My New look!
About this Cook
I'm a 48 year old SAHM/WAHM. I have Girl twins, born in August 2006. My girls are the absolute joy of my life and we have already started cooking together. I'm a graphic designer, which luckily lets me work from home so that I can be with my girls. My husband is a wonderful man and an awesome father. I also have a 20-yr-old stepson and he's really good with his little sisters.
My favorite things to cook
I'm mostly known for my baking, but I like to cook too. I want to get more adventurous and try more baking, I love watching the cake decorating specials. I am also planning to attempt pastries at some point.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I guess my favorite cooking traditions would be the baking I do at holidays. There's certain cookie recipes that are always requested. I hope to have some new traditions in the coming years with my daughters.
My cooking tragedies
Luckily I haven't had any really that I can remember, or none so bad that they stick out. If something goes wrong, I just try to learn from it and not make the same mistake again!

Morning Glory Muffins I
I LOVE these muffins and have made them several times. The problem is they're almost TOO good! I could probably eat all of them myself! The only change I make is to make them a little larger then I will only eat one at a time instead of 2 (or 3 or more!) I haven't made any other changes but I might experiment a bit just to see what I can do with them! UPDATE: I made these today and my tweaks were to that I used 2 Granny Smith Apples that I did NOT peel and I shredded them like the carrots in the food processor. To compensate for the extra moisture I used 1 cup of wheat flour and only used 1 cup of sugar. Also as suggested, I plumped the raisins in some water in the microwave before adding them. I don't use the topping on mine, I never have wheat germ or walnuts around. Now if I can just not sit here and eat them all...

Apple Crisp II
OH MY!!! Apple crisp is my ALL TIME FAVORITE dessert ever and after years of searching for just the right recipe to make at home, THIS IS IT! I made it in a 9x9 pan with 1/2 the apple mixture, using 1/2 brown sugar and white sugar. I used the full crust mixture as suggested by other reviewers. Definitely need to use Granny smith or other tart firm apples as the mixture is plenty sweet. Also did not use the water. Unfortunately the only thing I was missing was some good quality vanilla ice cream to melt on top! I just might have to go out and buy some to go with my second (and maybe 3rd!) serving!

Spiced Butternut Squash Soup
Excellent soup! I pretty much followed the recipe except I used 1 potato and 1 apple, next time I think I will probably use 2 apples and no potato. I didn't have any allspice so I substituted Pumpkin Pie Spice for all the spices. I also used milk instead. It wasn't as thick or creamy as I thought it would be but it was still really good. I will definitely make this one again!
