About this Cook
I'm married with two wonderful little boys ages 5&6.Jakob is my oldest,and David is my little one. I just celebrated my 6 year wedding anniversary in April (12 years together total,we were together through high school and married on our six year anniversary we were waiting for him to get through some college first).
My favorite things to cook
Just about anything I can get my hands on a recipe for. As long as it makes someone happy.
My favorite family cooking traditions
There were really no cooking mentors in my family. I kind of started to become obsessed with cooking in high school home ec. I loved having nothing to start and something absolutely delicious at the end. When we lived with my Grandmother food was only ever served two ways BURNT TO A CRISP or STILL FROZEN, never any happy medium. My mother obviously picked up her lack of cooking from her mother. Pork always was shoe leather and gross. So I never liked pork until I started cooking and discovered the flavor and juiciness of tenderloin. Not dried out chops.
My cooking triumphs
Toasted coconut cookies, Key lime pie, too many other recipes to list in this small space.
My cooking tragedies
Pancakes no matter from scratch, box of mix or Shake and Pour. So my husband makes them when we want them. First scratch chocolate cake didn't know there was a difference between bakng soda and baking powder. "Cake" and I use that term loosely looked and felt like FLUBBER. It was full of craters and turned out this strange orangey color.

Shrimply Delicious Shrimp Salad
I made this for my mother she said it was the best shrimp salad she has ever had. I unfortunately cannot taste this recipe due to a SEVERE shellfish allergy so I am taking her word for it. I subbed bacon in for the celery cause I was out of celery. It still gave it a great crunch and she loved the bacon accents(due to bacon used a only mild pinch of salt for seasoning).

Garlic Cheddar Chicken
This was absolutely delicious! They were right about there being no leftovers! Can't wait to make this again. Made as directed with just a bit less butter and used some olive oil to replace lost butter.
