About this Cook
I was born in MS, spent 5 years in Yellowstone, but mostly grew up just outside of Los Angeles. I wasn't much of a cook until I moved back to MS and was surrounded by my Grammma and all her country cooking and recipes that she had stored in her head. I have two boys that are picky eaters so I spend a lot of time trying to find new recipes that they will eat. I love to try new recipes and share them with friends. All Recipes is my absolute fav web site. My 11 year old laughs because I can spend hours here.
My favorite things to cook
My favorite thing to cook is soulfood and desserts. I love any kind of cake or cookie. And any time I can find a crock pot recipe is a good day!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My son had never had s'mores. So I got out some bamboo skewers and lit a candle to "roast" marshmallows on. Now it's his fav way to eat them! Roasted by candle light lol.

Cheesy Sausage Pasta
I made this for dinner last night and even my super picky 11 year old had seconds! It is very very good! The only changes I made was to brown the sausage first and then add the veggies. I also used a Vidalia onion, Green Bell Pepper, and Mozzerella cheese. I also used one can Chunky Ro-tel instead of stewed tomatoes whch gave it a spicy kick! Also used about 10 oz pasta instead of 16. Great Recipe, fast and easy, and will be used again!

Salmon Patties II
Being from the South, my Mammaw, Aunts, and Momma have made this recipe for as long as I have been breathing. We eat them for breakfast with pancake syrup.

Cake Balls
I made these for a work BBQ. They were a huge success, and so easy to make. I used funfetti cake mix and chocolate funfetti frosting. I froze the cake\frosting mixure and then rolled them in melted chocolate chips. I sprinkled them with I'll the "funfetti" Then stored them in the fridge. They were good cold, but even better at room temp. I try a white cake \ strawberry frosting combo next.
