About this Cook
I currently live in Sidney, OH with my husband and two teenage sons. My passion is baking! When I was two years old, my grandmother purchased my first rolling pin and we made cutout cookies and cobblers together. This experience has instilled a life long love of baking within me. I love to share this art with others and thoroughly enjoy it when someone compliments my baked goods.
My favorite things to cook
My favorite things to make are desserts, cookies and candies. My specialities are pumpkin rolls, homemade caramels, fudge and frosted cutout cookies.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My job is always to supply the pumpkin roll, fudge, and caramels at our holiday gatherings. I usually like to surprise everyone with a new creation as well. My favorite tradition is Christmas Eve at my parents' home. Everyone brings lots of goodies and appetizers in lieu of a big meal. We simply munch all night long!
My cooking triumphs
I have won GRAND CHAMPION CAKE at our local fair on two different occasions. I have also been a runner up in our local newspaper contest numerous times.
My cooking tragedies
Fortunately, I haven't had many. My biggest mistake is often not checking to be sure I have all of the necessary ingredients for a dish and then in the middle of making it, discover that I need to run to the grocery store or call a friend quickly!

Blueberry Drop Cookies
These cookies were the bomb! I didn't have any lemons so I substituted 1/2 t. lemon extract for the lemon zest and only used 1/2 t. vanilla. I used my small Pampered Chef cookie scoop and each cookie turned out perfectly! They are a little crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside. My 15 year old son loved them! Thanks for a great, easy recipe!

Creme de Menthe Bars
This recipe is outstanding! I entered it in a newspaper contest and was chosen a semi-finalist. It is easy and delicious.
