About this Cook
Hi! I have always been drawn to good food! I grew up in a southern home in rural Kentucky where everything revolved around food, and my grandmother's and my mother were some of the best cooks in this area! I am a social worker, divorced, with one son. I have one sister, one brother,and three nephews and one niece.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook pasta of any kind! Its my favorite food ever! I love to cook new things that no one else is brave enough to try. My specialty is main dishes and appetizers. I'm not the best baker ever!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Recently, all my traditions have changed since my mother past away in October 2010. We will be starting new traditions as the years go on.
My cooking triumphs
I make the best homemade veggie soup! People ask me to make it all the time. My deviled eggs are always a hit, as I am ask to bring them all the time. When parties or get togethers come around, people always say,"oh just bring anything, it's always good!"
My cooking tragedies
Candy. Hands down. I just simply can't get it right! Oh! Once, when I was pregnant, our power went out for days on end, my sister in law and I had our families in one house, we were cooking on a camping stove, the only one within miles, we had people come for food, and well, our pancake batter was wearing thing, I simply though I could add flour and it would be okay, come to find out, "flourcakes" and syrup are NOT good!
