About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
Southern comfort foods, italian dishes, traditional American fare and desserts!!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Ever since I was little, we would cook at Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter with my grandmother. She was the best cook. Now my sister, my dad and I continue that tradition!
My cooking triumphs
My tortilla soup and chicken and dumplings are some of my best recipes that I have perfected thru trial and error! But I updated my grandmother's biscuit recipe and they are really good! I am very proud of that!
My cooking tragedies
Hmm, too many to list! Soups with too much salt, biscuits with no salt, a cake with no eggs, a dip for a party with no seasonings... I have 3 kids, so sometimes life gets in the way! :)

Lemon Cake with Lemon Filling and Lemon Butter Frosting
I used a lemon box cake (I added 1 tsp vanilla to it and substituted butter for the oil) and purchased lemon curd, but made the layers and used the frosting recipe from this. Everyone loved it. Tasted like something from a bakery.

Awesome Korean Steak
Great recipe! Yummy! Tastes like something you would eat in a restaurant!I didn't have any shallots, so I used green onions instead and it worked fine. I also cut the meat into strips before I marinated it and I only marinated it for about 3 1/2 hours and it still tasted awesome!

Baked Cheese Olives
Very good! I made 2 batches of these and the second one I added 1/4 cup more of flour to make them a little less cheesy. I also added olive juice to the mixture to make it easier to work with. That worked great!
