About this Cook
My favorite family cooking traditions
Baking for holidays! Can't beat it, no matter what kind or for what holiday!
My cooking triumphs
Anything that I make for dinner that gets an "Exceptional" from my husband! I've only been cooking since we moved in together about 4 years ago so I'm still learning and I get really excited when I've made something that he raves about. My favorite is when he shares w/ his coworkers and they request more!
My cooking tragedies
While pregnant I decided that I really wanted Apple Cake at 10pm on a night when my husband was out of town. By the time I'd peeled and diced and mixed and baked it was near midnight. As I pulled the cake out of the oven, it slipped from the pot holder, burnt my hand and I dropped it on the floor! Half of it was still edible but since I had taken a reviewer's advice and changed something in the recipe, it didn't taste the same and to a pregnant lady w/ a craving, that was the worst part! My husband now reminds me not to bake while he's away!

Old-Fashioned Peach Cream Pie
This pie is super easy to make and really delicious! I saved half the topping to put on muffins b/c it does make a lot!

Awesome Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting
Gave this only 4 stars b/c I made a substitution. After reading lots of the reviews, I subbed out one cup of the oil with unsweetened applesauce. Now I didn't taste this myself b/c it was a Thank You gift for my husband's office but the comments I got back were amazing and included converting someone who doesn't even like carrot cake to someone who had 2 slices! It was moist and delcious! The pineapple is the key! Great recipe!

BBQ Pork for Sandwiches
My husband who grew up on "Cajun Microwave" BBQ pork thought this was fantastic!! I got rave reviews from my in-laws as well. So tender and delicious! I used beer and broth and while it smelled funky when I got home, it tasted amazing! So tender! This is a definite keeper! Thanks!!
