About this Cook
I LOVE to cook. I love to read about cooking. My boyfriend thinks I am crazy because I can't make the usual stuff, I am always trying new recipes. But it keeps cooking fun!
My favorite things to cook
Desserts. More notably, chocolate desserts. However, I cook mainly meals without desserts. So when it comes to having a party, I go all out and bake a few beautiful and scrumptious items!
My favorite family cooking traditions
As a child I loved waking up on a holiday morning to the smell of wonderful goodness. The air was alive with the aroma of turkeys, hams, potato salads, oyster stuffing and gravy, bourbon balls and lemon pies. I took for granted my mom slaving in front of the stove for a full 24 hours+ before the holiday meal was served to make the 2 hour meal memorable. I try to pass my comforting memory of this to my adorable nephews by doing the same. I am always encouraging them to taste this or help stir a pot--just as my mother did. I beam when a 9, 8 or 3 year old little boy tells me I make the best something or another. My critics tastes aren't as advanced as the food editors of The New York Times, but I can assure you they are much more brutally honest!
My cooking triumphs
Years ago when I first started to cook, I found a recipe for a cappuccino fudge cheesecake that is not only delicious but is absolutely beautiful. Every time I make it I get rave reviews, with many people thinking I bought it at a bakery. This was my first item that looked so professionally done! (And still is my only).
My cooking tragedies
Oh my, I have prepared plenty of meals that just were down right not good. But luckily I have never had flames coming from my oven, smoke detectors alerting ADT or people vomiting from my creations. yet.

Pineapple Pretzel Salad
made this for my art ladies--they devoured it. Lighter in flavor than the strawberry variety-- a nice change of pace in the warmer months

Cheddar Bay Biscuits
Megan's recipe. Very good. Would add a bit more salt-- maybe use garlic salt instead of garlic powder.

Slow-Cooker Barbecue Ribs
WOW! I had to put this on for close to 10 hours (work!) and when I got home, these ribs were the most tender, delectable ribs ever!. I did the oven and sauce part the night before, put it together in the crockpot and then put in the fridge until morning. In the morning, all I had to do was drop the pot in the slow cooker. super easy. Might try this method with a store bought recipe of your choosing, if you need to get rid of bbq sauce. Even my brother-in-law loved the recipe so much he called to thank me for sending him a plate over. Will definitely be making again!
