About this Cook
I am a stay@home mom, (my dream job), and I err on the side of the brain where creative lives. I like to try things I haven't done before, love fun, music, painting, the kind on walls and fences.Playing with my kids and making sure they arent a bunch of deadbeats when it comes to imagination. I cook a lot mostly because someone has to feed these ppl. I don't mind it but ...if I had 'more' help with the dishes...:) I am also very picky when it comes to what tastes good. So if I love it ...you'll know.
My favorite things to cook
Breads all kinds,(haven't tried croissants yet tho), Desserts, dinner, suppers, you name it I'll try it. Anything.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Butter sage dressing(to die for) the only thing we eat with turkey. Apple pie. Shortbread cookies. Gingerbread cookies and Jam Jams. Oh! and coke ribs.(yum!)
My cooking triumphs
oh my goodness...this one is easy. Cinnamon Buns.(At least that is what ppl rave about) and apple pie, and pretty much anything I've made more than once. And homemade Pizza's.
My cooking tragedies
Most of these happened when I was younger. Like mixing thgs tog w/o a recipe just to see if you can make something. Yup... that was bad.

Focaccia Bread
This bread is awesome! you can mix the dry ahead throw it in a zip-lock and add the wet when you are in a hurry to make something filling and delicious w/o the rise times of regular breads. You can put whatever you want on the top and experiment if you like but its great the way it is. I have sliced this in half and added ham, mayo, or made grilled cheese with it as well. Nothing to complain about this is for sure. And smells great while baking.

Mushroom and Mascarpone Ravioli
This was one of the most delicious fillings I have ever had, and is going into my cookbook 4ever! The one thing I did not do (based on what others said) was use the won ton wrappers. Instead, I decided on making my own fresh pasta and using a rippled edge cookie cutter to make the ravioli shape. It took a while. If I were going to do it from scratch I would have to start a 3pm to have it ready for dinner but so worth it. This is a great recipe! I gave the ravioli to others to try. They loved it!
