About this Cook
I'm married with 4 sons. I love to try new recipes and to cook for other people. Because I like cooking and eating, we try to stay active. We like hiking, backpacking, climbling and canyoneering. We live in a great area where all these activities are just minutes away.
My favorite things to cook
It depends on the day. Sometimes I'm in the mood (or maybe it's guilt) to make healthy food. Other days, I have no problem making and eating a whole dessert myself.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love to make fun birthday cakes. My mom always did the same for us when we were growing up. My kids tell me what they want, and then I try to make it look somewhat recognizable.
My cooking triumphs
My husband built a pizza oven this summer, so we've made tons of pizzas, and I think we may have finally mastered perfect pizza.
My cooking tragedies
I like to can the things we grow in our garden. Last summer I was canning salsa and forgot that it was only half a batch; I added enough salt for a full batch, which is like a cup too much. I didn't have enough produce left in my garden to make it a full batch, and I tried everything to make it edible, but ended up having to throw it out.

Whole Grain Waffles
Wow! I was completely surprised at how light and crisp these turned out. I never would have guessed that they are whole grain. My whole family loved them. Before finding this recipe, the only whole grain waffles my husband would eat was an expensive store bought brand. This is the new favorite.

Chunky Cheesecake Brownies
Wow. Very, very good. My husband told me he would order these in a restaurant. I always double the recipe and use a 9x13. It takes about 40 min to bake when doubled. The first time, I made as is. Now when I make it I put about half the amount of choc chips into the cream cheese mix and usually use a little extra cream cheese. Delicious.

Friendship Soup Mix in a Jar
I gave this 4 stars because I think it's too salty. I think 1/4 of bouillon is perfect. I used clear treat bags instead of jars to save money. This makes a great christmas gift if you're trying to avoid all the sweets.
