About this Cook
I'm a married, working mother of three, who loves to bake much more than to cook! I am, however, starting to enjoy cooking more. No small thanks to the wonderful recipes I have found on this site. I particularly appreciate the reader reviews, which always helps to make a good recipe great!
My favorite things to cook
I love baking cookies and pies!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Making Christmas cookies with the children every year!
My cooking triumphs
I make a unique and delicious Oreo Truffle! :-)
My cooking tragedies
No matter what recipe I use, I can't seem to get the consistency of my pie crust correct! :-(

Angel Hair Pasta with Shrimp and Basil
DELICIOUS! Everyone in my house loved this, even my children, who don't even like shrimp! As always, the readers reviews helped me to make a good recipe even better! I followed the recipe with a few modifications: I used Linguine, instead of Angel Hair pasta; 1 large bulb of garlic; 1 small onion; 2 small cans of mushrooms; 1 small can of tomato paste and instead of white wine, I used a half pint of heavy cream. I also added more parsley and basil to flavor to my liking. This was great and I'll definitely make it again soon!

Lemon Cooler Cream Cake
Quick, easy and DELICIOUS! Like another reviewer, I used yellow cake and strawberry jello instead. The cake turned out perfectly - Moist, light and not too sweet or rich! To save even more time next time, I'll try using strawberry flavored Cool Whip for the topping.

Super Easy Chicken Noodle Soup
I added a few things to spice up this recipe and it was the BEST chicken noodle soup that I have ever made. I brought it to a work potluck lunch filled with tons of other soups and my entire crockpot was emptied with everyone telling me how wonderful the soup was! I added 2 cans of cream of chicken soup to thicken the soup (it adds so much flavor), 2 cans of chicken broth, fresh carrots, celery and mushrooms, garlic, 1 whole onion (take out when soup is done)and salt and pepper to season. It came out absolutely DELICIOUS! You can make it on the stove or in the crockpot. Hint: Freeze any leftovers and you only have to heat it up for a cold winter day!
