About this Cook
I have a 3 year old son, a 2 year old daughter, and a husband. I am the only not-too-picky eater out of all of us! I love taking and editing pictures and also really like cooking.
My favorite things to cook
Enchiladas, broccoli casserole, cookies, bread, soup, Albondigas.. concoctions.
My favorite family cooking traditions
There are a few recipes made in my family (green bean casserole, eggnog pie, tuna soft tacos, etc) that I've never had anywhere else.. eventually I'll get around to posting them.
My cooking triumphs
Apple-butterscotch cookies were my favorite! Could have just been that they fulfilled my pregnancy craving at the time though.
My cooking tragedies
Breadsticks. I was low on ingredients and decided to use bisquick for them.. i got the recipe from their website... big mistake! they were dry and tasteless, and greasy.. yuck!

Cinnamon Rolls III
I don't think they are like cinnabun... but everyone has their own opinion. Easy to make. I put the dough in a bowl, covered it with plastic wrap, filled my sink with a few inches of warm water, then placed the bowl in the sink and covered with a towel.. dough rose well.. then after rolling up buns, I put in 9x13 dish.. turned my dishwasher to the very end of the dry cycle, and put the dish in there.. it got warm, but not TOO warm.. and they fluffed up again nicely. had to bake an extra 10 minutes though.. not sure why.. my oven is usually hotter than everyone elses.

Pumpkin Layer Cheesecake
Some said too much pumpkin flavor, some said too much cheesecake flavor.. so I guess it averages out. My problem with this recipe was that it wasn't very.. well.. pretty. It tasted ok though and was very simple.
