About this Cook
I love to bake and cook using Rachael Ray's products. They're the best! The most important things to me are: strong family, positive friends, religious faith. I love photography and traveling! "Surround yourself with positive people. It's healthy."
My favorite things to cook
My favorite things to bake are lots of desserts! I'm best at sweets like banana pudding, peach cobbler, sweet potato pie, apple butterscotch pie, 7 up cake, chocolate cake, carrot cake, red velvet cake, strawberry cake, and cheesecakes. Next, macaroni and cheese. Lastly, ziti and lasagna.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Before my grandmother passed, every Friday she would prepare dinner for the family. She would make us fried fish, collard greens, cornbread, and sweet potato pie. I miss her company. My favorite Friday dish: fried fish, seasoned, crinkled french fries and cole slaw.
My cooking triumphs
I love when I prepare food and it's gone in no time. This means that it was really good! I have experienced this with many of my desserts. It's a good feeling to soothe the soul with good food and spend time with the people that you love.
My cooking tragedies
I made some brownies that I left in the oven too long. I only needed to bake them for 20 minutes. I left them in the oven for 30 minutes. Needless to say, they were hard as a rock.

World's Best Lasagna
The best lasagna! This is really good! I did not use as much salt and altered very few things.

Versatile Chicken Salad
Versatile Chicken Salad

Pile it into a tomato half, load it into a wrap, or spread it on bread. Chicken salad does it all.

Broccoli salad makes a great side dish or a light main dish on a warm night.
