About this Cook
Christian, stay-at-home mom with 2 little ones. I love taking care of my beautiful old house and hanging out with my family. Also love the outdoors- always trying to be more a part of the world around me. I like to make soap, jewelry, and sew crafts to sell at farmer's markets. Love poetry and reading.
My favorite things to cook
I just love trying new things and filling the house with wonderful aromas!
My favorite family cooking traditions
We make the best Christmas candies around!
My cooking triumphs
One of the best was when we had no money whatsoever and the food stores were very low and I created this delicious rice and bean concoction that I will never be able to replicate.
My cooking tragedies
I made a ton of this "pumpkin black bean bake" because I just knew we would love it so much. I thought it was "okay", but my husband and kids didn't like it, and I wound up freezing most and eventually pitching it. Fail.

Chantal's New York Cheesecake
Perfect classic cheesecake. As another reviewer said, it is a "purist's" cheesecake. I followed the recipe and directions exactly, and it turned out wonderful! Cheesecake Factory, eat your heart out :) We eat it plain or with raspberry sauce and whipped cream.

Awesome Chicken Noodle Soup
I make this recipe a lot. It is a very good base. I usually use chicken stock and add more carrots and celery. Everyone raves about this chicken noodle soup. Even my Grandma loves it :)
