I love to bake; cakes, cookies, and other treats. I like to find ways to make them with less fat and calories, without sacrificing taste. I also love my Crock Pot.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Lemon sugar cookies, banana bread, snicker doodles, pumpkin bread, Italian Crock Pot meatloaf and chicken and noodles.
My cooking triumphs
Cherry pie!
My cooking tragedies
