My Fairytale House
About this Cook
I am married and have a 2 year old son and a baby girl due Aug 11. I work part time and love to cook and bake. It is therapy for me to try new recipes!
My favorite things to cook
Everything, really!! I love to make pie, bread & especially breakfasts. I try to stay away from desserts and am cooking more healthy than ever! It makes a huge difference in our weight and the way we feel!!!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Holidays! I especially love July 4th. We have a BIG small town parade each year and I always have the whole family over for the same cookout each year.
My cooking triumphs
I just recently had great success in making my first apple pie all by myself including the crust. It was a smashing success. My husband and I recently catered a wedding of 250 mostly by ourselves! Hard work, but a HUGE success.
My cooking tragedies
I had one mild one that I can remember. I was making chili soup at a school where I worked and accidently put extra red pepper instead of chili powder just b4 serving because I thought it was a bit flat. Too late....but some did tell me later it was the best chili they ever had. It was the ones who loved spicy things. The rest.....well, dranks lots of water.

Buttermilk Prairie Waffles
I followed the recipe almost exactly. Only 2 exceptions....I used half white spelt flour and only half of the salt (thankfully) To me they needed some sweetener and they seemed a bit rubbery and eggy. I will probably not make these again. I will stick with the Whole Grain Waffles also on this site.

Pectin-Free Strawberry Rhubarb Jam
I used 1 cup less sugar and boiled it for 45 minutes. It turned out perfect. My mom loved it so much I gave her a pint and plan to make more tomorrow!

Quinoa, Beet, and Arugula Salad
I have made this many times and I prefer to add twice the amount of beets and a bit more sugar to offset he vinegar. I use feta cheese. WINNER!!!!
