About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook old fashioned southern food. My favorite things to eat are Mexican and Italian dishes so I love to experiment with those as well.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every holiday season we break out our old family recipes that are tattered, stained, and worn. It is fun getting together and eating our old favorites and adding new ones every year. Our family motto is if you bring a dish have the recipe memorized because you will be asked to share it!

Restaurant-Style House Salad
This salad is just like the one served at a well known Italian restaurant in Missouri. We used to love to go there just to eat this salad before our meal. Thanks for the great recipe! ;-)~Amy

Easy Spinach Casserole
I think this is a great recipe. We have it every holiday season but with a few changes. We omit the bread crumbs and add a small can of chopped black olives and 1/2 a jar of real bacon pieces. Thanks for the recipe Barbara!

Mexican Cream Cheese Rollups
I have been making this recipe for years & everyone loves them! You can omit the mayo & just use cream cheese. Sometimes I kick it up with garden vegetable flavored cream cheese and a pinch of garlic powder. We also add a small can of chopped mushrooms. Yummy!!! This mixture is also good for stuffing pickled jalapenos too!
