About this Cook
I've been baking since childhood, but started getting serious about baking and cooking within the last five years. So far, I've earned a reputation for being good, so here's hoping I can make it a reputation for being GREAT.
My favorite things to cook
First love is always baking -- cakes, pies, cookies are all favorites. Love cooking Italian food, love anything cheesy. My favorite things to cook are usually the things that make people drool the minute they walk through my door.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My Mamaw used to make Chex Mix and Rice Krispie Treats every Christmas, so now I do that in her honor. It makes the holidays complete and brings a hint of nostalgia to the table every year. Love my Mamaw and think she'd be proud of the cook I've become.
My cooking triumphs
Pies! They always seemed impossible, but now I bake them with *some* confidence. Also, a pasta bake that is remarkably similar to my Mamaw's (made my mother compliment my cooking -- biggest success possible).
My cooking tragedies
The very first pie I attempted before doing ANY research. Normally I research everything, but this time I didn't. Lesson learned.

Apple Crumble Pie
This is the first apple pie I've attempted, and I am entirely happy with the results. I took the advice of some of the other reviewers and switched up the filling/crumb topping a bit (white sugar AND brown sugar, YUM!) and I love it.

Basic Flaky Pie Crust
I'm new to baking pies, and this was super easy. Took the advice of other reviewers and used butter instead of shortening -- no regrets.
