About this Cook
I am an energetic family woman and culinary student that spends most of my time in the kitchen, always eager to try out something new!
My favorite things to cook
I love working with all fresh ingredients to create semi-gourmet style meals that aren't too intimidating for the family.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I did not get to spend much time in the kitchen as a child, so I did not discover the joy of cooking for myself until after college. I try now to include my girls as much as I can in my kitchen. They always have fun and I find that they are more adventurous in trying new types of foods, venturing far from a pizza, burger, and plain "meat & potatos" palate.

Berry Crumb Bars
This was so easy and I was the talk of the party when I brought them! As mentioned before, I sifted the dry together first, then cut in the fat and finished by cutting in the egg. I used butter as well and split the dough into four so that I could make two different fruit types. I used canned pineapple that I slightly crushed and blueberry pie filling for the second, adjusting the sugar on the blueberry filling because I didn't want them to be too sweet. I baked two batches in 8 x 8 baking dishes and they came out wonderful! Thanks, I will definately make again! Next I will try apples and add walnuts.
