About this Cook
I am married to a wonderful guy and I have a 5 yr old daughter and a 3 yr old son. I am a biology professor at Lindsey Wilson College and I love my job!
My favorite things to cook
Baking is my favorite, but I also enjoy ethnic foods and good ol' Southern cookin'!! I enjoy gardening but that ties into cooking.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My grandmother was a FABULOUS Southern cook and had a resturant. I can remember watching the cooks work and being facinated. Both of my aunts went into the food industry.
My cooking triumphs
Making my 1st layer cake at age 10. Pork tenderloin w/ port & cranberry sauce, fried chicken, chocolate pie and many family favs.
My cooking tragedies
There have been many!! Cooking is like science, you modify and try again!!
