About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
Anything that at least 3 out of the 4 will eat without wrinkling up their nose.
My cooking triumphs
I made 115lbs of pulled pork, lemon cake, coleslaw, pasta salad, and pineapple pretzel fluff all from recipes I got off this site for my son's graduation party. They all turned out great and I had requests for the recipes. Yeah!!
My cooking tragedies
I made 2 pecan pies for Thanksgiving years ago and was planning to send one home with my uncle. When I started making the filling, I was distracted for a few minutes. When I came back to it, the crust was thawed out a little and being new to cooking, I didn't know if it would make a difference so I put it back in the freezer and pulled out the other. The rest of the baking process went smoothly and the pie we ate was great. Unfortunately, as I was giving the other to my uncle as he left, he noticed someting poking out of the pie. It was the wax paper that separated the two pie shells. We still laugh about it and it's been probably 10-12 years now. I think he said he ate the filling over ice cream so wasn't a total waste. Lesson learned: if you are going to try to pass off a store bought pie crust as your own, remove the wax paper.

Fresh Strawberry Upside Down Cake
Taste great and was very moist. Mine didn't turn out so pretty but I think that's because I didn't have a flat platter and didn't center it very well so it kind of crunched up. But who cares?!!! I wasn't entering it in an art competition. We gobbled it up so fast that no one would have known if it had looked pretty to begin with! I will definitely make it again!

Guy Approved Meatloaf
Like many, I have a very picky family. My son and I loved this meatloaf. My husband isn't a big fan of BBQ flavor and my daughter turned up her nose before trying it. I put sauce under bacon, and cheddar cheese on top. I'll make it again for my son and me and the picky ones can eat grilled cheese:)
