About this Cook
I am a mother of three (two boys-1 girl), and a grandmother of 4 (two boys-two girls). After being single for 25 years I remarried two years ago (in July)to a man I went to Grammar School with, and which lived on my street. Who would have known, we still can't believe it.
My favorite things to cook
cakes, crockpot, fish, and spaghetti.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Southern food is the greatest. My mother was a simple cook, but I like to try recipes that are a challenge. Cooking is just plain fun to me, and I love to cook something and hear all the oohs and ahhhs. HA!!
My cooking triumphs
I took a cake decorating course years ago, and later on made a wedding cake and a groom's cake. They turned out beautiful as well as delicious.
My cooking tragedies
If I ever try a recipe and it is a big failure I throw the recipe away. Hate it when a cake falls although my husband loves them.

Southern Praline Pecan Cake
This is my husbands favorite cake, he calls it the crumbless cake because there is never a crumb left. I recently made it with a Duncan Hines Chocolate Butter Cake Mix instead of the Yellow Butter Mix and it was incredible. Changed to 3/4 cup water and 1/2 cup oil and it was perfect. Add a caramel glaze is you wish. YUMMMMMY!!!
