About this Cook
Air Force brat, moved over 40 times in my life. Married my high school sweetheart. Graduated from the University of Alabama and I'm a huge SEC football fan. I love my family and I can't wait to retire so my husband and I can build our dream home at the beach and do some traveling. I hate green peas!
My favorite things to cook
Enchildas, breakfast tacos, cream cheese mashed potatoes, sweet potato casserole, buttermilk fried chicken, southern potato salad and any kind of football tailgating food! YUMMO!!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanksgiving Dinner! And our Christmas Eve buffet! And I make the best frosted Christmas cookies ever, even one 1st place in a bake off on year in Biloxi, MS. My price for winning, I had to post the recipe in the newspaper. My mother and grandmother were furious because it was a FAMILY recipe handed down. BIG TROUBLE!!! :(
My cooking triumphs
I have a wonderful white cake recipe with a buttercream frosting. Learned to bake this cake from my mother.
My cooking tragedies
The only thing that I can remember cooking that was completely inedible was a cheesy corn and jalapeno side dish. I was disgusting! In the trash....

Chocolate Chess Pie III
I make these pies all the time. Use a REGULAR sized pie crust. There is not enough filling to cover two deep dish crusts. You must use REAL butter, not margarine. Make sure you follow the directions as printed. Once the batter is mixed, pour into the two crusts very fast. The batter separates very quickly due to the 4 eggs and large amount of butter. Cook the pies a little longer than recommended to make sure the center is cooked. When you cut into the cooled pie, you should see two layers. The chocolate layer on top and the custard layer that settles to the bottom. I had to make this recipe several times to perfect it, but I get raves everytime I make it! Be patient and measure carefully when you bake. YUMMY!!!!
