and the family getting together at the Holidays and there was always a beautiful ham or turkey on the table. I used to think, "Gosh I can't wait to grow up and cook that stuff for my family" I'm livin' the dream baby!
My cooking triumphs
I made an 8 course meal for Thanksgiving 2 years ago and I was less than 1 week away from giving birth to my daughter. That was the hardest thing I have ever done...but the food was sooooo good :)
My cooking tragedies
Hmmm...I don't know that I have had a tragedy. I have cooked a few things that I just wasn't crazy about but all in all everything I've cooked as gotten me an A+ from Dad and the kids!

Mom's Chocolate Chip Cookies
This is my absolute favorite cookie recipe! I use cheesecake pudding instead of vanilla sometimes, and those are to DIE for! I also make them sugar free with S/F pudding, Splenda white and brown, and dark chocolate or sugar free chocolate (chunk it up myself). These are always the favorite everywhere I go!

Easy Lemon Cake Cookies with Icing
Sooooo easy! I didn't have lemon cake mix on hand, but I did have butter pecan. I changed the lemon extract to vanilla and that was it. They were FANTASTIC! This was so simple and the cookies were DELISH! Thanks Karla :)

Roasted Chicken Salad Bites
I made these for my women's Bible study group and when the meet was all said and done, I was asked to be on the hospitality committee. I took the leftovers to work the next day and I still have coworkers begging me to make them again...and they got the leftovers! FANTASTIC RECIPE!
