About this Cook
I'm a freelance writer in the Nashville area and. also, dabble in songwriting. I've been married to the love of my life for 26 years and have a son, 23, and a daughter, 20. We adopted the puppy in my profile picture on Sept 25th and named her Dixie Grace.
My favorite things to cook
I love cooking anything Italian and anything southern. I also love to bake everything from cakes to pies to cookies -- just any kind of desserts!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Milky Way cake for b'days... most often requested dishes from my family: chicken pot pie, chicken divan, broccoli pea casserole, baked spaghetti and white chicken lasagna.
My cooking triumphs
I made a red velvet cheesecake cake for my son's engagement party and it looked beautiful and tasted even better!
My cooking tragedies
I once added self-rising flour to a Milky Way cake batter instead of all-purpose and it kept rising until it ran over the edges of the pans all over the bottom of the oven. It was enough of a total mess for me to always double check ingredients before I stir 'em in!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Cookies
I've been baking 30 years and this is now the best cookie in my recipe collection. I followed the recipe exactly -- they were easy to make, baked up perfectly and tasted awesome!
