About this Cook
I'm not an expert,I just love to cook. I have a collection of cookbooks and try new recipes whenever I can.
My favorite things to cook
I love desserts and I have the waistline to prove it! My co-workers are constantly asking me to bake a batch of cookies. During the holidays,I bake about a dozen loaves of sweet potato bread to give as gifts and I always get requests for more.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mother taught me to cook. She thought biscuit making was something every southern woman should know so that was my first cooking lession.
My cooking triumphs
My stepmother is extremely hard to impress. One night I invited her and my father to dinner and served a spicy shrimp/pasta casserole,crab cakes,and cheddar garlic biscuits. She still raves about it to this day.
My cooking tragedies
My first Christmas dinner was a complete fiasco. The turkey was so dry it crunched and the stuffing had more salt in it than the Dead Sea. After dinner,Pepto Bismol was had by all.

Spicy Refrigerator Dill Pickles
I couldn't even wait a day to try these pickles. For my taste, dill pickles are too sour and bread and butter pickles are too sweet. These pickles are the perfect combination of both. I used the full amount of sugar called for and as much dill as I had which was about two tablespoons fresh chopped and two tablespoons dried. I also added about a tablespoon of dried habanero and cayenne flakes for a little kick. I had small pickling cucumbers so I cut them in half and divided them among two quart size jars and put four crushed garlic cloves in each. I then filled both jars with the pickling brine. Even after one day in the fridge they were outstanding! I'm through with store bought pickles. These pickles are easy to make and easy to adjust to your own taste.

Sugar Coated Pecans
I've never been a big fan of pecans until I found this recipe. These pecan are absolutely wonderful and so easy to make! I used vanilla instead of water along with one egg white,4 cups pecan halves, 1 teaspoon salt, 1 cup sugar, and 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon. Other members may have complained about the salt content but one teaspoon was perfect for me. It gave the pecans a buttery flavor and I love sweet and salty together. I will be making these often.

Coco-Cola Cake II
Delicious!! I used 1/2 cup butter and 1/2 cup vegetable oil and left out the marshmallow(didn't have any). It made a beautifully moist chocolate cake with a hint of caramel. Will definitely make this again.
