About this Cook
I love old fashioned, authentic cooking and baking. I am a traditionalist, and I don't use box mixes.

Sweet Potato Pie VII
I grew my own sweet potatoes for this. This recipe was so good, even though I accidentally under-cooked the sweet potatoes before mashing. Everyone loved it!

Coconut Poke Cake
I have been craving coconut everything lately. This cake does not disappoint. I made the cake from scratch using the Heavenly White Cake recipe from this site, and used coconut milk instead of coconut cream because that was all I had on hand. Anyway, the cake came out fantastic. I will definitely be making this again.

Heavenly White Cake
Loved this cake. I despise the chemical taste of boxed mixes and really prefer to make things from scratch. I used this cake for the base of the Coconut Poke Cake on this site. I added the extra 1/2 cup of milk other reviewers suggested as swapped the almond extract for coconut extract. The cake came out wonderful! So light and moist!
