About this Cook
Just think of me as a punk rock Southern belle. My two favorite things to rock are my tattoos and pretty sundresses. I love retro living, zombies, volunteering, and cooking for family and friends.
My favorite things to cook
I love Southern cuisine. I'm obsessed with it actually. Anything rustic and maybe considered "poor man's food" always has my attention, no matter what country it is from.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We are very proud Southern cooks that believe in knowing where your food comes from. We have access to freshly grown foods, know the farmers, and hopefully I will be able to say the same about all of my meats soon. I may be a city girl, but I have a country heart.
My cooking triumphs
The perfect pie crust!
My cooking tragedies
I am at making homemade gravy. I am trying to rectify this problem before Thanksgiving.

Butter Flaky Pie Crust
Thank you, thank you, thank you! This recipe was amazing. I was super nervous about making a scratch pie crust for the first time since failing miserably many moons ago in my teens, but this recipe came out more amazing than I could have ever imagined. Buttery, flaky, very delicious, airy crust. I don't think I will ever bother to buy a crust again. PS, I put the crust in the freezer wrapped in wax paper for an hour to chill the dough so I did not have to wait the 4 hours. It worked perfectly.
