Married with a 16 yr old daughter, who loves to help me cook and is most of the time my shadow. My husband and myself both work in an Emergency room so time for cooking does come few and far between.

Italian, Mexican, and attempting to Bake
My favorite family cooking traditions
--Not to burn the wooden spoons-- lol
My cooking triumphs
First time I made a roast that wasn't dry..
My cooking tragedies
I was 17 and I tried to make tuna fish casserole that the cat wouldn't even eat.

Classic Peanut Butter Cookies
I tweeked this to be a "healthier" PB cookie. I did add a 1/2 tsp of vanilla. I substituted white sugar with Splenda and regular brown sugar with Splenda brown sugar, natural PB, Whole wheat flour and no salt and I have to admit they are very addictive! Husband and daughter are begging to make more.

Sugar Free Cake
This is a GREAT RECIPE - Some tweaks that I made were: Instead of 2 Cups of raisins I used 1 cup and 1 cup of dried cranberries. I used 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract and heaping 1 1/2 tsp of cinnamon and heaping 1/2 nutmeg and I used 1 Cup of pecans ALSO I used the sugar free icing also on this site (used sugar free french vanilla pudding flavor) and this was AMAZING! Husband and teenage daughter couldn't wait till after dinner to eat this and I had to limit them to 1-piece a night!! HIGHLY recommended!!
