About this Cook
I don't like to cook daiy dinners for just family but invite someone or 30 someones over and I can go to town. Invite me to a party and I don't care about what to wear I am engrossed in what I will bring. I love to cook for others and I think that comes from my mother, the wife of a Baptist Minister. She was in the kitchen constantly cooking for someone who was sick, had a death in the family or for one of our thousands of potlucks at the church. I learned a lot about cooking from watching her and occasionally helping out. Unfortinately she passed away when I was 13 so did not get to learn all I could from her. But what I did inherit from her was the feeling that I get when I feed a friend and see the enjoyment that they get from what I have created.
My favorite things to cook
I like to make desserts best. Not only because I love a good dessert, but because it is the most loved part of the meal by most people; and just because I like to bake!
My cooking tragedies
My greatest cooking tragedy is bread. Not just one incident but every time I make bread. It's the last thing to go into the oven and I get so busy getting everything else on the table while it cooks, I burn it every time. My kids & husband take great joy in laughing at my charcoal bread. I have tried all kinds of remedies such as turning off the oven so it will cool down before it burns, and either it burns anyway or I forget it's in there and find it while doing the dishes after dinner. I have tried setting a timer and either ignore when it rings, don't hear it or whatever - but stil the bread burns. I can make a 6 layer cake, 4 layer cookie pretty much anything I attempt, with the exception of simply browning some bread. I guess we all have our Achilles heel and that is mine.

Too Much Chocolate Cake
In the picture it has icing, but reading the recipe I did not think I would need any icing for it. I thought it was just ok, kind of similar to the taste of a brownie. If I made it again I would ice it.

Overnight Blueberry French Toast
I had been blueberry picking the weekend before a girls weekend at my sister-in-laws and decided to try this since I was in charge of breakfast. Everyone went crazy over it, it reheated well for breakfast on the 2nd day and all the girls talked about how delicious it was all day and could not wait for breakfast the next day. The homemade syrup is amazing!! Only tip I have is I did not buy my bread a day before cutting in up and it was hard to cut since it was too soft so make sure you have 1-2 day old bread or it takes a lot of time to dice it up and it smooshes instead of cuts up nice.
