About this Cook
I am an almost 40 year old woman who is very blessed with an amazing husband,3 wonderful children and two loving dogs. My hobby is scrapbooking.I also love writing poems and even tho cooking is far from a hobbie of mine I do enjoy it most of the time.I love spending quality time with my family playing games,traveling,site seeing,shopping,going to amusement parks and zoos,and anything else that is fun. We love to entertain having parties,cook outs,teas,and socials.
My favorite things to cook
I enjoy finding recipes on this site,cooking them,and leaving reviews.We add certain ones to our family cookbook to become traditional family dishes. For a while now we rarely have a repeater due to the fact we are trying new ones almost every day. My husband is also loving this adventure and will be whipping up dishes from the grill since he is the GRILL KING! No one can handle a grill like he can and that is one of the highlights of his life. Between he and I no wonder why we have gained 40 lbs since we got married. Next Don't be suprised to see our names hitting the Healthy Cooking section before long...LOL
My favorite family cooking traditions
Our daughter always helps bake cakes and cookies for birthdays,Fathers Day,Mothers Day,and any celebration we have if we choose not to go to a bakery for. On the Holidays we always make a lot of goodies at home and she gets in on all that. The older she gets the more she can do. Now our 2 year old son is starting to get in on the action and he loves it as well. They love tasting as they go as well.
My cooking tragedies
Meatloaf!!!! Any and all kinds. :( Not good with baked garlic bread either. I did get the idea to fry the bread on the stove top in garlic and butter. I do that wonderfully well.

Old Time Kentucky Bacon Milk Gravy for Biscuits
I grew up with this gravy as well. I and my mom and my mom's family came from the mountains of good 'ol KY. This recipe is the old original mountain milk gravy my mom was taught to make by her mom. My mom was a coal miners daughter living 2 coal camps down from Loretta Lynn.As a child I was always taught to keep the grease that came off the bacon back because we always used it for cooking. Green beans,biscuits,cornbread,greens,fried cabbage,ect....I don't cook with it as much now learning just how unhealthy it is for my family and myself,but now and then I do go with those yummy home cooked meals from way back. This is awesome and you will love it.

Cincinnati Chili I
I grew up with this dish called three ways. My dad was from Cincinnati so i say this is a real dish of the City. We would just get a good brand of canned chili or left over chili and go from there. It is always yummy.

Sweet and Sour Sauce I
Awesome recipe. I doubled the recipe and used 1/2 Cup of brown sugar and 1 Cup of white sugar. I used pineapple juice in place of the water and 1/2 Cup of ketchup. Turned out awesome. This is a keeper.
