About this Cook
I've been married for 22 years and have two beautiful daughters(17 & 21). I enjoy cooking and trying new recipes. I love to have parties and friends over for dinner. We enjoy traveling and a really good martini.
My favorite things to cook
I love to make appetizers! I guess because they go so well with cocktials!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I have made gingerbread houses with my girls since they were 7 years old. I can't wait to make them with my grandchildren one day.
My cooking triumphs
Learning how to cook outside on the grill. I can grill some great chicken,steaks and salmon on a cedar plank.
My cooking tragedies
I can't make candy. I have tried to make toffee and taffy and both have been a disaster.

Rainbow Cookies
After reading the reviews I used almond filling instead of paste and added 1 tsp of almond extract. Mixed chocolate with cream and butter. We love them and they look fantastic! Thanks for sharing a great recipe.

Chipotle Shrimp Tacos
So easy to make and my family loved them. I added fresh avocado and shredded cheese in the taco. 3 chipotle peppers was a perfect amount of spice for us. Don't leave out the lime juice!

Hot Fudge Ice Cream Bar Dessert
I used chocolate fudge topping, and put the cool whip on top of it. I also needed 24 ice cream sandwiches to make a double layer in a 9x13 pan. This is very easy to make, a great project with your kids. It tastes wonderful too!
