About this Cook
I am a stay at home mother of two. My son is 16 months, and my daughter is 4 months. I really enjoy cooking, especially for my family. I also like to read and write.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake cookies and cakes. I also am a big breakfast person. I love having an early saturday breakfast to start the day, and a late sunday brunch so we can relax for the rest of the day.
My cooking tragedies
When I first met my husband, I had also just started learning to cook. My mom showed me how to make this really awesome spaghetti sauce so I decided to make it for him. I was so concerned about the sauce, that when I went to dish it up, I realized that I hadn't even boiled the noodles.

Lemon Cheesecake
This recipe turned out great, with my own modifications. I made the graham cracker crust from scratch and I added 1 tsp. lemon zest to it. I also substituted the egg substitute for 2 eggs. It kind of takes away from being low fat, but it tastes better. The cheesecake turned out excellent on its own, but it did need something. So I made a lemon-blackberry sauce. Here is the recipe: 2 C. blackberries, 2 tsp. vanilla, 1/4 C sugar, 1/4 C water, 1 tbsp. lemon juice. Combine all ingredients, while the sauce is cooking smash the balckberries with a masher. Bring the sauce to a boil and simmer on low 10 minutes. Strain the berry sauce over a bowl. The sauce in the bowl will be seedless and very yummy over the cheesecake. I made 4 of them over the Easter holiday and they were a big hit.

Slow Cooker Spare Ribs
These are the best ribs I have ever had! I did modify the recipe a little bit though. First of all, I changed the amount of servings to feed 6 people. Second, instead of using 2 cans of tomato soup, I used 3/4 can tomato soup, and 1/2 can of ketchup. Third, I only used one onion and about a teaspoon more brown sugar. Finally, I used country style ribs instead of spare ribs. I made these for a dinner party I had, and everyone raved over them. Everyone who came, left with the recipe. They are awesome. Enjoy!
