About this Cook
i was in the Navy for 9 years. I am happily married, and we have 2 cats, one yorkie and 4 freshwater fishtanks (African Rift Lake Cichlids). I work full time in an acute (lock down) psych ward, and never have a dull day!
My favorite things to cook
anything and everything. I am a newbie, so I just pull recipes that appeal to me and the hubby to try.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Honestly, i dont come from a family of cooks-i wish i had someone who had taken the time to teach me to cook-I would have loved it!
My cooking triumphs
Ill consider it a triumph when i can make no bake cookies that actually set right! lol
My cooking tragedies
for some reason, i used to make really great no bake cookies. Now, i cant make them to save my life lol.

No Bake Cookies V
these cookies look perfect, but did not set right. the boil time of one minute actually needs to be extended to 3-5 minutes like other recipes call for. I will use this recipe for the future, but modify my boil time.

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies III
my hubby and i LOVE this recipe! i did tweak a few things though. Since i use whole wheat flour, the first batch was a little dry-so the next batch i added more pumpkin and some brown sugar. they came out perfect! this recipe is a keeper! thanks for sharing it..

Chicken, Stuffing and Green Bean Casserole
My hubby and I absolutely LOVE this recipe. I tweak it a bit by adding a bit of garlic and sometimes use mixed veggies instead of just green beans. I also double the chicken portion for a larger portion of protein. We really love this recipe!
