About this Cook
Well, I am 30 years old. Married with 2 kids. I feel there is a dying breed of "homemade" foods. My grandmother gave me a quote that I will never forget: "Grandma's place fresh pies to cool on the window sill and grandaughters place pies on the window sill to thaw." That has stuck with me everyday since she told me. I enjoy cooking. My dad used to be a cook and taught me a few things here and there. He taught me to enjoy it and take pride in it.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake rather then cook. But I do enjoy both. I have a sweet tooth so tend to bake the good stuff.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love to go to my grandmothers house for old-fashioned Italian dinners. We have family recipes we eat every holiday. I can't wait.
My cooking triumphs
A cake from scratch in high altitude!
My cooking tragedies
Burning a roast on the Set-It-and-Forget-It rotisserie. Guess you really can't forget it.

Sweet Potato Cookies II
I made this recipe for my cooking club as the theme was Cookies and I wanted something semi-healthy. I made with all organic ingredients, replaced all purpose flour with all whole wheat flour, added a little more honey, added cinnamon, used vegan butter in place of regular butter, added 1/2c to 3/4 c zucchini and 1/2 bag of chocolate chips. I baked on stoneware so it took about 15mins. They were a little cakey but they were a hit!!

To Die For Blueberry Muffins
LOVE IT! My son (3yr) doesn't like blueberries and refuses to eat them if in his pancakes...but LOVES these muffins! I make this recipe about once a month. They freeze very well. I add lots and lots of blueberries and they turn out great everytime. Great recipe! Thank you for sharing.

Green Bean Casserole II
I don't care for anything canned so this was perfect for my family. My husband made this and turned out better then what I could have done.
