About this Cook
I love to expermiment making new dishes. my family is always "accusing" me of making "exotic" foods that are soooo fancy.
My favorite things to cook
I have a huge sweet tooth so I love to bake. I have a weakness for cakes or cookies. I love to give food items for gifts during the holiday. I really look forward to the holiday season just so I can make some tried and true recipes as well as discover new ones
My favorite family cooking traditions
My background is a deep southern traditional way of cooking.
My cooking triumphs
I get requests for the recipes of some of the things I make and a lot of complements.
My cooking tragedies
I still have some misses with my baking. For example some times my cakes come out soooo dry

Cucumber Lemonade
I did use the minute maid 15 calorie bottled lemonade along with diet sprite. It was truly refreshing. Dp make in advance to allow the flavors to meld

Refreshing Summer Cucumber Lemonade
Due to some diet restrictions I made a few slight changes. I used diet sierra mist and splenda instead. It was a huge hit. I would highly recommend making in advance and allow to sit in the refrigerator to allow the flavors to meld. I did not buy enough I ran out it was such a huge hit

Cheese Fondue
I followed other's advice and used a vegetable broth instead of white wine, next time I will use the white wine when the kids are not here I also followed the other's advice and mixed the flour with the cheese prior to melting. I did cook on the stove top for a bit and then added to the fondue pot. For a truly special dish invest in the real cheese it will be worth it.
