About this Cook
i'm a mother of four, two teens and a set of twin toddlers, YIKES! born and raised in idaho , with a few years in wyoming after getting married, sooooo glad to be back home!
My favorite things to cook
anything edible. desserts are my specialty, while my husband makes the main courses. oldest daughter practicing to become a chef, in hopes of going to culinary arts school in the next year.
My favorite family cooking traditions
homemade christmas gifts. every year my teens and i decide what to make, it's different every year, cookie platters, candy boxes, "cookies in a jar" and other mixes, and non food items like homemade body powder, facial scrubs, milk bath,etc. we have fun planning preparing and delivering "homemade" gifts to family and friends.
My cooking triumphs
teaching my teens to cook so if i hear "what's for dinner?" i can reply "whatever you make for us!"
My cooking tragedies
any time i try to out-do my husband in the kitchen only to have him make something better.

I like trying new recipes, so I gave this one a shot. It was easy to make, but had to hand stir in the most of the whipped topping because it was too much for my blender ( holds 7 cups). I have never used cardamon and was shocked at the price, luckily the store sells it in bulk so I could buy only the amount needed. As for the taste, it was very light, but I had a hard time getting past the grainy texture, I assume is from the bread. Not sure if I will be making this again, but if I do I will make a few changes and play with it a bit. Maybe cocoa or espresso powder in place of the cardamon and omit the bread.

Seven Spiced Shark Steaks
I chose this recipe for my first time having shark, and I was not disappointed.I did cut down to 1 tablespoon chili powder and black pepper as I don't care for too much hot spices. I will definatly make the rub to try with other meats.

Red, White, and Blue-Misu
This is a very refreshing twist to a classic tiramisu. I could only give it four stars because it does lack a little in flavor without the coffee liquer. I will definatly make this again.
