About this Cook
I'm a busy mom to the cutest little boy, Landon. I live in upstate NY in the same town I grew up in. I live with my boyfriend and son in our new house, which we are working on making our own. I started cooking when I was quite young, probably 10, and by the time I was 12 was cooking dinner for the family. Someone had to save us from rice a roni and chef boyardee! I love to try new things and have been known on more than one occassion to just throw stuff together and make it work. Hey= they make pizza delivery for a reason, right?!
My favorite things to cook
I bake to when I'm stressed, and when I'm cold ( nothing like a warm oven and the smell of tasty treats to warm you up!). I like to cook all sorts of things, Italian, mexican, grilling, and let's not forget the all important "man-food" category!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanksgiving, and making my grandma's pie crust from scratch. Fall is my favorite- the air is crisp and all I want is apple pie.
My cooking triumphs
Pulling off Thanksgiving dinner for 20!
My cooking tragedies
Some experiments just don't pan out!

Simple White Cake
Not complicated and easy to make. However, the cake is very dense and a little tasteless. Good cake for stacking when you need more structure, but not great tasting. Also- takes longer to bake than stated- a lot longer. I had to turn the oven down to prevent burning the outside of the cake! I might try tweaking a little, but more than likely would not make again.

Chicken Enchiladas II
Great basic recipe! I used leftover roasted chicken, and added some jalepeno slices for a little extra kick!

Blueberry Sour Cream Coffee Cake
Very good! Sweet, but still delicous! I didn't make the strudel mix and just drizzled some lemon frosting (lemon juice and confectioners sugar) over the top- that helped cut the sweetness and enhanced the taste of the blueberries! Yum!
