About this Cook
I'm just a girl that loves to make people happy with food!! I strive to cook and bake as well as my mom!! I usually go to her for my favorite family recipes but occasionally she will ask me for some and I am always so pleased when she does.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook anything that turns out good!! I love baking too...I have a sweet tooth and love finding new recipes for goodies!!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My favorite family recipe is my great aunt's peanut brittle. I make this mostly during the holidays and people love it!! I have even gotten people who don't like peanut brittle comment that it is so good!! This is not a recipe that I share secret!!
My cooking triumphs
I have to say I make a mean lasagna!! This is not something that I grew up with my mom making and I am so proud that this is something I make well!!
My cooking tragedies
I remember trying to duplicate this lemon pepper catfish that my mom had made and ended up over seasoning it!! YUK!! My husband who was my boyfriend at the time was over and we ended up ordering in!!

Brown Sugar Meatloaf
Growing up as a kid, I never really liked meatloaf. So as an adult, I never cooked it. Well, I found myself without any brown gravy for hamburger steak this evening. So, as I pondered on what to make, I figured I'd give my adult self a chance to not like meatloaf. I found this recipe that seemed to have all the ingredients I liked, so I figured I'd give it a whirl with a few minor changes suggested by another reviewer. I used only a 1/4 cup of brown sugar, 1/2 c of milk, 1 c of seasoned bread crumbs and I added some worcestershire sauce to the meat mixture. It turned out great and my kids loved it!! I will definitely be making this again!!

Grandmother's Buttermilk Cornbread
LOVE IT, LOVE IT, LOVE IT!! This is a DELICIOUS recipe!! Perfect for stews, chili, etc. I could hardly wait after I took it out of the oven to try it and I must say that it is going to be very hard to stay out of it until dinner time!! Thanks so much!!

Grilled Cheese Sandwich
I agree with one reviewer who stated that any grilled cheese deserves 5 stars!! My variations include adding a thin slice of tomato to mine and my husband has me add sliced jalapenos to his!!
