About this Cook
I am a transplanted Kentuckian in North Carolina who is in love with Southern Cooking. I am always trying to find new ways of doing old Southern dishes. My dream is to open a small bakery offering pastries, cakes, and cookies.
My favorite things to cook
I must say that my favorite things to cook would have to be any type of cookie or candy. Sugar is an art form and it's my muse!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My entire family has the same kind of tradition. Every so often in the fall and winter we make my grandmother's dried apple stack cakes. The patience it takes to let them sit a couple of days to "ripen" is almost more than we can bear!
My cooking triumphs
I must say my greatest triumph was catering breakfast for 400. Sweet potato biscuits, country ham, peppered bacon, loaded omlettes, and an oatmeal/juice bar!
My cooking tragedies
Potato salad....any type or kind.

Honey Vanilla Ice Cream
I MADE THIS WITH LAVENDER HONEY AND I MUST SAY....ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS! MY IN LAWS WENT NUTS OVER THIS! THE CRUNCHY PECAN COCONUT GRANOLA I USED WAS A CRUNCH THAT OFFSET IT PERFECTLY.

Pumpkin Cake III
EXCELLENT! THE ONLY THING I CHANGED WAS THAT MY HUSBAND LOVES A LOT OF SPICE IN HIS CAKE SO I INCREASED THE SPICES TO 3 tsp. CINNAMON 3 tsp. GINGER and 3 tsp. CLOVES. BE WARNED THIS MAKES A LOT OF CAKE...AND ITS A GOOD THING CAUSE AFTER TOPPING WITH CREAM CHEESE ICING AND CHOPPED WALNUTS IT WENT IN NO TIME FLAT!

Honey Bun Cake I
WONDERFUL! I WILL ADMIT TO ADDING PECANS TO THE CINNAMON MIXTURE..BUT WHEN I READ ABOUT ALL THE SUGAR GLAZE I HIT ON SOMETHING ...HOT VANILLA SAUCE! I COOKED A BOX OF SUGAR FREE VANILLA PUDDING MIX ON THE STOVE BUT ADDED A THIRD OF A CUP TOO MUCH MILK TO MAKE IT THINNER...SERVED WARM MY WHOLE FAMILY ATE THIS UP LIKE THERE WAS NO TOMORROW!
