About this Cook
I am currently a young cook, though hopefully soon I will be able to attend culinary school. At the moment I wish to become a pastry chef, though I find whipping up meals of all different kinds to be just as fun.
My favorite things to cook
Though everybody around me constantly asks this question, I am never really able to respond. Decorating cakes and making little confectionaries certainly gets me creative, and I love making creampuffs and other little bites of happiness, but putting together different flavors to make hearty meals really touches my heart.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I really am a Southern girl, and my family has a number of secret recipes that we all simply adore. Mama’s Tea Cakes would definitely be the most popular with everybody, but being our most prized recipe, I am unable to share it with y’all :0)
My cooking triumphs
Very many! The cherry-flavored petit fours I made for a wedding shower recently are the first in my mind!
My cooking tragedies
Also many... I tend to have to make a recipe all the way through before realizing what I could have done better on :'(

Slow Cooker Stuffing
Very good stuffing- and so handy that it cooks in the crockpot. I made this and a cornbread dressing- and my very Southern family enjoied both! I will make this again.

Cheesy Acorn Squash
Ohh, this is a wonderful recipe. Sweet and savory. I didn't use butter because I cooked the onions and celery in pan drippings, just for a little more flavor. Soooo good...

Chocolate Cream Frosting
I was very sceptical of this 'pudding icing', but I made it just minutes ago, and I can tell you, it was just plain YUM!! Its silky smooth and just glossy enough, and this taste is simply wonderful- neither too sweet nor too chocolatey. Thank you so much for this one!
