About this Cook
I enjoy baking and cooking.. Baking is a passion of mine.. Sharing the yumminess of homemade baked goods is priceless. Maybe, one day I will open a homemade sweets shop or something. I love all of our pets.. We have six, 3 dogs and 3 cats! It's like a mini petting zoo!! Most of all, I love my Husband! We now have a handsome son!
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake any kind of desserts! I have a huge sweet tooth! So, I love to try new recipes and taste them, too!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I don't really think we have any... When my husband and I decide to have kids, I will make some cooking tradions of our own.. I can't wait! Our son, is usually in his highchair eating a snack when I am cooking or baking. I can't wait to have him help me cook and bake! It will be messy but fun!!
My cooking triumphs
Making a christmas dinner in 2007, for my family and friends. That was fun and scary.. It turned out to be a great dinner and everyone enjoyed it!
My cooking tragedies
When I was 13 years old, I tried to make lemon squares and messed up on one of the ingredients and they came out greenish instead of yellow... LOL! Not sure, but I think I mixed up the baking soda or baking powder. Anyway, my Aunt couldn't stop laughing at what I made.. It was a disaster.. But, a funny memory!

Janet's Rich Banana Bread
I used 1/4 cup of melted butter and 1/4 cup applesauce. Reduced sugar to 3/4 cup, used buttermilk in place of sour cream(didn't have any). Mashed the bananas and added 1 tsp of cinnamon. Came out very moist and delicious.

Eggless Eggnog
I love store bought eggnog. I tried homemade eggnog and feel it's too egg-y. Came across a similar recipe, like this on Pinterest. I used white chocolate pudding mix, with 4 cups 1/2% milk and 2 cups 2%. Didn't use rum extract. Added 1/3 cup sugar and a few sprinkles of nutmeg and cinnamon. Came out good. Will make again.

Hard to believe, but many kids will be back in school at the end of the month. Get ready.
