About this Cook
I've started out by helping my mom in the kitchen when I was small. Baking has always been my favorite thing to do. I turn to Allrecipes to help me with my cooking and we like most of the recipes we've tried so far!
My favorite things to cook
Desserts!!!! Brownies, cookies, cakes, and especially breads. Homemade pizza at least once a week!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Most of my traditions come from when I was a little girl. My mom would let me help roll out dough for cookies, bread, and biscuits. Making Chocolate Pixies was a tradition at Christmas; as well as other holiday cookies. I am still trying to establish baking traditions with my children, but it's difficult for me to share because I love doing it so much! Plus, my three oldest children are boys and not very interested to help.
My cooking triumphs
Learning to make potato salad and getting rave reviews from my husband and friends, trying new recipes that come out tasting yummy, teaching my children to use the kitchen safely and successfully having them prepare a beef stew, perfecting my pizza dough recipe.
My cooking tragedies
An eggshell in my deviled eggs once, biscuits that were too dry, wanting to create my own recipes and not knowing where to begin.

Caramel Popcorn
I love this recipe! I followed the recipe exactly and it tastes fabulous! To help with clean-up I cooled the popcorn on waxed paper and cleaned the hot cookie sheet while the caramel was still gooey! Wonderful!!

Garden Stuffed Baked Potatoes
I loved these! My husband asked me if I bought them aready prepared at the store, which is a big compliment. I think next time I'll add some shredded cheddar cheese to the potato mixture before baking them the 2nd time. Very awesome!

Catfish Saint James
This recipe was great! I added a few dashes of Essence of Emeril to the breading after reading it could be bland. The flavor was awesome and my kids loved it! I even forgot to add the butter after breading the fish and it still tasted good! Can't wait to try it again...
