About this Cook
Married forty one yrs June 29 (Good Lord willing). Have two wonderful sons and daughter in law. One and only Grandson, who is the love of our lives, Bryson.
My favorite things to cook
Casseroles, grilling, desserts.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Helping my mom prepare dishes for special occassions and wondering why mine never taste as good as hers even though I used exact same ingredients as she did
My cooking triumphs
When I made a five layer Italian Cream Cake to take to my moms for Christmas 8 years ago and now even though my mom has since passed away I get alls starting in October for the cake at our family Christmas dinner. (My crazy brother even accused me of buying it at the Sweetery (great dessert store) and putting it on my plate)
My cooking tragedies
When I first married I tried to make homemade biscuits (like my moms) and my husband made so much fun of them, he made a frisbee with it. I have not made them till I ask for recipes from some of you yesterday.

'So This Is What Heaven Tastes Like!' Cream Cheese Bars
I made these for my son and his wife to take to the coast as they were going to meet her family for a vacation. She called back this am and said everyone wanted the recipe so they could make more today, so I would say they are a hit. Now I am going to make some for us. Thank you CookinBug for making me look like a "good cook" to my daugher in laws family.

Zippy Cucumber Salad
Made this yesterday for a jewelry party my daughter in law was having. I was not there but she said not one piece of anything was left in the bowl, and I had to send her the recipe this am for 5 people who ask her for it. Thanks for sharing it.
