About this Cook
Learned to cook from my mom and have, over the years, improved some of her recipes (lower fat & sugar). I cook & bake to please not only myself but my biggest hubby!
My favorite things to cook
I'll try just about everything
My favorite family cooking traditions
Turkey for Thanksgiving, ham for Christmas and Easter and pork and sauerkraut for New Year's
My cooking triumphs
My homemade masa & tamales.
My cooking tragedies
I once sent my husband to work (they were having a pot luck) with a pumpkin pie that I had forgotten to put in the sugar called for...needless to say, it was thrown out. Guess my mind was elsewhere that day!

Chocolate Pudding Fudge Cake
My hubby went nuts for this cake heated up and topped with vanilla ice cream! I used low fat sour cream, fat & sugar free chocolate pudding, applesauce for the oil, fat free milk and egg beaters and it was the best thing ever! Didn't even glaze it, just sifted a touch of powered sugar on top. Will use this recipe again and again! Thanks!!
