About this Cook
I am a true foodie born and raised by foodies. My mother has instilled in me homemade cooking is way better than store bought. It may look good in a bakery display but it will never taste as great as it looks. Homemade is filled with love from your heart. I love to search for new recipes in my spare time if not reading. If you can't find me in my kitchen more than likely you will find me working for my poop business for pets or conducting legal research for the law firm I work for. otherwise I spend the rest of my time with family and friends through my church. I love life and what god has blessed me with.
My favorite things to cook
Just about everything. Especially desserts. NO meal is complete without the sweet.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Birthday meals and homemade cakes. Xmas cookies. And my new tradition brought by my new awesome sister in law homemade perogies. YUMMY!!!
My cooking triumphs
Becoming creative with Birthday cakes and confident in decorating without classes. And experimenting with recipes and adding and deleting without trying first. With experience and years of attempting builds confidence with the spice rack.
My cooking tragedies
UM let's see not burning water really! and not setting the house on fire by leaving plastic utensils in frying pans with stove on. Ha. ha. This was of course years ago. Thank goodness.

Three Cheese Baked Pasta
I love this recipe i made many changes thought bc we are non red meat eaters and we use healthy products vs full fat bc of dietary issues in our household. I would highly recommend this great make ahead meal for those night when you cant all sit down together.

Eggnog Quick Bread
I only give a 3 stars because i made many changes to get the recipe taste like a quick bread super moist and made my home smell wonderful. It does remind me alittle bit like a cornbread texture. I cut the sugar back and used health alternatives to the butter and oil suggestions. I will use this again it helped use up the gallon of my favorite dairy homemade egg nog.
