About this Cook
Im 40, grateful and happy with the soul of a 90 year old, the energy of a 9 year old and a partner that I will never ever deserve. I spent 39 years in a big city and finally my cuppeth runneth over and over and over. I had enough. I now live in a very small southern town, I gave all my suits away, I drive a pick up truck, I plant roses, I call my mom and dad often, I drink good rich coffee in the cool mornings and robust merlot in the evenings. I talk to my neighbors, let their dogs jump up to greet me, and leave them only when they are done talking. Most of all, I give thanks each day for my partner, my life and for this AWESOME site!!
My favorite things to cook
Anyting with a strong flavor. Love spice, heat, etc. I love small meals that have so much punch that you are filled on flavor rather than quantity.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom cooked all day. It seemed like no matter what time of day it was, you could walk in our house and you were lifted by the aroma of something that would make you a better person for having eaten it. I love to do that. I love that there is always something in cooking in my kitchen. When you enter my home, you know you're welcome and that you've come to a good place.
My cooking triumphs
That I will accept, I have never had anyting but triumphs. Nothing is beyond repair if I just stop for a moment, think about what I was making, think again about what I am making now and put it into a casserole. Nearly everything can be salvaged with a pie crust, some eggs and a crumb topping. If its really different, I just make a delightful dessert and call it all gourmet.
My cooking tragedies
I have screwed up everything you can imagine in the kitchen and I have expected my family to eat each one with glee!! I DO NOT throw away and restart, I just give it a new name and pretend it was supposed to be that way. Thankfully, all those mistakes have paid off and my meals usually come out pretty good. To me, absolutely NOTHING says "I love you" like a meal.

Sweet Corn Cake
Absolutely Fabulous!!! Simple, yet elegant enough to accompany the most formal of meals. Thank you so much for sharing. Ive served this many times with many dishes and although it is made exactly the same each time, it seems to get the best response when served with a spicy dish like chili or spicy BBQ.

Seafood Newburg
I made this recipe in about 5 was terribly easy and quite tasty. As commented earlier, it is very important to cook off the flour with butter until there is no longer a flour taste otherwise you have a tasty watery buscuit mix. I didnt particularly care for the taste of ketchup so next time, i will look for alternatives but the consistency and flavor (other than ketchup) was superb. You make dinner quick and easy....thank you for sharing

Heavenly Shortbread
Amazing recipe...I used a cutter to make perfect rounds and when they first came out, I brushed the them with a mixture of light caro syrup 75% and hot water 25% and sprinkled with a little sugar. I love them plain and sweet...thanks for the great recipe. My partner is british and said they are the better than any he's ever had...including in England and Scotland
