About this Cook
Cookbooks and my Mother were and still are my greatest influence in the kitchen. My Mother was born in Tennesee where she still lives (Knoxville) and I have inherited her love and knack for downhome Southern dishes. I have lived all over and love to try various cuisines.
My favorite things to cook
Anything with chicken! I also enjoy making Greek and Mexican dishes. My all-time fave foods are SOUTHERN!
My favorite family cooking traditions
OMG, every year at Christmas, my Mother makes her special German Chocolate cake completely from scratch. Its to die for.
My cooking triumphs
Won several ribbons and honorable mentions at various state fairs and cooking contests.
My cooking tragedies
Wayyyyyyyyyy back when I first married, my husband threatened to use my very first homemade biscuits for personalized golf balls. He also said, I could put Elmers Glue out of business with my gravy, lol. Here I am over 20+ years later and I actually get loads of requests from family and friends to make biscuits. As a matter of fact, biscuits are now a specialty of mine along with specialty desserts.

Simple Potato Salad
Not bad for a quick fix, but it needed some onion and relish.

Christmas Creamy Egg Nog
Personally, I have never been a fan of Egg Nog, but this was really good. I actually plan to serve this at our anual Christmas Crunch this year.
