Cooking Easter dinner
About this Cook
I'm the proud mother of 3 beautiful kids and wife to an incredible husband. I have always loved to cook (even as a child) and it's one of my favorite ways to show people that I love them.
My favorite things to cook
I like to try recipes from different regions around the world. I also love to bake. I especially love to make special cakes for birthdays.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Both grandma's have a cake recipe that's amazing. My mom's green chile grits casserole at Thanksgiving and her chicken n dumplins. My dad's fried chicken is the only fried chicken I like, and I still can't beat his french's the best.
My cooking tragedies
Umm...well there's a few things I've tried that weren't big hits with the family, but I will always remember the time I forgot to add sugar to some pumpkin chocolate chip muffins. :D

Sugar and Spice Bacon
We make this bacon, but haven't ever used the flour...just sprinkle on the brown sugar and pepper. I love that you cook this in the oven. It's so much easier that way! (Spread a piece of foil on the cooking sheet for even easier clean up!)

BBQ Chicken Pizza I
Although I liked the flavor of the cilantro on this pizza, I thought the sauce was too sweet. I would cut back on the sugar and honey quite a bit. I like my BBQ sauce to be bold and tangy!

Easy Key Lime Pie I
Everyone loved this! The first time I made it, I used bottled key lime juice and the second time I used real key limes. Both turned out great, but using real key limes gives it quite a kick. Depending on your tastes, you might want to use less real lime juice or a little more condensed milk. Wonderful recipe!

Something about the grill's heat brings out the best flavor in the simplest chicken recipe.
