About this Cook
I am a mom to four little angels...10, 8, 5 and 2. I am a full time journalist---but a stay at home mom wanna' be. It's just not in the budget. One of my great joys is trying new recipes for my growing family. As soon as they get off the bus, the first question is "what did you make for dinner today?"
My favorite things to cook
Light and healthy meals
My favorite family cooking traditions
My ten year old helps with the cooking. My eight year old helps with the prep work. My five year old's job is to crack the eggs and my two year old is the official taste tester.
My cooking triumphs
My kids would rather have my good cooking than Happy Meals!!!! Sometimes we just run through the drive through to get the toy... then pop home and make a lovely quiche together!
My cooking tragedies
Frying... If it involves hot oil... I fail miserably. I just don't get it.

Candied Sweet Potatoes
These candied sweet potatoes were to DIE for! Sweet but not too sweet. Super easy to make... kids DEVOURED them! Grownups enjoyed them too! This recipe replaces my old sweet potato recipe!

Cheesy Creamed Spinach
FINALLY! A DELICIOUS CREAMED SPINACH RECEIPE!!! Very flavorful.. not at all bitter---- flavors mingled nicely... not overpowered by one flavor... kids LOVED this! I really wrung the heck out of the cooked spinach... very important! Also... I am watching my fat and only added a 1/4 cup of heavy cream... FAB-U-LOUS!

Pumpkin Maple Pie Supreme
This pie was sensational! It has a wonderfully light custard quality... ate the last piece today (six days after Thanksgiving) and it was wonderful! I mistakenly baked it at 375 degrees... and the top bubbled and carmelized adding a nice crunchy coating on the top... this will now be the only way I'll make pumpkin pie!
