About this Cook
I am a Stay at home mother of 3 children ages 5, 3, and 2 so my house is never quiet and it never holds still, but I wouldn't change it for anything. I enjoy cooking healthy meals for my family, and it is always a big plus when it is quick and easy. My husband and I have been married for 7 years and he loves the fact that he married a woman who likes to cook.
My favorite things to cook
I have recently started baking a lot. I have done birthday cakes for all my kids birthdays as well as everyone in my extended family, and I have to say I LOVE IT. I love to bake breads, cinnamon rolls, muffins, cookies, and many other things.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love making huge decorated cakes for all the birthdays. We also have a just our family dessert Christmas night. That way I get to spend extra special time with our kids and my husband. I bake and make candies and we have a great time together.
My cooking triumphs
Getting over the fear of trying new things. My new saying is the worst thing that can happen is I have to call for Pizza or make a run to the store for a cake if I screw it up. No more pressure to be perfect that's not how you learn
My cooking tragedies
I will say that every time I was pregnant with one of my kids I would mess up every dessert that I made. I would always swap the amount for one ingredient with another ones amount. Yah they were not always salvageable.

Gooey Butter Cookies
I Loved these cookies!!! I made them really quick for a late night snack for my husband and they were a hit. I couldn't stop eating them and I had to make another batch the next day just so my husband could have more than 3 of them. yum yum

Grandmother Stougaard's Caramel Pecan Sweet Rolls
very yummy! I would recommend turning them out of the pan as soon as they come out of the oven. I waited just a minute and the sauce had been absorbed already. But other than that I will be making these again. My family can't get enough of them.

No Bake Sugar Free Cheese Cake
This recipe was great. I did do sugar free strawberry jello instead and made the crust from sugar free shortbread cookies. I put some strawberries on top and My family couldn't tell that it was sugar free. Now I have a guilt free dessert for the summer. Thank you all for the hints!!
