About this Cook
I am a stay at home mom with 4 boys.
My favorite things to cook
I am very good at making desserts and baked goods. I get asked to make desserts for potlucks all the time.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom was a hotdish (a casserole in Minnesota) or out of the box type of cook. That's why I'm trying to improve my cooking skills, so my children grew up with fond memories of homemade meals, not spaghettios.
My cooking triumphs
Winning first place in a chili contest.
My cooking tragedies
The first cake I ever baked was horrendous. I didn't know there were differences between flours and I wound up with a 1 inch thick cake!!

Absolutely Ultimate Marinade
Entire family loved it! Let chicken marinade overnight in frig and tasted great. Topped some plain chicken breasts with marinade before grilling, tasted good, but definitely better flavor when marinaded overnight.
