Hello AR Friends!! I think Spring may be here, at least it has been for the last couple days, beautiful sunshine and almost 70 degrees!  We worked out in the yard and it looks like humans live here again instead of piggys :)  Now, if the azaleas would just bloom I'd be in… MORE

About this Cook
I grew up in Stockton, CA and then lived most of my 1st married life in Lemoore, CA. We raised our 3 boys (twins and one more 20 months later)up together but when the youngest son graduated from high school, I realized life was too short to stay in an unhappy, dead marriage. After 23 years, a divorce and a new life. I moved to the Biloxi, MS area and met my wonderful husband now. He is all I could ask for. We have a kitty and a camper and we love them both! She camps with us all the time. I quit my job in August, '08 and my husband is retired (again) so we are enjoying our time together. ***UPDATE*** I'm working again and really liking my job. I don't have to bring it home with me and it's 32 hours per week, which works out perfect. Very happy to report that we are very happy again with a new job!!!
My favorite things to cook
My new favorite is finding low fat, healthy recipes to try. I'm really up for anything to cook.. it's truly my hobby.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Right now I would have to say that having a fish fry is the closest thing to a tradition I have. Not healthy but it sure is good! Fried fresh caught fish, hushpuppies, okra, french fries. All deep fried and all soooo good!!
My cooking triumphs
Beef Tenderloin With Roasted Shallots from this site. I served it to guests and they could not believe that this was a home made meal. For something so easy it's the best meal I've ever made. Also feel very good about my submitted recipes. I'm not one to usually make something up but I like to follow recipes and then maybe make a few tweaks to our liking and needs.
My cooking tragedies
HAHA - It still makes me laugh. My very first meal I cooked for my 1st husband was supposed to be eggs, bacon and pancakes but the skillet I tried to use was not a non-stick. Needless to say.. we had scrambled eggs, torn up bacon, and worst of all, scrambled pancakes.

Apple Crumb Pie
We loved this pie. It's very sweet but isn't that what pie is supposed to be? Anyway, I'll be making this again for sure!

Shrimp Scampi Bake
This was a great success but I didn't follow it to a T. I didn't have dijon so I used some spicy brown mustard. I, too, added about 1/4 - 1/3 cup of white wine and it made it just perfect. I think it needs some salt too, so I'd add that next time. I'll make it again with my tweaks and love it!

Banana Cake VI
Wow, dense and delicious! I cut the recipe in half and baked in a 7x11 glass dish. I did have to bake it about 10 extra minutes. Who'd of thunk about putting a hot cake in the freezer? It's a keeper.
