Hey there, and welcome to TARACOOKS.COM.  This web-site evolved from my love of cooking, and my family’s love of eating.  My family has urged me for quite a while to write a cookbook, or do something special with my recipes.  So I have heeded their request and with my hubby’s help (THANKS HONEY!) have launched TARACOOKS.COM.


I hope these recipes will call to your heart (or better yet, your tummy) and inspire you to slow down and renew your love of real food. Most recipes here at TARACOOKS.COM are prepared “from scratch.”  I try to minimize the amount of hydrogenated fats and preservatives my family eats and eliminate those bad guys from my cooking.  Remember a home baked dessert is a better choice health wise, than one purchased from the frozen food section containing hydrogenated oil, and a long list of additives we cannot spell or pronounce.


It is my heart’s desire that many of my recipes will be simple enough for everyday living.  May serving real, home cooked food be the norm, not the exception at your dinner table. Drop in anytime and see what’s for dinner.


See ya in the kitchen!

    Hey Tara-

    I linked in off Jason’s blog. We go to church with Jason and Sunny here in Huntsville. Your blog title peaked my interest so I checked it out. Everything looked absolutely wonderful that you have listed on this new site of yours!!! I am going to add you to my blog list if that is ok so I can check this site often. I ALWAYS love getting new recipes!!!

    Thank you!

    Thanks Bri

    My husband and I often link to your blog through Jason because we enjoy listening to all the wonderful music on yours. Please visit often. Hopefully there will be somethings here worthy of cooking.

    Hi Tara,

    What a great idea for a blogsite! I love to cook as well and am constantly trying to educate the Northwest to the South as far as their palates are concerned. To be sure, I will be trying some of these. They look great. Love the pictures!

    your cuz-in-law,

    Hi Pat

    Thanks for stopping by. The guys all went to Honduras this summer and haven’t quit talking about it all year. They want to go back next summer. Hope all is well with you and yours! Come back and visit often!
