About this Cook
I like creating, so, I approach most things with my artistic attributes, even when it comes to cooking. I try to work on "presentation." After trying an new recipe from allrecipes,I impatiently ask my husband "How many stars?" He is SO annoyed but hey, he goes back for seconds every time! ***smirk***
My favorite things to cook
I am inspired by whimsical and playful ideas which includes baking fun treats for my family, like a Candyland themed cake. I also enjoy making brownies, cupcakes, and decorating cakes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Picnics under the big tree on a lazy fall day and campfire nights in our yard.
My cooking triumphs
I recreated at home a favorite dish from a local mexican restaurant. My sweet husband and dear friend complimented on how fabulous it was, if not better.
My cooking tragedies
I am terrible, just terrible! at cooking asian inspired food! (Well I was! Allrecipes has definitely changed that!)

Peppy's Pita Bread
I LOVE this bread for many, many reasons. I doubled the batch and I am so glad I did, and yes it bakes in 5 minutes, another great reason right there. We dipped it in hummus, olive oil, seasoned olive oil, and made mini pizzas--all in one day! Now I am thinking this bread would be great for calzones since my house smelled like a pizzaria while it baked. I added a handful of bread dipping seasoning to the dough, ya know the mix of seasoning that the nice Italian restaurants place in the dish with the olive oil. Definately brush with olive oil. I can't say enough things about this bread! Thank you!
