About this Cook
I am a single parent and love to cook for people. To see people's faces light up when they taste my food gives me a wonderful satisfaction.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook just about anything and everything.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Well, my grandmother was a great cook but she passed away when I was 12 and I did not learn a whole lot from her. My mother never really cooked so everything I have learned was from trial and error. Basically the main ingredient is LOVE and nothing else!
My cooking triumphs
Cooking a home made alfredo sauce. It was wonderful after many failed attempts
My cooking tragedies
I was making an alfredo sauce and put in heavy cream as the recipe called for and it was horribly sweet. I learned later that I used the sweet heavy cream for baking/whipping cream instead of the non sweetened. Makes a big difference!

Alyson's Broccoli Salad
I love this salad. I bought a broccoli salad at wal-mart's deli one day and fell in love with it and decided that I could make it so I looked it up here to kind of copy cat it. This one tastes an lot like it but people (including myself) say that it is better than wal-mart's. The only thing different that I did was added a bunch of green onions along with the red onion and I added golden (or blonde) raisens instead of the black ones, shredded carrots, and finely diced celery. This is soooo good and tastes better the next day too!

Red Velvet Cake IV
I fixed this today for a birthday celebration. I have never made a homemade cake before and never even tasted red velvet cake. Let me tell you this is wonderful!!!! I took other's advice with the coco by putting 4 1/2 Tablespoons with the flour and sifting it together, also used 2 1/2 bottles (2 1/2 ounces) of red food coloring, used 3 9" cake pans, and baking it at 340 degrees for 35 - 40 minutes. It came out perfectly. I think the recipe would be right if the person who posted it had told us to put 1 pan in at a time on 325 for 25 minutes. I bet that is what the recipe should be!!!! We had 6 or 7 Foreign Exchange students from New Zealand, Germany, Columbia, Austria, Switzerland, Australia, and Italy and most laughed and said they all made the comment that they had never seen a red cake and one of them thought the cake was bleeding. It was funny! Everyone raved over the cake. I thought it was wonderful!!!! I made the icing the night before and made sure it was cold...it made it thicker so it wasn't runny! Then after spreading the icing I refrigerated the cake so it the icing wouldn't be too runny! It had a GREAT flavor! It is an EASY cake to make!!! Thank you!

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup
I made this for a Christmas luncheon for the staff at my school that I work at. I am not sure how much soup I made but it was A LOT!!! I know I used fifteen pounds of potatoes. Ok, I made some changes to this recipe...basically I put two recipes together. I sauteed 2 bunches of green onions, 2 onions, 1 whole stalk of celery, 4 shredded carrots, 4 jalepenos, ham, and lots of garlic(probably 10 cloves) before hand. I used chicken broth as the base to boil my potatoes in, I then added all of my sauteed veggies, I put half and half in it instead of the milk, and a lot of shredded cheddar cheese. It was WONDERFUL. It made a TON and it was all gone by 11:45 AM and we only have 95 employees at this school. Everyone loved it. Thanks!!!!!!
