About this Cook
Don't depend on my review of recipes. Try them out for yourself :)
My favorite things to cook
Desserts, of course!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Mom's banana pudding (without bananas just for me).
My cooking triumphs
Finding the marshmallow fondant recipe on this site. I am truly am disgusted in the marketed fondant in stores. Now all my cookies look instantly beautiful and taste wonderful as well.
My cooking tragedies
Well, it was actually my husband's tragedy. After a long day at work, he had his mouth set on fried chicken. (I don't like to fry) So he decided to fry some chicken. Well when you're not focusing on cooking and you're talking at the same time, mishaps happen. He battered the fried chicken in POWDERED SUGAR and attempted to fry them. He still didn't quite get why he had a black and sticky mess and lots of smoke. I just don't get it. I have always been able to tell the difference, out of a container, between powdered sugar and flour. He wasn't too happy and I couldn't breathe because I was laughing so hard. Gratefully, my sister-in-law was there as my witness. Other than that, he would have denied that it ever occurred.

Mexican Corn on the Cob (Elote)
Exellent with parmesan/cayenne or queso fresca with a little mayo.

Southern Potato Salad
I did not use celery stalk and did not add garlic, it was delicious. I also mostly used egg yolk. I'm not too much of an egg white fan.
