About this Cook
Stay at home mom always looking for new delicious recipes to make for my family.
My favorite things to cook
I love to make soups and desserts. Two of my favorite things to eat. I have been venturing out and trying to make at least one new recipe a week.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I always make the Italian cookie Pizelles for Christmas and Thanksgiving. It is a tradition that I have carried on from my grandmother. When growing up she started my love for baking and let us kids help with the process. She is now 94 and loves when I make Pizelles!
My cooking triumphs
Roasting a perfect whole chicken. I am always scared about checking the temp and level of doneness. I recently made a perfect chicken that hubby loved.
My cooking tragedies
Cutting into a raw piece of chicken is always a bad thing. :(

Baked Honey Mustard Chicken
Excellent! I didn't have time to cook it in the oven so I used a little oil and cooked in the frying pan. They were great. I marinaded in the pan and used about half the marinade in the frying pan to cook it. This one's a keeper!

French Breakfast Muffins
I didn't care for these much. I followed the recipe exactly. I'm glad that we tried them prior taking them to a breakfast potluck. Had to stop off at the store to pick up something else. They were dry and heavy.

Basic Cream Cheese Frosting
Really good! Came out thin. But stick it in fridge to firm it up.
