About this Cook
Wife and Mama
My favorite things to cook
I'm a sugar freak so I absolutely love baking and creating desserts. As far as everything else goes, I'll try just about anything as long as it doesn't have mushrooms in it. I love all diffrent kinds of foods from sushi to fried chicken and would love to add more exotic, international dishes to my repertoire.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mother and grandmother are Southern cooking experts. I can only dream of being as good as they are.
My cooking triumphs
I've gotten rave reviews for my meatloaf, chili and cheesecake. Not together, of course.
My cooking tragedies
Ugh - gravy. Can't seem to master it.

Smoky Potato Cheese Soup
I'm going to rename this "Naughty Potato Soup" because it is SO not for the health conscious but so addictively yummy! I tweaked the original recipe a bit to fit what I had on hand by substituting ham for the smoked sausage, red potatoes, and half and half for the evaporated milk. I also didn't realize I had bought 2% Velveeta so that may have changed the consistency and flavor a bit. I still thought it was pretty tasty and served it with steamed broccoli to ease my conscience about the gobs of fat in the soup. If my family approves (they haven't tried it yet!) this will definitely make the list for easy weeknight recipes. NOTE: Be very careful after the cheese and milk is added. It will scorch to the bottom of the pot if the heat is too high.

Wedding Cake
I'm giving this 3 stars because, I had to modify the recipe (according to other user comments it needed extra flavoring) and I thought the cake was very similar to another pound cake recipe I use. Overall, it was good, but it was a very heavy cake and I had trouble baking it in 9" pans. I had to rotate it a few times and it still wasn't quite done in the middle after baking it for almost 40 minutes. I can't imagine trying to make a layered wedding cake with this recipe. It would weigh a ton!
