About this Cook
When I started using this website I was a young wife and mama and fulltime college student...I wanted to make quick yummy meals, and I wanted to bake fun things with my kiddo, and make everything from scratch. In the almost five years since I've used this website, I feel like a much more accomplished cook :0) I still no longer make pancakes from the box or anything! love it.
My favorite things to cook
Everything but meat...Im horrible at cooking it.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Cooking/smoking meat from the Alaskan wilderness! And of course No Bake cookies, a treat I loved from my grandmother that my boys just beg for.
My cooking triumphs
Making a reallly cute cake for my sons 1st birthday, and every other dinner that scores well. I finally got to make my own honey and jam in 2010! I was so excited, it was years in the 'wanting.' :-) Made jam and honey with Alaska's state flower: fireweed.
My cooking tragedies
Tragedies occur in my kitchen more often than not!

Paleo Chocolate Frosting
I think this is such a neat way to make frosting while using healthier fats. When I made the recipe as is, there was a bit of bitter aftertaste that was just too strong for our tastes (plus I was trying to get this by 12 seven year olds for a birthday party and it did not pass my son's initial taste test). SO I added some powdered sugar until the bitterness was covered and voila! The cupcakes with this frosting were the hit of the party (we also had regular cupcakes with buttercream frosting available). The extra powdered sugar does not make this frosting extra healthier by any means but it was definitely very good. Thanks for the recipe!

Chocolate Velvet Ice Cream
I think this is a good starting point, but I havent found a way to 'perfect' it just yet. Made just as, it was just too sweet to me, and I've got a sweet tooth. I've made it a few more times doing different things-less cocoa, more salt, etc etc...and still not there. Until another reviewer can find the thing that tops this recipe off, I might have to venture off with my search for the ultimate homemade chocolate ice cream. Thanks though, sooo close!

Rhubarb Strawberry Jam
I decided to give this recipe a shot just because of the reviews-and I am SO glad I did. It is SO yummy! This is one of two things I have made during my marriage where my husband has said, "this is good, you definitely need to make more of this." I must always have a jar on hand now. I recommend to anyone who is shy with rhubarb to give it a shot-I am SO glad I did.
