Woke up at 8:30 this morning. Rolled over to see that my spouses side of the bed was empty. As I started to fall back to sleep. I heard him come in to the room. I peaked through my eyes to see him opening the curtains about the same time I smelled toast. To my amazement, he had made me… MORE

About this Cook
I am over 45 but every one thinks I am in my early 30's. My husband of 26 years is my best friend and when I am not working, I love spending time with him. I just finished my bachelor's degree and am now happy to spend time researching new recipes to feed him. Happy new year!
My favorite things to cook
Banana bread. Its the easiest thing to make with my kitchen aid mixer. Next, I like to make comfort foods, stews and sauces that make the house smell good.
My favorite family cooking traditions
On Thanksgving, my husband and I make the whole deal. The night before I make a couple of pumpkin pies. We bake a turkey, stuffing, gravy, mashed potatos, green bean cassorole for the two of us. We invite friends and have a great time.
My cooking triumphs
I made beef stew one night from a recipe I found on Allrecipes.com and my husband came into the kitchen and tasted it and started to cry. I said, "oh is it that bad." He said, "no its that good, it taste just like Nana's."
My cooking tragedies
One night my husband asked me to make pancakes for supper. After I made the pancakes, I realized that they didn't seem to fluff up. My husband started eating them and just looked at me between bites. I tasted one and pushed my plate back. They tasted like rubber bands, it seems the baking powder had expired and that was why there was no fluff. He ate all the pancakes on his plate and has since taken over making pancakes for the household.

Peppermint Bark
Per several reviews I made a few changes to make it worth the effort of two Hours.first,I made this with crushed candy canes not the peppermint candies. And I used both white chocolate and dark chocolate chips 12oz. instead of bar chocolate - in the microwave on the "melt" chocolate setting because I am simply not that patient while making 4 doz of the Sandy's supreme sugar cookies, which also turned out to be awesome.. Anyway, back to my point I chilled the first layer on wax paper with Pam sprayed on it to prevent sticking. On a whim, I broke the candy canes into smaller pieces and popped in the manual food chopper. It created fairly uniform pices with some sugar dust. Used a sifter to separate and put the small pieces on the first layer to avoid the challenge caused by too large pieces on the bottom layer. Used the larger pieces on the second layer to add pizazz and color. I highly recommend the use of a second layer of wax paper over the top of the finished product to break the pieces and keep the candy bits from flying about the room. We learned this the hard way, lol. The Big Guy immediately declared it as His! And put it in a container not to be shared as Xmas gifts...I think it was a huge success.. Total cost for 2 12 oz bags of chocolate and candy canes...5.60. Happiness of my hubby of 29 years? Priceless!

Sandy's Super Sugar Cookies
I found this recipe in my holiday edition of allrecipes the magazine. I came here to check the reviews before I began. I must start by saying, i consider myself an accomplished baker. But, I have previously been unable to master sugar cookies. With this recipe, I have finally succeeded. I halved the recipe, doubled the vanilla and left everything else as is. Wow! They were easy to roll, made firm, crisp cookies with the best taste ever. I will always use this recipe going forward! Thanks sandy for sharing this recipe. I will play with it in the future to try the other add ins. Happy holidays Y'all!
