About this Cook
I love to try new recipes and can't think of many things I wouldn't try at least once. I have a son (23), a step-son (23, a daughter (13) and a wonderful husband, Darrel. They let me know right away if a new recipe is a "KEEPER".
My favorite things to cook
I like to try just about anything! I love seafood dishes. My husband shrimps so I always have an abundance of delicious wild caught SC shrimp! I like to bake, cakes, pies, sweets in general. I love to find new creative soups and pasta dishes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
The first thing that comes to mind is our families oyster dressing, it wouldn't be Thanksgiving without it!! My son and daughter like making my Macho Nachos. My sister in law is the pastry queen and makes the most awesome deep dish apple pie that the entire family looks forward to.
My cooking triumphs
My sinful Shrimp Mornay!!!MMMM!!! My Lemon Sunshine Cheesecake!! My Steak Au Poivre (My family insist I make it on vacations for 14 PEOPLE!!!)
My cooking tragedies
Creme brulee I used a metal pan for my water bath, OOPS it never set up!!Live and learn!! Helping a friend make pineapple cookies! She was reading off the ingredients as I was mixing them. What she said was a can of pineapple I later found out was a CUP!! She thought C stood for can! lol

Best Brownies
My 12 year old daughter and her friend baked these on a rainy day. They turned out great. The glaze was a little strange, it was easily spread on warm brownies with the back of a metal serving spoon. The glaze complimented the brownies nicely! We'll make these again!

Favorite Peanut Butter Cookies
I made these for Christmas and my husband and daughter loved them! I added mini chocolate chips to have of the batch (yum) and I also used reduced fat peanut butter, since it is all that I keep on hand. I am baking another batch as I type this and they smell soooo good!!! Thanks for the great recipe!

Shrimp Scampi Bake
I've made this twice and we love it! The only change I made was to use about 1/2 teaspoon of Old Bay seasoning. Very good served over linguine.
