About this Cook
I'm mom of 12 (stay-at-home),still have 2 kids at home,both in high school.I am used to doing mass amounts of cooking and it's now hard to adjust for just two at home! I can do major vegetarian cooking ,but know my way around a roast too!I always have major holiday cooking,when married and single kids come home and bring their kids or friends,too. Lots of fun! I consider myself an excellent cook.
My favorite things to cook
Big gourmet breakfasts! Also homemade ,handmade bread.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Christmas eve dinner for all,Thanksgiving dinner is always interesting too.I try to vary the recipe's just a bit to keep it interesting.
My cooking triumphs
my pies are works of art,and taste good too.
My cooking tragedies
sometimes I can over cook fish if I'm not paying attention.

Maple Cream Cheese Frosting
Made it and it definitely needs a splash of milk and a little more vanilla or essence of maple

Cajun Crawfish and Shrimp Etouffe
I made this for my husbands birthday as a surprise since its a favorite of his. He raved on and on about it ,that it was better than the pricey restaurants version. And NO it's not difficult to make at all! A bit spicy for me,but easily corrected. We had it over mashed potatoes (!) since that was also a favorite side of his.
