About this Cook
Working mom and wife with two small children; always on the go.
My favorite things to cook
I enjoyed cooking much more when I had time -- now quick and easy is the rule. I still enjoy baking -- it satisfies my sweet tooth and is fun to do with my kids.
My cooking tragedies
When I doubled a flambe recipe and almost caught my cabinets on fire -- trying to impress guests! Ugh!

Pumpkin Cheesecake II
Wow! I made this without the pecans (I replaced with equivalent graham cracker crumbs). I also used light cream cheese and half and half instead of whipping cream. Simply unbelievable!

Special Cereal Bread
I made this with Total cereal and LOVED it! My husband and kids all agreed. I made the dough in the bread maker and baked it in the oven - just because I think the loaves come out nicer. This is likely to become my #1 bread recipe. All pantry items, super healthy, and SO good!

These are SO good but difficult to make. I've made two batches. As I made the first batch, I told myself I would never make these again (they are difficult and take lots of time and patience) Then I tasted them and knew I'd make them again! Rolling these takes some technique. I found that working with 1/4 of the dough at a time worked best. I cut the dough into 2-1/2 x 3" rectangles, spread the filling on the long side, rolled and shaped. This worked okay. I tried the "purse" technique that someone suggested and they just fell apart in the oven. I ate the ugly ones and sprinkled the rest with powdered sugar to cover the flaws. Also, I ended up having extra filling both times. I used the extra filling to make what I have coined as "Kipfel Bread" -- it's really, really good and I'll be posting it.
