After 20 years of working in the corporate world, I am now a stay-at-home mom of three beautiful boys. Nothing makes me happier than making something new and my family really loving it!
My favorite things to cook
My absolute favorite day for cooking is Thanksgiving. I cook the entire spread for our extended family. It is a lot of work and days of preparation but it makes me so very happy and satisfied to make this meal for everyone.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom was and still is the best cook ever. True southern cooking. She had a knack for making something out of nothing.
My cooking triumphs
I don't know if these are truly "triumphs" and certainly anyone can make them, I just know these are things I do well and enjoy making:
Garlic prime rib; pumpkin/coconut/pecan cake with cream cheese icing; squash casserole; buttercream frosting; white chocolate bread pudding; fudge; sweet potato casserole.
My cooking tragedies
I'm Southern but still can't turn out the perfect biscuit. Don't get it.
