About this Cook
im a 24 year old married mother of 6.....4 cats and 2 dogs that is. my husband is a human garbage disposal and will eat all leftovers. me and him are skinny fat kids who love to try new foods.
My favorite things to cook
SOUPS! i love to make soups, chowders, and stews. ethnic foods too. i also bake some bangin cookies, but everyone loves my fudge more than anything else. i recently discovered that cooking in a crock pot is amazing.
My favorite family cooking traditions
my grandma makes awesome pies for thanksgiving.
My cooking triumphs
i was in charge of thanksgiving in 2008 for the first time, and it turned out successful! i even made lemon meringue for my mom and she said it was at good as my grandma's! i prefer the pumpkin myself.
My cooking tragedies
this one time i tried to make snickerdoodles from a recipe on this site and they came out like little stones. the next recipe i tried for them was much better :) also....i suck at cheesecakes.

Janet's Rich Banana Bread
we love this recipe, and make it weekly. a few changes based on reviews: soften butter, dont melt it. beat butter with sugar until creamy. i use 1/2 c white and 1/2 c brown sugar. 1 tsp lemon juice at the same time as the vanilla. add 1 tsp baking powder with the baking soda, and add 1 tsp cinnamon. mash the bananas, dont just slice them. have substituted buttermilk and whipping cream for the sour cream, and both worked fine. yogurt would probably work as well. i usually double the batch and make half in a loaf pan and half into 24 muffins. (without liners.) i freeze the muffins, and reheat them as needed. they take about 17 minutes.

Quick and Easy Chicken Noodle Soup
i sauteed the carrots with the celery and onions, and added garlic cloves. i cut the chicken into 1" cubes, and added them raw after the broths. simmered for about an hour, until all veggies were soft and tender, and chicken was cooked through. i added a dash of cayenne pepper for some zip. cooked the noodles separately, and added them in at the end. VERY good soup, will be my stand by for chicken soup. thanks!
