About this Cook
Growing up the Deep South (Mississippi), cooking was an expected way of life. In addition, my mother was a caterer. You could not walk into our house without smelling buttercream frosting.
My favorite things to cook
My favorite non-event foods are anything that I can cook in the crockpot or bake. I always say that anything cooked in the oven is my responsibility, but anything cooked on top of the stove is my husband's. My favorite all-time recipe is Snow on the Mountain, the chicken buffet meal thing, because it is unique.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Our favorite cake right now is Red Velvet. My kids' favorite meal is Beef Stroganoff. Our biggest holiday food tradition is mice from maraschino cherries and Hershey's kisses.
My cooking triumphs
My greatest cooking triumph has been mastering the art of making cheesecakes that do not crack. Around town I am known for two things (other than being a wife and mother) --- playing the piano and making cheesecakes.
My cooking tragedies
When we first got married, I decided to make lasagna for my husband. I was so proud of myself. My husband took one bite and spit it out. I had substituted tomato soup for tomato sauce. It was hideous. We ended up eating MRE's that night for dinner. I have never cooked with tomato soup since that night. Have you ever noticed that when most people get married all they know how to cook are those dishes with ground beef, tomato products, and past?! Three or four newlywed years of this is enough to make anybody gag when dragging out the can opener.

Cornbread Stuffed Chicken
Definitely not worth the effort. Would have been better off simply roasting a chicken and cooking potatoes/stuffing separately. Really looked forward to having this for dinner, but my whole family was disappointed...let's go to Cici's...

Slow Cooker Barbeque
Being from deep in the Deep South, I like my barbecue to be running down my hands when I'm eating it and making a big ole mess. This was definitely not a "Red, Hot, and Blue" copycat recipe. Too dry. There are better recipes out there.

Over the Top Nachos
Definitely make again. Good "the rest of the family can't get away from the TV" dinner.
