About this Cook
I am a Mum of 6 ranging in age from 20 years old down to 1. I love scrapbooking, sewing and crafts, theme parks, playing on the internet, thrift stores and garage sales, reading, and collecting Disney Pins and Willow Tree. I love my cat Telly and my dog Zoey, and of course, my awesome husband and my kids have the very biggest part of my heart!
My favorite things to cook
My most requested dish at home is my Mexican Casserole. There usually isn't much leftover! I enjoy baking Christmas cookies, making pizzas with my children, and of course, I LOVE making anything that has chocolate in it!
My favorite family cooking traditions
We always have a special breakfast Christmas morning, and we bake cookies a few days before so we have some for friends/family and for Santa. Definitely love doing the traditional Thanksgiving with turkey, stuffing, potatoes and pumpkin pie. (and green bean casserole!)
My cooking triumphs
I consider anything a triumph that I didn't use a recipe for and the kids eat all of it without complaining!
My cooking tragedies
My first attempt at Black Forest Cake from scratch. Too sad to go into details... :(

Chocolate Cookie Cheesecake
The is BY FAR the best cheesecake I've ever had. It's time consuming, but it comes out perfect EVERY TIME. I wish I could give it 10 stars, but 5 will have to do! :)
