About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
I love baking cookies and brownies. I also am branching off into salsas and sauces.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I had to put into my wedding vows that I promised to always serve mashed potatoes with meatloaf!
My cooking tragedies
When I was first learning how to cook/bake I learned the most valuable lesson of all, READ. I was attempting peanut butter cookies and instead of using 3/4tsp of baking soda, I used 3/4 cup! Let me tell you there is no amount of sugar to add that would have helped.

Cheesy Chicken and Potato Casserole
This was great! Even got a 5 star rating from the husband who does not care for casserole type dishes. Followed all instructions along w/ parboiling the fresh potatoes but added frozen broccoli before poping in oven only because I didn't want to dirty another pot :) However I did not shred the chicken only because I have a non meat eater in the house but other than that it was wonderful, thanks for the recipe!!

Chewy Coconut Cookies
YUMMY!!! I made these on a whim and I am sooooo glad I did! Only difference, 1 2/2c flour and 1tsp of vanilla. Other than that, followed recipe to a "t". I'm sure that I'll find other goodies to add in and play around w/ them in the future as I know this has made it into my cookie rotation!!

Chocolate Chip Dream Bars
I've tried to describe these to friends and family after I made them and I've realized that there aren't enough great words in the human language that gives this dessert justice!!! It's just GOOD and you should make them, and double the recipe as ours were gone in a matter of a day. I did everything EXCEPT put a glaze on top. Only because I didn't have cocoa powder but realized that they didn't need it. So in lieu of that I put some shredded coconut on top before baking to counter the lack of sweetness the omitted glaze provided. Besides we're always looking for an excuse to put coconut on something. Anyway, SUPER easy, SUPER great, SUPER!! Going to be making them this weekend.
