About this Cook
I loved to cook. I started cooking on my own at the age of ten. I've learned from godmothers, aunts,uncles, grandmothers and my first teacher(MOM). I can make eloquent meals as well as 1,2,3 in a hurry meals. I love to bake. Cakes and pie are my speciality. Everyone always tells me I should open a restaurant. I love my first profession too much to do so. I am a wife,mom,nanna,godmommy and teacher first.
My favorite things to cook
Seafood of all types.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Italian and Southern Cooking.
My cooking triumphs
Making a full Thanksgiving dinner by myself. Every year for as long as I can remember we cooked as a family. 2004 was the first year we cooked without our mom whom passed in the beginning of the year. It was sad but I did it.
My cooking tragedies
biscuits..I wish I had learned to make them the way my mom did.

Smothered Beef Short Ribs
I made this for my Sunday Dinner rather than grilling short ribs like I usually do. I must say I will definitely make this again! I follow the recipe to the teeth except I thicken my gravy with a little flour and water mix. I served them with black eye peas and yellow rice.My huband loved it. Will have the leftovers with mashed potatoes like the other reviewers. Try it I know you will love it too!

Pumpkin Muffins with Streusel Topping
Anyone who knows me knows I love to cook. My husband has been looking for a good pumpkin muffin. He was disappointed in Dunkin Doughnuts when he tried their pumpkin muffin. So I decided to give this one a try for him. This recipe was easy and taste awesome! He loved them as well as my daughter! You can't go wrong making theses muffins. Only thing different I did was to add a little more pumpkin spice, oatmeal and double the streusel topping( a must have). I am definitely pinning this one on!
