About this Cook
I'm a 31-year-old wife and mom. After my 9-year-old daughter was born, I realized that my family couldn't (and shouldn't) live on Hamburger Helper forever. So I subscribed to a cooking magazine and slowly started teaching myself how to cook. Which is a good thing, because now I also have my 4-year-old son, and he eats EVERYTHING.
My favorite things to cook
Anything that's simple, healthy, and quick.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom always makes a HUGE batch of cookies around Christmastime, and this year I plan to carry on that tradition.
My cooking triumphs
I decided, despite my lack of expertise, that I would make a pumpkin-swirled cheesecake for Thanksgiving dinner. It turned out wonderfully, with only a small crack on the edge (that I covered up with spiced whipped cream so nobody would notice). It got RAVE reviews and now I'm getting requests to make it for Christmas dinner!
My cooking tragedies
My first attempt at making a pot roast was a DISASTER. Somehow I managed to burn it (?). I haven't tried making one since, even though my husband keeps telling me "It wasn't THAT bad." Oh, yes. It was.

Sparkling Punch
This was pretty good! My husband really enjoyed eating the oranges out of the punch bowl after everyone left lol.

Peanut Butter Chip Chocolate Cookies
These are SO GOOD. I use them to bribe my baby brother to help do yard work so I don't have to :). They're his favorite cookie! Thank you!

Pizza Pasta
A winner for my family! My 5-year-old actually ate it, which is saying something. Will definitely make again. Thank you.
