About this Cook
Southern girl and proud of it.
My favorite things to cook
Good old fashioned southern cooking, with all the butter, cream and salt one can desire. Life's too short to go without. I like cooking much better than baking. I'm not a good baker nor do I have the desire to be. I would rather throw things together and create something original than be confined to prepare perfect measurements in order to (hopefully) get the recipe right. But I do make good pies. (That's kind of a throw-things-together desert though). Maybe that's why.
My favorite family cooking traditions
The holidays and everthing that goes with it.
My cooking triumphs
Best Cornbread ever.
My cooking tragedies
Biscuits. They come out like rocks, every time. Even tried Granny's recipe (she made PERFECT buscuits). A complete and utter failure.

Toscana Soup
Since trying this recipe, we have made it dozens of times this year. Being from the South, I use chopped collard greens in place of the kale. (The frozen collards are perfect in a pinch). This is a simply terrific soup. Great for a chilly day, even better for leftovers, if you can get lucky enough to have some left over. Thanks for the recipe, it is a family favorite.

Sugar Coated Pecans
I used vanilla in place of some of the water, and added some brown sugar to the mix. Came out perfect!
