About this Cook
I was born into a Yankee traditional Irish Family from PA, (although technically born in, a southern state, NC), and currently live, and have lived in AL for 10 years. So, between those complete opposites, and traveling the world as an army bratt, I have had the oppourtunity to try tastes of many cultures. I loved them all but my favorite by far is from my final settlement, AL. You can't beat the BBQ in the summer, the rib stickin biscuits and gravy in winter, fried Thanksgiving turkey, and everything in between. With the help of my friends, I have quickly been turned into a southern girl, from my evolved southern drawl to my love for college football. But i will always remain an Irish girl at heart with my own traditions; guiness, soda bread, slow roasted corned beef and cabbage, and St. Paddy's day as one of my favorite holidays.
My favorite things to cook
EVERYTHING!.... with a healthy twist
My favorite family cooking traditions
St Paddy's Day! Corned beef and cabbage, beer, family and friends. What more could you ask for? In the fall, Thanksgiving and Christmas are wonderful but, nothing beats finger foods and football!! WAR EAGLE!
My cooking triumphs

My cooking tragedies

Bread Pudding II
This recipe is just so simple to make and my husband just loved it!! I replaced the rasins with chopped up bannanas and served it warm with vanilla ice cream; topping it off with a drizzle of chocolate syrup and powdered sugar. It was well worth the indulgence = ) !!
