About this Cook
Mother of 5 and wife to one! I have carried my family through almost 16 years of home-cooked meals. My kids usually enjoy my cooking and invite their friends over, who also enjoy it. I love baking, but don't get to do it very often because I run my own quilting business.
My favorite things to cook
Cookies, cakes, pies
My favorite family cooking traditions
Eggs and grits piled on whole wheat toast, big Thanksgiving meals, lots of desserts for the holidays, chipped beef on toast, fresh comfort food

Caramel Pecan Pie
I'm not a big fan of pecan pie, mostly because of the heavy doses of corn syrup involved. To me, they're like eating huge globs of corn syrup with nuts! However, my family loves pecan pie and I needed a compromise. This was it! Replace the corn syrup with caramel and you actually have a delicious treat - in small doses of course. We grow our own pecans, so I used them fresh from the tree. The pie was so good that my family wants another one again real soon. It was the star of the Thanksgiving dessert table. Thanks!

Ultimate Double Chocolate Cookies
excellent recipe! I was looking for something that had a mocha/hot chocolate flavor to it and this had all those elements. I bought a package of peppermint flavored bits that had the consistency and flavor of Andes. I cut the semi-sweet chocolate in half to give a more cake-like consistency, added the peppermint, and followed the rest of the recipe to the letter. These were amazing!
