About this Cook
I am the mother of a one year old whom is not very picky and loves hot food! My Pseudo-husband enjoys the good food that I cook but not being a tester! He's happy to tell me what he thinks about everything. I've recently gotten a love for cooking and I want to try everything! I like dinner ideas that are quick, easy, and uber delicious.
My favorite things to cook
I like to make everything. As long as I've got someone there to eat it.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Sugar cookies at christmas time. Banana or Zucchini bread. Also Pumpkin bread and hot chocolate when it's cold.
My cooking triumphs
Perfect no bake cookies, fudge, peanut brittle, baked chicken, chili, and an assortment of made-up recipes by me.
My cooking tragedies
Oatmeal raisin cookies. I can't seem to get them right.

Vanilla Crepes
Everything in this recipe was excellent. I used several different types of filling. My family (including my two year old) loved it!

Spiced Pears and Pomegranate
An excellent way to use pomegranate. I usually make them the night before I need them and let them sit for a while in the fridge. They are good as a pancake topping or a short cake topping. Whipped cream is good on top of it too. Also good to use in oatmeal.

Creamy Hot Chocolate
I love this recipe and make it again and again. It's great to keep made in the fridge, heat as you want it. I add cinnamon and nutmeg to it sometimes. Other times I add allspice or pumpkin pie spice. It's good in so many ways.
