About this Cook
my husband and I have 3 children. We love to eat! Especially rich African American dishes.
My favorite things to cook
I'm a baker I like buttery cookies and cakes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Our family tradition is "hey Juanta what ya cooking?" I always do the work I'm trying to get these new sister in-laws in on the action.
My cooking triumphs
I mastered the traditional Lemon pound cake.
My cooking tragedies
My butter just dont turn out any more. In the Chicago public schools they used to serve "lunch room butter cookies" My mother taught me how to make this awesome cookie, and I just forgot. In my family we never write any thing down we just pass the recipies on. That one is now gone because my mother forgot also.

Easy Grape Salad
I made this for a 4th of July picnic and the family loved it! The topping really clings to the grapes so you don't have to scrape around for the sweet filling. I used walnuts instead of almonds.
