About this Cook
I am a wife and mother of a tween. I love to bake and make from scratch recipes. I try and have a family sit down dinner every night, something I cherish and think is a dying family value.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake! Anything, cookies, cake, bread...If you can bake it I love it!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I have a carrot cake recipe that has been handed down for 3 generations. Best Carrot Cake on the planet!

J.P.'s Big Daddy Biscuits
I have made this recipe several times now and it is outstanding! I learned from my grandmother that you never knead biscuit dough, just mix it until it comes together and stop; however, the first time I made these I followed that thinking and the first cut busicuts were not nearly as light or raise as much as the second cut biscuts (the biscuits I cut from the dough left over from the first set). Now I wouldn't knead these like you would bread, but I would use the same type of motion, working the dough until it is less sticky and comes together. I get great results every time with these. So tasty and beautiful!

Red Velvet Cupcakes
These are just okay. They look beautiful and I may use this recipe if I only needed "set dressing", but I don't think I will make this again becuase they were only okay...not bad, just no wow! I selected this recipe because I couldn't find buttermilk to make a real red velvet. My first clue should have been the amount of cocoa powder it requested...I normally only use about 2 Tbs, not 1/2 cup, they were also very dense like a poundcake but moist. Once again not a bad thing but not what I look for in a red velvet cupcake. So over all, it tasted average, was too dense and too much cocoa to be a good Red Velvet...but they were very pretty and stayed moist. This might be good for someone just learning how to bake since it was very easy to follow and you could take your time making it.

Banana Muffins II
These are a hit with the family. I did add 1/2 tsp of cinnamon just because my family likes the combo.
