About this Cook
Hi, I'm Nique, mother of my gorgeous twin daughters and wife to a US ARMY soldier!
My favorite things to cook
I love abusing my slow cooker and bread machines. I will probably be replacing them in a few years from over use! I also love making cakes, and frosting. I like to play with recipes and make them different.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I didn't grow up with a lot of traditions. Except for Grandma's Lemon Meringue Pie. That recipe is super complicated and I can NEVER do the meringue justice, so I don't try!
My cooking triumphs
Discovering that I CAN cook! My mother was, and is, very much a throw it together kind of person. She rarely uses a recipe, and the results can be questionable! Discovering recipes and how wonderful and FUN cooking can be (as opposed to the chore mom made it seem) is my biggest triumph!
My cooking tragedies
KNOCK ON WOOD... I haven't had a real tragedy yet. My day will come! LOL

Banana Nut Bread II
This bread is so wonderful!!! I love banana breads, but am always looking for a new recipe. This one just came out so wonderful, right out of the machine I had a slice and it was incredible!! I did scale the recipe up 50% more and it still turned out great. I had to bake it a little longer than just my Expressbake 80. But I knew to check from reading the other reviews. I substituted about half the flour with whole wheat flour. Next time I'm going to replace some or all the margarine/butter with applesauce and add a little vanilla as recommended by several other reviewers. My 18 month old twins LOVE this stuff, one of them has her mouth stuffed full of bread right now!!!

Crunchy Honey Wheat Bread
This recipe turned out really well. I made it for sandwich bread and both my husband and I like it for that purpose. I felt like it was almost too dry though.

Spinach Bread
Fantastic Bread!!! I loved it straight out of the machine with some butter, and I love it as the bread for my lunchtime sandwich. My husband dislikes spinach and still loved this bread!
