About this Cook
I am a Real Estate Agent. Cooking for my family is one of my rewards in life. My Grandma Lee is one of my greatest influence in cooking and how to cook.
My favorite things to cook
I like to bake! I like making desserts also. One of my favorite recipes is a lemon bundt cake made with lemon-lime soda. My husband has always liked lemon bundt cakes and I used to buy store bought ones...not any more!
My favorite family cooking traditions
One of my favorite family traditions was started by my Mom when I was a child. Along with my brothers, my Mom would cut out our name with Texas Toast and make French Toast on our birthdays every year. I have continued that tradition with my own children
My cooking triumphs
I successfully had my husband family in our home for Easter. Everything went great!

Very Easy Fruit Salad
This was very pretty, but hardly anyone touched it at my office Thanksgiving luncheon. I liked it, but it was not great. Will try another similar recipe.

Heavenly Pink Salad
Took this dish to my office Thanksgiving luncheon. It was hit!! I did not add the coconut, as others suggested. It make a huge bowl of it, so it is great for a large crowd. Will make again! Thank you for sharing!
