I must say I love this site! I'm here EVERY day. I come here to find a better way to cook dinner, or fix something for a party, or just to see what's going on. There are so many recipes and so many people participating it boggles my mind. I have been to other recipe web sites and there is none… MORE

About Me
I have been using Allrecipes since 2005. It is my favorite site, bar none. I'm here almost every day. I have tried many recipes and most of them have been successful. At this time, I babysit two of my grandchildren every day. However, I still find time to to bake my pies that I sell.
My favorite things to cook
I like to cook almost anything. I like to slowcook, bake different breads, casseroles, chili, soups, and desserts. I love when people like my food. Out of all these, I think my favorite is the bread. I look 50 times to make sure it's rising; and when it does, my heart sores. Then, after it rises for the last time, and I put it in the oven, the aroma matches nothing else. There's nothing much better than freshly baked bread right out of the oven.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We used to have Thanksgiving dinner at my grandmother's house. The night before I was always there to help. Among other things, she made bread and let it rise overnight. She also made soft cookies and sweet potato pies. Of course we had the traditional turkey with all the trimmings, but this is what I remember most. At Christmas my mom had ham, potato salad, and baked beans. I have the same thing with a few additions so as not to get bored.
My cooking triumphs
My cooking triumphs are my macaroni and cheese (which I will publish here soon), Chili, fried chicken, potato salad, chicken Alfredo (using a combination of recipes from Allrecipes), fruit pies, and soups.
My cooking tragedies
I could not make gravy. It was lumpy and tastless. Also, few times my fudge came out like caramel. I have been afraid to try to make fudge. I haven't attempted it in years.
