About this Cook
I have lived all over the South, from Tennessee, Florida, Virginia, and Texas. I went to college in Villanova, PA and I met my military hubby while playing volleyball in DC! I had never really cooked before we got married so thanks to Betty Crocker and Southern Living, we are both still alive! We have lived in Hawaii and Japan. I love to read, scrapbook, play volleyball, play with my Shar-Pei, and cook for my three kids!
My favorite things to cook
I love to do a fish fry when I have a gathering. I will fry catfish, shrimp, with all the sides. Because my family is polynesian, we cook with seafood several times a week. Now that I am living on the border of Mexico, I am trying lots of traditional Mexican dishes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
The kids and I bake cookies for Santa every Christmas Eve. I let the kids pick out any cake recipe they want from the cookbooks for their birthday and we make it together! I host a cookie exchange and a progressive dinner every year.
My cooking triumphs
My first triumph was making the most delicious lemon rasberry cake for my daughter's first birthday. It had seven layers and looked as pretty as a picture!
My cooking tragedies
The classic turkey disaster! The first Thanksgiving I was married, I threw out the thermometer, left the giblets in, and hadn't properly thawed the turkey prior to cooking. Gross! It is a good thing I baked a good pie because that is what we ate!

Roast Pork with Maple and Mustard Glaze
We made this exactly as the recipe stated, with the exception of reducing the sauce on te stovetop first. My entire family raved over it! Easy and delicious!

Sausage, Peppers, Onions, and Potato Bake
I prepared as written with the exception of throwing some fresh garlic in with the potatoes. Rustic, easy, and delicious! We served this with some fried cabbage and it was a wonderful on a cold November night.

Super-Delicious Zuppa Toscana
Yum. This is a great soup that is easy to make. I served it with a salad and warm garlic bread sticks as an accompaniment.
