I know there have been a few readers who, from time to time, would question when the next Formerly Faceless Recipes blog would show up. I have decided to stop writing the blog.¬†The Allrecipes Ambassadors are in charge of giving faces to faceless recipes at this point.¬†Thanks to those who… MORE

About this Cook
I have three teenage sons who are picky eaters (especially the middle one). I try to cook things that they might enjoy trying, but they're not always willing to try new things. My husband started out a picky eater when we met back in 1986, but he's gotten much better and is willing to try ALMOST anything I make. In my spare time I teach second grade. I have introduced my students to cooking and/or new foods over the years.
My favorite things to cook
I love to try all sorts of new recipes, so I don't really have a favorite thing to cook. I enjoy using fresh ingredients from the garden and canning those ingredients to use year-round. I also enjoy baking treats for my second grade class. I'll try almost anything if I think my family will eat it. Of course, I've been known to try a recipe because I want to, whether they'll eat it or not.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love making the pumpkin pies and other desserts for Thanksgiving. I always like to try one new dessert for each holiday. Baking Christmas cookies is a tradition that goes back as long as I can remember.
My cooking triumphs
I've made some pretty cool cakes for my boys' birthdays. They include a firetruck, baseball, football, and Pokeball. I've also used shaped pans to decorate everything from Barney and Elmo, Power Ranger, Jeff Gordon's #24 racecar, football helmet, a dog and dog house, a monkey, a giant cupcake, and a penguin. Some recent cakes have been a pizza, chef's hat, and Topsy-Turvy (Mad Hatter Cake.) The last one didn't collapse - that was a real triumph! One of my best triumphs has been teaching my boys to cook. They'll never go hungry.
My cooking tragedies
The first time I cooked a turkey I relied on my thermometer to tell when it was done. It wasn't.

Byrdhouse Marinated Tomatoes and Mushrooms
Phenomenal. This was amazing and I will definitely be making this regularly while tomatoes are in season. I halved the recipe, but otherwise followed it exactly. I wouldn't change a thing!

Savory Chicken Brine
I used this brine before grilling chicken halves. The meat was probably the BEST chicken I have ever grilled. Period. It was moist, flavorful, perfect. I brined my chicken for about 8 hours. I will definitely use this recipe again!
