About this Cook
Started learning to cook when I was only 10 years old, my step-mom was a old fashioned southern lady who said "A woman needs to know how to cook" but I was already interested, so I would be right there in the kitchen helping fix supper for our family of eight. I love to cook, and I love to create my own new recipes and try new things. Everyone tells me I should have been a chef, but I think that if I cooked all day long I wouldn't enjoy doing it at home as much or as often.
My favorite things to cook
I can make a cheesecake that will blow your tastebuds away and my pumpkin roll cannot be beat. I can also kick out anything Italian in a fierce way.

Pumpkin Roll III
I have been making these rolls for years, this recipe is almost identical to the one I use except instead of ginger I use pumpkin pie spice. For the filling I only use 2 tablespoons of butter instead of 4. I end up making almost 10 rolls a year and this year was the easiest because I just started using Parchment Paper. I bake it on the parchment then take it out of the oven and roll it up warm right in the parchment paper. Another thing I found to make the cake spongy and easier to roll is to beat the eggs until they form peaks, then add the sugar gradually and beat the sugar and eggs for about 5 minutes before folding in the pumpkin (Libby's 100% Pure pumpkin in a can).
