About this Cook
I've been cooking for all my life it seems. I started experimenting in the kitchen when I was 5 or 6. I grew up in a family of good southern cooks. I hope to be able to pass this on to my daughter one day. She is 2 years old now and already like to help in the kitchen.
My favorite things to cook
Probably dinner for my family. I love to experiment with new things and try to put a good meal on the table every night. I think it is very important to sit down to dinner as often as possible.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Making my great grandma's coconut pies for Thanksgiving and Christmas. And my "famous" cheese ball for all family functions.
My cooking triumphs
Being able to make Granny's pies as good as she did.
My cooking tragedies
There are many, but what do they say, you don't learn unless you try and make mistakes.

Juicy Fruit Salad
Excellent, just what I was looking for. I omited the banana, subbed a can of mandarine oranges, added a can of grapefruit slices, pint of blueberries, and pint of raspberries. YUMMM!

Cheese Ball
This is very similar to my granny's recipe for cheese ball, except we add 1 cup grated sharp cheddar. The key is to drain the pineapple in a seive and then mix the ingredients and put in bowls lined with wax paper in fridge for about an hour, then use the wax paper to help form the balls and roll in nuts. Also it works better if you make two balls instead of one.

Slow Cooker Pineapple Pork Roast
I did this a little differently. I pierced the meat and sprinkled it with season salt, garlic powder, black pepper and onion powder. I then put meat on top of sliced onions in a roaster and poured the cranberry/pineapple mixture over it. I used whole cranberry sauce. I baked covered at 350 for 1 1/2 hours or till the temp was 155 then let sit for 15 mins before slicing. Delish! Tender and great with mashed potatoes and seasoned green beans.
