About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
Love to bake & cook things for my diabetic husband. Rather then finding diabetic recipies I've found it best to change regular recipies to worke for him. There is so many great alternatives now like Dreamfield low carb pasta. When I bake with Splenda, no one knows the difference.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Family passed down recipies, those I plan to pass down to my daughters.
My cooking triumphs
Surviving annual 4-H Cake Auction Baking Day for six years with my son. Grenadian Spice Cake was the best!
My cooking tragedies
I was cooking my first thanksgiving dinner for my my new inlaws. Everything was absolutely perfect & I was so proud; but pride comes before the fall. It took me a while to figure out that my husband & his dad were putting a lot of cool whip on their pie. The jig was up when my brother in law took his first bite & said "This pie taste like #%*!. I apparently the sugar. My husband thought I would cry, but I only laughed. The whole room filled with laughter; we were all thankful for the laughter and family.

Alan's Pie Crust
Best Pie Crust! I use my food processor to cut in the butter & shortning and then add the water. One hint: Chill your water & shortening. Otherwise perfect!

Fresh Southern Peach Cobbler
Made this fabulous dessert with my diabetic husband in mind for a church gathering. I used regular Splenda & Splenda Brown Sugar in place of the sugars, and served with sugar free ice cream. My husband couldn't get enough, and the non-diabetics loved it!
