About this Cook
Stay at home mom with a flair for creativity. I'm blessed with the most wonderful and handsome husband and 3 beautiful boys in the world! I'm happy doing nothing else but being with them.
My favorite things to cook
I love experimenting! There are never enough delicious good-for-you recipes available so I enjoy making up my own. I change just about every recipe I run into to make it more healthy. It's fun to watch my kids fall in love with healthy food. Plus, when you eat a healthy meal you have calories open for dessert, which is my favorite thing to cook ... and eat! Stir-fry is a family favorite because it's fast, easy and you can put whatever you have on hand in it. Same with soup!!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Gigantic Christmas breakfasts, ornate birthday cakes.
My cooking triumphs
Learning the art of stacked cakes.
My cooking tragedies
Yeast bread..... took a while to get it right!

Simple White Cake
I recommend increasing milk to 3/4 c. and adding 1/2 t. salt if your butter isn't salted. I make cakes professionally and this recipe is great. Nice and sturdy for stacking, rich flavor for a white.

Apple Crisp Pie
Rolling out the dough was not a necessary step. I just poured the "crumbles" out from the mixing bowl into the pie pan and then pressed it into the bottom and up the sides, like I would a graham cracker crust. Quick and easy.

Peppermint Meringues
Perfect! As always, the keys to meringues are finesse & patience. Added a *tiny* splash of peppermind extract. It tasted NOTHING like toothpaste.
