About this Cook
I'm a busy mom of two active girls. I help out in my 10 yr. old Girl Scout troop & I lead my 6yr. olds troop. We are involved in sports. I enjoy my children and they are my life. I need quick & easy for dinner. Plus my 6yr. old is picky.
My favorite things to cook
My 10yr. old LOVES my baked mac & cheese. I've perfected it over the course of a year. I personally like any chicken recipes. I do enjoy a good pot of spagetti sauce(gravy) cooking on Sun. YUM! Many things can be made w/good sauce.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My grandmom has taught me alot of delicious veggie recipes. My 3 aunts have also been good in the recipe dept. too. What an honor when they ask ME for a recipe.
My cooking triumphs
Like I said mac & cheese is a recipe I worked on for a year to get the flavor and consistancy I was looking for so I'm nor comfortable sharing outside of the family. I also have created two recipes that are delicious cassoroles.
My cooking tragedies
Not great @ baking. I need a recipe! Betty Crocker, Duncan Hines, & Pillsbury help alot here. I have mastered a tender steak yet.

Good Ol' Alabama Sweet Tea
The amount of tea bags to the amount of water makes this seem like sugar water. I use 1 gallon of water bring to a boil turn off heat add 12 tea bags steep for 15 mins. add 1 1/2c-2c sugar. add iced to a tall glass and a squeeze of lemon & pour
