About this Cook
My mom taught me a lot of what I know - thanks, mom! I love baking sweets... my hips are glad my boys love eating them!
My favorite things to cook
Anything that is baked! Getting better at cooking food - I have surprised myself, my husband too, when I get inspired to try new things and they actually turn out!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Making pancakes with my oldest son on Saturday mornings. Eating warm brownies with my husband at 11 o'clock at night!
My cooking triumphs
Raspberry cake and my husband loved my raspberry chocolate brownies.
My cooking tragedies
When my cheesecakes end up with the "San Andreas Fault" down the middle of them.

Best Ever Pie Crust
Wow! It had been a while since I made a crust and my husband said tonight that it was almost better than the peach filling, :-) I haven't read all the reviews, but if there is any there that are not raving about this, they did something wrong. Beautifully golden and the bottom crust was as crispy as the top. Awesome flaky texture!

Oatmeal Cookie Pancakes
I didn't want to be at the stove all morning, so I 1/2d the recipe. Added 1/2 c flour, use applecider ving to make the buttermilk, used molasses since I didn't have brown sugar (left off the syrup). Smells great, we shall see.

Blueberry Coffee Cake III
I love this recipe! I will use the xtra milk this time. As for the topping-I use a bunt pan and put 1/2 in the bottom of the pan so it becomes a wonderful candied layer! Yum! and the other 1/2 on the top. Thanks for sharing this with us.
