The Reason I Love to Cook
About this Cook
I love to cook, especially for my family.
My favorite things to cook
Anything the whole family will eat!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I come from a family of amazing cooks and bakers, all in different areas. I go to my dad for the grilling and meat advice, my mom for sweets, my grandma for anything, and my older brother is a gourmet chef so he helps alot too! My aunt gives me great soups and the list could go on!!

Stuffed Green Peppers I
The whole family loved it, even my pickiest boy. I used diced tomatoes with green chiles instead of whole, and a large can of tomato sauce instead of soup. I added garlic and cumin to the tomato sauce. I followed others advice and used beef broth instead of water and added extra worcestershire and garlic. I could have just eaten the filling on its own! Great texture and lots of flavor.

Joey's Peanut Butter Cookies
not worth all the extra effort to get the dough to work right, I'll stick with my usual pb cookie recipe

Pumpkin Cake III
fantastic! Very moist and flavorful. I used 1/2 cup applesauce and 3/4 oil and substituted pumpkin pie mix for the canned pumpkin. It was perfect, baked in a bundt pan for 45 min and topped with warm cream cheese frosting. I will definitely make again. Even my picky boys loved it!
