About this Cook
I have loved cooking and baking since I was little. My mom taught me how to cook when young. I have four kids. Ages ranging from 16 to 11. And they each have their own specific day each week where they get to help me in the kitchen to make dinner. They LOVE that one on one with me. And I enjoy sharing my love of cooking with them.
My favorite things to cook
Cookies
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every Christmas our family makes a bunch of goodies to give to our neighbors.
My cooking tragedies
When I burned my lips with a 350 degree butter knife.... Long story... ;)

Banana Cake VI
If I could give more stars, I would. Oft times I will make adjustments to some recipes I see on here, but I thought I would try this EXACTLY as the submitter said. I am glad I did! I did have to bake a little longer than an hour, but that may have something to do with my oven. All I can say is, "WOW!" This cake is the BEST banana cake I have ever had, hands down! I am a chocoholic and this cake is so good, I don't miss not having any chocolate! I prefer this cake over the chocolate ones I make. Now THAT is saying something!! I have made this SEVERAL times so far, and I still follow the recipe exactly as written. Every place I take this, I get an outpouring of people raving about this cake. For fun, this last time, I sprinkled some walnuts on top of half of the cake because my husband LOVES walnuts and it just enhanced the flavor even more. I simply cannot say enough good things about this recipe. I am glad I followed the recipe exactly because I feel it needs no alterations. I also love how I can use up all the frozen bananas I have floating around in my freezer. I usually plop an overly ripe banana in the freezer for future banana breads. Now they are all ear marked for this cake. Try this recipe and you will not regret it!

Pumpkin Spice Cookie
I think these were very delicious! I added some chocolate chips and used a cookie scoop and put them on parchment paper lined cookie sheets. They turned out very moist.

Easy Never Forgotten Guacamole
Yum Yum Yum!! I made this last night for a party and it was a hit! I do have to admit I used this recipe as a base and added things to it. I added fresh diced onions, fresh chopped tomatoes, diced green chilis, splash of lemon juice, and a dash of cayenne pepper. PLUS if you keep a couple of the seeds/pits them just throw them in with the guacamole and it helps (in conjunction with the lemon juice) keep the guacamole from turning that nasty brown color.
