About this Cook
I am a single Mom and I have 3 daughters. I love quick and easy cooking. When I get home from work I need to be able to "serve" within an hour and we need some variety. I don't want to fix the same old - same old every day. Salad and a baked potato out of the microwave gets tiresome. My weekly food dollars are shrinking so, I have to stretch it out and what is easier to disguise than an egg, a potato, rice, and beans?
My favorite things to cook
I love baking the best.
My favorite family cooking traditions
No summer celebration is complete around my family without a glass of fresh squeezed lemonade and a freezer full of homemade ice cream.
My cooking triumphs
I made homemade peach ice cream for a family reunion and my dad told me it was the BEST peach ice cream he had ever eaten. That for me was the best compliment because my Mother is an excellent cook and very difficult to top. But, I finally did it . . . Hooray!!!
My cooking tragedies
While experimenting with food coloring . . . I baked a BLUE cake and covered it in PURPLE icing . . . it looked like a bruise and NOBODY would eat it . . . threw that one away . . . YUCK!!!

Southern Pecan Pie I
Didn't turn out as well as expected . . . The filling separated into a hard crunchy topping with a mushy filling underneath.

Pizza Pasta
I noticed black olives in the photo but not listed in the recipe. I added black olives, garlic powder, italian seasoning, and I added a bag of frozen cut yellow squash. I served with Texas toast and a salad. Quick, easy, yummy - Thanks!

Tiramisu Layer Cake
I tried this recipe because I couldn't find lady fingers or marcapone cheese in any stores in my area. Next time I will puchase a tiramisu cake from a local restaurant. I worked on this cake for 2 days. Very disappointing. Not alot of flavor. No one in my family had ever tried tiramisu before. I doubt any one of them will ever want to try it again.
