About this Cook
I'm a mother to three monsters. Oops, children. I'm an RN and my husband and I work opposite shifts to ensure one of us can usually be with the kids.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake and make candies. My best family memories involve food of some sort so I'm always making something to give the neighbors or take to work or have friends over. The kids always take the "cool" snacks to school and my husband complains that I'm trying to fatten him up for the holiday dinner.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My sisters and I used to make cut-out cookies together. Now I get with my husbands' family and we make tons of candy and anise (yuck) cookies that take all day. I love Thanksgiving and Christmas. I make most of the meal myself but it's nice having everyone enjoying the food and having a good time.
My cooking triumphs
I made my mothers' wedding cake. Or apple turnovers with real puff pastry. Yummy.
My cooking tragedies
I don't recall any real tragedies. I forgot I was grilling burges once and I brought in 2-inch charcoal briquets...and left a note saying I was going to buy lunch. The first thing I ever made was choc. chip cookies and I added 2 whole eggs-including the shell.

Pecan Delight
This was good, a little on the too-sweet side but we also had it without the whipped topping so maybe that would have helped.

Creamy Chocolate Frosting
Smooth, creamy, and delicious. I whipped it longer to use as a filling with my leopard sponge cake, and it was absolutely perfect!

One Bowl Brownies
This recipe has so many problems, I'm surprised that anyone likes it. Overly sweet even after I cut it down by 1/3 cup. Very oily, it looked like it was frying(and it was) while it was baking. There just anything positive I can say about these at all. The flavor is lacking. As others have stated the bottom is barely cooked while the edges are hard. Even in the mini muffin tin they didn't cook through correctly. Very disappointed.
