Me and my angel girl
About this Cook
I'm a wife, cheerleading coach, and soccer/baseball stay-at-home-mom. I'm a devote Christian. I LOVE to cook and love to eat even more.
My favorite things to cook
Everything. I'll try anything at least once. Favorite thing over all however is probably my 'holiday/snow day' ham. Yum-O and SO super easy!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Putting the ham in over night the night before Thanksgiving, Christmas, Easter, and if we know a rare snow storm is coming in (GA doesn't get that many). There is nothing like the smell of hot, sweet ham meeting your to wake up in the morning.
My cooking triumphs
Gravy! I can't tell you how many bad batches I made before I figured it out.
My cooking tragedies
Pie dough and biscuits. I'll get them right one day but so far not so much luck. I'm still trying though.

Pumpkin Cake III
Our family and friends loved them! We had some friends over to watch a football game and we were looking for something to fix for a quick dessert to go with dinner and stumbled across this. While it wasn't quick, it sounded so yummy we decided to go for it. We admittedly tweaked it a bit. First we decided for the sake of speeding things up, to make cupcakes. Perfect use of this recipe! It's light and delicious and moist! A little messy, we make sure the kids aren't over the carpet to enjoy them but a good change we felt. We used the entire LARGE can of pumpkin. Yes that looks like a lot and is well over the two c. the recipe calls for and no it's not going to be a problem. It made the recipe very, very moist. They were great fresh out of the oven all warm and springy, but they were so much better the next morning after all that pumpkin had truly married with the other ingredients. Go with the extra. We also felt that just cinnamon was probably like a poorly spiced pumpkin pie, a bad call. So we added an 1/8th of a teaspoon of ground ginger and nutmeg to the dry mix. And because I live in the middle of a pecan grove, we used those instead of walnuts. The recipe made 30 standard cupcakes when filling the cups 2/3rds full. They rose well and were a fantastic hit with everyone. Least to say 24 hours later they are gone. And everyone is asking when we're making more!

Creamy Lemon Pie I
I had never had this until I met my husband's grandmother 11 years ago. Ever since it's been my favorite desert. So much so that I always ask granny to make one for special occaions and it's my preferred birthday treat. It's amazing just chilled in the fridge but it's best eattin frozen straight from the freezer. Not only do they freeze well for short term, but they freeze well for a couple months as well. Best pie you'll ever eat!!!!
