About this Cook
I met my husband/best friend only 3 days before he left the country to teach abroad. He came back a year later, and we are now happily married. He's reluctant about healthy eating, but I am slowly changing his views on it! :) I am the proud "parent" of two beautiful puppies, Bella & Maddie. I love cooking. I have been cooking since I was a kid (both of my parents are good cooks). I have been using this website for years, and finally decided to become a member. I absolutely love to cook for my friends and family! It's so fun to make something homemade for the people you care about! I also love crafting, and I have my own crafting blog: redheadedcrafter.blogspot.com
My favorite things to cook
I love desserts (cookies, cakes, ice cream, chocolate, etc). I'm a teacher so I like making treats for my students on special occasions. (and they like it too...) I like trying new recipes, and I discover A LOT of good recipes by using this website. I also enjoy cooking mostly in the winter, since our summer days reach over 100 degrees for weeks at a time. We like to grill a lot in the summer.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My sister and I cooked Thanksgiving dinner a few years back, and everyone loved the food. We also make cookies every year at Christmas. I just like spending time with my family in the kitchen.
My cooking triumphs
The Thanksgiving dinner was definitely a triumph. I also feel great whenever a recipe turns out the way it is supposed to, and everybody enjoys it.
My cooking tragedies
I tried to make a chicken pot pie, and it turned out horrible. When I dumped it in the trash, it came out in one huge clump. I still have no idea what went wrong. YIKES!

Chewy Caramel
I make this recipe every single year!!!!! I don't even like store bought caramels, and I can't get enough of these! This year, I decided to try sprinkling some sea salt on top of the mixture as soon as it was in the pan.... It made them even better! Next I'm going to try dipping them in milk chocolate, and then sprinkling them with sea salt... YUMMO!!!!!!!!

Buttermilk Syrup
This recipe was super easy and delicious! I was wondering if homemade syrup would make a difference on my pancakes, and it definitely did. I didn't use any baking soda (as another reviewer had suggested). I served this with chocolate chip pancakes. Yummy!!!

Cream Cheese Pound Cake III
When I was in Jr. High I made a pound cake, and I lost the recipe. I was searching high and low for a recipe that tasted as good, and this one hits the spot!!! I serve this with the Buttercream Icing recipe from this site.
