About this Cook
I'm a stay at home mom of 2 teen girls...ugh! ;) I love to cook, read, garden and treasure hunt at thrift stores. I'm also an animal lover with 2 dogs and a cat.
My favorite things to cook
Comfort food is my all time favorite to cook...but I also love to make things that people would normally just buy like tortillas or refried beans. I also love vintage recipes and I actually collect vintage cookbooks.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My grandmother grew up in the south and I got my love of cooking from her. I like to use her old recipes.
My cooking triumphs
I think that baking bread completely from scratch was a big deal for me. I was really intimidated by that for some reason.
My cooking tragedies
I like to try new recipes all the time, especially from this site. Sometimes things just don't go my way the first time...

Spaghetti Pie II
This recipe is a fun spin on spaghetti night. It's a versatile recipe that's easy to adjust with what you have on hand. I've made it from scratch and from leftovers. I've added the cottage cheese and left it out. It's seems to turn out tasty no matter what I do.

Master Pizza Dough
This was easy and did the job...but it was a little bland. Next time I'll add some garlic powder and italian seasoning to flavor it up a bit.
