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...

Easy Granola Bars
These taste great, but I have to keep them in the fridge or they fall apart. So, they're not really portable.

Plum Buckle
I have a ton of plums from my tree and have been searching for recipes to use them up. Well, this one's a keeper! I prepared it exactly as written and it was absolutely delish! Thanks for the great recipe!!

Sweet Restaurant Slaw
A little too sweet for me as written. I only used half the amount of sugar and it turned out great! The family raved and ate it all up!
