After reading another bloggers story concerning  “Sunday Dinners” I began thinking back to memories of my childhood.  My parents divorced when I was 2 years old.  I don’t remember them being together so the divorce didn’t immediately have an effect on me.   As the years… MORE

So you see the name of my blog is “Biscuits don’t always come from a can?”.   The reason being that as successful a baker as I have been in the past the one thing that has always annoyed me is I couldn’t make a homemade biscuit for the life of me.   No matter how many… MORE

Growing up in the south I got a real taste for southern cuisine.  My family cooked the usual traditional southern recipes such as pinto beans, cornbread, turnip greens...usually all three with a little or a lot of bacon fat thrown in.  The smells of my grandmother and mother's… MORE

About Me
I am a happily married stay at home mom. I love spending time with my husband whether it is just staying at home watching movies or going out shopping. I love to cook and try new recipes. My husband is a very picky eater and he doesn't eat much of a variety. I mainly cook for myself since my daughter is less than a year old so I enjoy making recipes that are small so there is not much waste.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake cookies, cakes and other sweet treats but I try to avoid making too many because I want to eat too much of them! :) I am also an avid bread maker and enjoy trying out new bread recipes. I also love tex-mex and italian recipes. Lately I have been experimenting with new seasonings.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My favorite memories are those of baking around the holidays when I was a child. My grandmother would always make the best pies for Thanksgiving and Christmas. My mother made the best Turkey and Dressing and Scallopped Potatoes that are to die for. I still enjoy cooking around the holidays. I can't wait until my little one(s) are old enough to help me in the kitchen and start our own family traditions.
My cooking triumphs
Everytime I make a recipe that turns out great I consider that a triumph. So I have many triumphs in the kitchen.
My cooking tragedies
Recently it was cooking a hamburger and it looked perfectly done on the outside but was raw inside. Yuck!
