About Big Coffee Cup
I was 32 when I started cooking; up until then, I just ate. - Julia Child
I adore food, cooking, and coffee - served in very big cups. Growing up in the Deep South as a spoiled brat, I only learned to cook the "fun stuff." Of course, that meant desserts!
I wrote a family cookbook when I was in my 30's, but really didn't know how to cook. The family joke back then was, "Aunt Pam cooks a great salad!" The review came from my adorable 10 year old nephew and his experience with my culinary skills.
When I hit the big 4-0, I realized that maybe it was time to learn to cook. Two good friends and lots of family were the lab rats to my trial runs of recipes. As long as I kept the wine coming, there were few complaints about the food. Since then, I've written another cookbook; this one titled, "Pam Actually Cooks." Emphasis on ACTUALLY. Now I'm retired; I cook 2 meals a day, experiment with recipes, and play with food!
Enjoy the site, enjoy the recipes, and put some love in that spoon! I can't guarantee that every recipe will be perfect. Quite a bit of cooking success comes with the source and freshness of the ingredients, plus trial and error. - Pam
