About this Cook
I'm a married mom with a VERY busy schedule. My husband & I work long hours in the construction supply industry and teach karate 3 nights a week. I have 3 wonderful stepsons, 1 stepdaughter, an active 3 year old son, and a baby on the way. We've also got 3 dogs and 2 hermit crabs. Our life centers around our family and our faith.
My favorite things to cook
I'll try anything just about once. My family are not picky eaters, so that helps. I like to try different things, but favor anything grilled or casseroles. I love to bake, but don't usually have time.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Christmas is where the baking begins... There's always LOTS of cookies. I made the tried & true and always throw in a few new ones to keep things interesting. We give them away to friends & family, take trays to work, and eat them at home, of course.

Peach Pie
Overall...very good recipe. Easy to assemble, followed the 15 mins @ 450 then 30 @ 350, added the tbsl of cornstarch as others suggested. Looked BEAUTIFUL when it came out of the oven. I never made a peach pie before and was quite proud of myself....mission accomplished! Almost....I ended up with WAY too much liquid, but crisis averted....turned it into a wonderful cobbler and topped with some vanilla ice cream!! I'm pretty sure that the excess liquid was my fault though....I used peaches I froze last year and they were only about 1/2 thawed when I made the pie. I didn't account properly for all the excess liquid I'd get. Will definitely keep this and use it again...with fresh peaches next time!

Four Cheese Sauce
Make this tonight and it turned out great. I had frozen some heavy cream, which I defrosted in the microwave. I was concerned that it would get watery, but it didn't. I also didn't have the exact cheeses the recipe called for, so I used a combination of parmesean, swiss, smoked gouda, & feta along with a touch of garlic powder & black pepper. It turned out beautifully...which says a lot for me. (I'm not that good at altering receipes.) Put it over a comination of Radiatore pasta and steamed asparagus. The Radiatore pasta held the sauce perfectly. This kept my 15 & 3 year old boys happy with a new pasta combination. The other plus with this recipe is that it was very easy & quick to put together on a busy karate night for our family. Thank you so much for the recipe!!!!!
