About this Cook
My Husband and two children love to eat! It's sometimes a challenge to come up with Healthy & creative, yet interesting meal ideas that my picky eaters will love.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake when I have the time, especially breads and desserts. I also love experimenting and trying new recipes. You'll often find me making up my own thing with what I have on hand.
My cooking tragedies
Too many to remember! We all make mistakes, it's when you can fix it and no one knows what happened that it counts in cooking!!

Fried Rice Restaurant Style
This was delicious! I didn't have sesame oil so left it out, and used chives instead of green onions. Yum!

GA Peach Pound Cake
I made this recipe exactly as written (well I did peel my peaches and they were VERY ripe) and it was absolutely delicious! I'm so glad I left it as is. The inside was moist and tender with a nice peach taste, the outside was crisp and sweet, such a nice compliment to the inside! I think it is one of the best pound cake's I've ever tired! Next time I ma or may not add a glaze, it really doesn't need it but it would pretty it up a bit.

Split Pea Soup
YUM! This will be my main split Pea Soup recipe from now on, it was delicious! I used a large meaty ham hock, boiled it in 2quarts of water with 2 bay leaves for about an hour then added 1 diced onion and boiled about 30 more minutes. I soaked the peas in water while the hock boiled and rinsed until water was very clear. Added the peas, 3 diced carrots, 2 diced potatoes and 3 diced celery stalks along with another bay leaf, some thyme, cracked black pepper, fresh rosemary, 1 crushed chicken bullion cube and some parsley. Then simmered it all for about another hour. Stirred in about 1/4 c heavy cream just before serving. Let me tell you It was so good! Made a great New Year's Day dish with hot homemade rolls and brownies for dessert :)
