My Birthday Cake
About this Cook
I would say I'm more the 'Paula Deen' type rather than 'Martha.' I love to cook for a crowd more than just for me. I use to watch my mother cook but did very little of it until I got married. I really learned on my own and testing it out on him. I am widowed and love for the kids and grandchildren to come so I can cook for them.
My favorite things to cook
Southern food, Mexican quisine and desserts.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Mexican buffet on Christmas Eve.
My cooking triumphs
Best of Show at Texas South Plains Fair for my coffee cake.
My cooking tragedies
OH! So many!

Seminole Pumpkin Bread
This recipe is for a fry why is there a picture of a LOAF of bread??? It is NOT made that way in the recipe directions, either. The Indian Fry Bread is made by frying, not made in a loaf.

Caramel Pretzel Nut Popcorn
This is addicting! Had a neighbor I gave some to say he couldn't stop eating after starting. I fixed him more! Very good snack mix!

Poor Man's Chicken Fried Steak
This rather reminds me of the meat pattie DQ uses for their DQ Dude sandwich. Not bad at all. Kids love it! Wouldn't change a thing on it. Try it on a hamburger bun with mayo, lettuce and tomato.
