About this Cook
I am a mother of two kids( three if you want to count my husband lol). I have been cooking for some time now, I have three younger brothers I have had to cook for and I absolutely love it!!!!!! I am always looking for new and exciting recipes for entertaining guests.
My favorite things to cook
I love cooking seafood,desserts, and southern food. Currently I am trying to expand my knowledge in decorating cakes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
i would have to say a favorite family tradition is when we all get together for thanksgiving and everyone brings their own dish, I usaully do the desserts and my family always request that I make pumpkin bread, apple pie (I have a special ingredient for my crust), and rice pudding all of which they cant seem to get enough of!
My cooking triumphs
The one thing that I take pride in making is my homemade pasta sauce. I try to make this sauce as much as I possibly can. I went through many types of recipes before I finally perfected one that I tweeked to my own specifications. It is an all day process, because i like to let it slow cook all day, But it is defiantly worth the wait. This pasta sauce has become an household favorite!
My cooking tragedies
I have had so many I need time to sit down and think about which one was actually the worst!

Banana Cream Frosting
I used others people's suggestions and cut back on the amount of milk and the frosting came out perfect!!!! It's light, and airy and full of banana flavor. I am using this frosting on my banana cake recipe, I can not wait to try it on my cake.(I always make my cakes the day before and let the ingredients settle before adding my filling) This recipe is definitely a keeper. Thank you so much for sharing such an easy, great tasting recipe. My only regret is that I can not give it more stars!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Brie Cheese Appetizer
I am always looking for new ways to and prepare Brie Cheese( it is my absolute favorite!!!!!)I used another person suggestion in the reviews and used crescent rolls instead of the puff pastry, used apple butter for the filling and after putting egg wash on the outside I topped it with honey. THIS ONE OF THE BEST CHEESE APPETIZER RECIPES THAT I HAVE EVER HAD!!!!!! I did have a little bit of leakage, but end result was still terrific. thank you so much for this recipe I will be using it time and time again!!!!!!

Sweet Dinner Rolls
i had been searching for days for the perfect dinner roll recipe, and i am pleased to say that i have found it! this recipe is easy, fast and delicious. i do not have a bread machine so i followed another person suggestion with using a stand mixer. I made clover rolls and right before baking them i drizzled each with honey and butter, my family loved them. i will be using this recipe again!!!!!
