Just me & the new Hubby!
About this Cook
3 boys (adults) and my husband make me WANT to cook for them all the time!
My favorite things to cook
Desserts (pie!), anything French (Beef Bourguignon)& anything old fashioned, from those old church cookbooks that have old fashioned ingredients labels.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Christmas cookies, baking them early in the fall & freezing them. Nothing better than a good sugar cookie with frosting fresh out of the freezer! (not freezer burnt!)
My cooking triumphs
Lasagna for a group of 35 people & everyone loved it! Not one piece of it left (8 pans)...took me 2 days to cook it all but it was worth it.
My cooking tragedies
I absolutely cannot make anything "fried" - fried chicken, fish, etc - anything that requires an inch of oil to cook in and I'm out of my league.

The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies
You couldn't mess this dough up if you tried! I have been looking for a good sugar cookie recipe since my grandmother's recipe book was lost in a fire - I think I've maybe tried and rejected at least 50 of them. This one is so easy, and so great to work with I didn't even use once pinch of flour or sugar with my rolling pin! No joke! I used parchment paper to roll-out and on the baking sheets. I would recommend this, especially for a first time baker. Awesome taste too - I just can't get over the dough though. I didn't change one thing on this recipe right down to the baking time. To whomever created this recipe and also the person that shared it - thanks from the bottom of mine and my teenagers stomachs!

French Silk Chocolate Pie
GREAT Pie - great taste, so good. My 3 boys and my husband ate one whole pie by themselves over Thanksgiving. Didn't change a thing other than decorating the top a bit different.

Key Lime Pie I
Great pie - filling could be a bit lighter. I added more a bit more whipped egg whites to the second one I made and it was delicious.
