About this Cook
Hiya folks! My name is Katrina and I am married to my awesome hubby of almost 5 years named Phillip. We have a gaggle of kitties whom we both love very much. We love hanging out together watching movies and of course eating great food. Phillip always uses the line " but it tastes better when you cook it" so I always do... :)
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake! I have been the designated baker for my family since I was 10 years old. Some people say cooking is an art and baking is a science... But I believe its a combination of both.
My favorite family cooking traditions
During the summers and holidays all of the women in my family gather together at my parents house and throw down! We can always guarantee full bellies and happy people and of course deliciously exhausted cooks and bakers!
My cooking triumphs
This past Thanksgiving I managed to make a double recipe of peach cobbler, Irish Cream fudge, 3 loaves of pumpkin spice bread, 2 sweet potato pies, sugar pecans, and sugar cookies! Man was I tired!
My cooking tragedies
The only thing I have ever made and totally screwed up was the the mushroom tortellini. I botched it by adding too much white wine! Eh gad it was horrid!

Cherry Cheesecake Frozen Yogurt
This tastes soooooo goood!!!! I personally am doing HCG and modified this recipe to be Phase 3 compliant by using 2/3 cup Madhava's Vanilla agave nectar in place of the white sugar. Instead of using cherries I pureed some defrosted frozen peaches and added the mix to the yogurt. Honestly, the flavors were so good it was not even needed. I also added a cap full of vanilla extract for good measure. I will definitely be making this again! Thank you so much to the original poster!

Quick and Easy Alfredo Sauce
Thank you Dawn for this simple and tasty recipe. By itself with no changes made I give this recipe a solid 4 out of 5. With these easy changes I give it a 5+++! First and foremost do NOT use a wire whisk in your non-stick cookware. Generally this will chip the coating and can then turn your pot into a health hazard. I always use a metal pan on low heat and never have any issues with scorching. I add a handful of fresh minced Italian parsley, minced garlic and basil. I add this to my butter and saute it a bit then add the cream cheese and between 7-8 ounces of Parmesan Romano Cheese and if possible use half cream and half milk. It makes a lot and tastes even better the second day :)
