About this Cook
I'm married and have two little ones. Life is busy working and taking care of the fam.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake. It helps that I have a sweet tooth!
My favorite family cooking traditions
In my family, my dad was more of a cook than my mom so I think I picked up his like of making roasts, chili, soups and more hearty meals. Because I love baking so much, my boys are starting to help me more and more with mixing things and making cookies and cakes. It's so much fun!
My cooking triumphs
I've had a few really good parties with lots of people and cooked every bit of food for it. Ribs, fresh fish, roasted corn and lots of salads and baked items. My two most requested items are my exceptional chocolate chip cookies and chewy oatmeal chocolate bars.
My cooking tragedies
Oh, there are many! My husband has been a trooper! It took me a long time to figure out how to make a good, tasty roast. I suck at making asian food, even though I love it so much.

Healthier Annie's Fruit Salsa and Cinnamon Chips
I absolutely love this recipe. The fruit really does not need any sugar if you use 3 T of preserves. It's seriously one of my favorite snacks!

Almond Rhubarb Coffee Cake
I make lots of rhubarb recipes and keep very few - they just don't 'do it' for me.. This one, though, is a keeper! I love the addition of almonds on top. I did make changes that other people had suggested - almonds only on top, cinnamon in the topping, and using applesauce instead of oil. I also used 3 c. of rhubarb. I also made it in a square cake pan to keep and two small loaf pans to give away as gifts. They all turned out great! I'll be making this one again and again!

Grilled Pheasant Poppers
Wow, these are great. My husband hunts but I hate eating pheasant so we usually give it away. This is the best pheasant dish I've had. I took it to a NYE party and people really loved them! I live in MN so grilling is tough in the winter... I just baked them and they turned out perfect!
