About this Cook
I love to cook and to read, that is why I collect cookbooks. I am working on writing a cookbook of my own. I will probably only share it with my family, but it is a dream I have had for a long time.
My favorite things to cook
Anything!!! My family is from the South, so I have to cook all that good stuff. Plus, I have learned a lot about authentic Mexican foods from my ex-husband's family. I also try to bake as much as possible.
My favorite family cooking traditions
All those good ol' Southern foods! In our family, making my mother's Buttermilk Pie and Prune Cake for holidays is a big tradition. I get my boys in the kitchen to help me cook the foods my mom always cooked. As my sons get older, I love to watch their cooking talents developing.
My cooking triumphs
Cooking authentic Mexican foods that fooled my ex's friends. They thought my Enchiladas and Tamales were cooked by a Mexican woman.
My cooking tragedies
Too many to mention! But that is the fun part of cooking, isn't it?

Healthier Delicious Ham and Potato Soup
Awesome recipe. I made this for my son, who is a fan of potato soup and this is now his favorite. Super easy to make and is it is done fairly quickly!

Cranberry Waldorf
I made this for my sister's Thanksgiving Dinner and it was a really refreshing alternative to basic Waldorf Salad. Everyone really enjoyed it!

Hoagie Bake
This is a hit with my 3 sons! In fact, my oldest asks for it a lot for his birthday since the tradition in my house is that they get whatever they want for dinner!
