About this Cook
I'm an old fashion southern girl at heart - you can take the girl out of the south, but you can't take the drawl out of the girl! There's nothing better than a big ol' pig-pickin party and a big mason jar full of southern sweet tea in the middle of summer! (I sure miss that here in Nevada!) I work for a leading Architectural firm in Las Vegas, NV; and run an animal rescue with my partner. Y'all stop by anytime!
My favorite things to cook
Holiday dinners, chicken & dumplings, and meatloaf.
My favorite family cooking traditions
A big traditional Thanksgiving dinner with all the trimmings!
My cooking triumphs
I won a cooking contest once for best dessert. The main rule was it had to be purple, so I decided on a bundt cake with a chocolate glaze. I used frosting dye on the cake so it was a brilliant purple, but hidden by the glaze. I decorated it by filling the hole with black berries and raspberries - got first place!
My cooking tragedies
Lets just say I've burned my share!

Best Butternut Squash Soup Ever
This soup was awesome! I did not have any Thyme, I used an entire squash (which I roasted first to bring out flavor and ease of peeling), added an apple and 1 can of evaporated milk. It got rave reviews from my guest - thanks for the recipe!
