About me: I collect cookbooks and love to cook and try new recipes. I tested recipes for Leite's Culinaria for almost eight years. I learned to cook from many good southern cooks including my Mom, Dad, several Aunts and my Grandmothers. My children and husband also like to cook and try new foods and recipes. My son still lives with us but our daughter is married. She often visits to cook with me. We are adventuresome eaters willing to try new things.

Beatty's Chocolate Cake : page 165

Mustard-Roasted Potatoes : page 153

Son, hubby and I loved this simple but delicious side dish. Great way to spice up potatoes. Daughter thought they were a bit sweet tasting to her.

Summer Garden Pasta : page 121

We made this with some homegrown tomatoes and the flavor was out of this world. I will make again.

Tomato, Mozzarella, and Pesto Panini : page 51

Loved the flavors here. Tomato, basil and mozzarella.... how can you go wrong? We don't have a panini press but it worked great in our grill machine.
