About this Cook
I have been married for three years and I am still trying to adapt to cooking for a man who will not eat any vegetables, potatoes and corn are the only exceptions. However he does have a sweet tooth that I indulge all too often. I graduate from college in May 2008 and will be a Middle School Math teacher!!
My favorite things to cook
Desserts and mostly chicken or Italian foods.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Me, my mother in law, and two sister in laws love to cook! My favorite thing is to buy them cooking gadgets or cookbooks.
My cooking triumphs
I won a baking contest at church with my Caramel Pecan Cheesecake-I won a chocolate fountain!!
My cooking tragedies
I thought I had lost my cooking skills, it turned out that my oven lost it's ability to control its thermostat! Thank goodness...nice new oven has restored my cooking confidence!

Annie's Fruit Salsa and Cinnamon Chips
This is absolutely awesome! My sister is pregnant and has been craving fruit...she absolutely devoured this! I did change it a little of course. I added two bananas and didn't add the raspberries. I did reduce the sugars and preserves. This was awesome with the chips!

These looked like they weren't going to set up they were really shiny but they did and they were good.

Chewy Coconut Cookies
These were great after making the vanilla 1 tsp. My family loved the tenderness. They do firm while cooling so once I realized that it helped. Enjoy!!
