About this Cook
I am a married mother of two boys. I am a medical transcriptionist and a church musician. I love music, cooking, reading, camping and spending time with my family. My mother was a convenience cook who didn't teach me a lot about cooking, so I've had to learn my way around the kitchen over the years. I love to try new recipes. My boys are very picky, so I would love suggestions from other moms to get my children to eat healthy!
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake and make desserts. I send a lot of things to my hubby's office so I'm not tempted to eat it all myself! I'm trying to get my family to eat "cleaner" and eliminate a lot of processed foods by cooking with fresh ingredients. It's not as hard as I thought it would be!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My Gram was famous for her pies and cookies, and my mom makes the BEST lasagna! Some of my family favorites are Mom's potato stuffing and Dad's "red flannel hash."
My cooking triumphs
My 9-year-old son brags to his friends about my brownies!
My cooking tragedies
I've never been able to make really good biscuits. They always turn out like hockey pucks.

Sweet and Gooey Chicken Wings
Made these last night for the Super Bowl. The sauce is wonderful! We actually couldn't get wings, so used drumsticks. My husband coated them in flour, salt & pepper and fried in oil just until crisped on the outside. Then put in a baking dish and poured sauce over, baked for 20 minutes, turned over and spooned sauce over and baked another 20 minutes. They were awesome! My boys LOVED them! (I didn't have fresh ginger on hand, so used 1/4 teaspoon of ground ginger).

Strawberries and Cream Cake
Made this cake for my parents' 50th wedding anniversary. What a fabulous cake! It was easy to make and delicious. The icing was a little sloppy - hard to pipe for decoration. Other than that, I give it a thumbs up! Everyone loved it!
