About this Cook
I grew up a Navy brat and am a Navy wife of 15+ years...I have lived overseas for over half my life so I have been exposed to many types of cuisine, including foreign local specialties. I have 2 boys, a 14 y/o & a 4 y/o. The older one is a picky eater who eats to survive and the youngest is a budding gastronomist and my own personal Sous Chef.
My favorite things to cook
Anything that has the wow factor when it hits your tongue.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Cooking together, any time.
My cooking triumphs
Anything that turns out exactly as it is supposed to is a triumph, lol.
My cooking tragedies
My first Turkey, over 15 years ago...I did the whole cliche "left the giblets in the bird" thing. I didn't realize there was a second cavity I had to check.

Vanilla Pumpkin Pie
LOVED this pie! It's perfect for people who love the taste of pumpkin but don't like pumpkin pie because of the overbearing spices. My 14 year old son HATED pumpkin pie until this year and I have converted him with this one! He has requested this pie for all holidays for the rest of his life! The only change I made to this recipe was to grate some fresh nutmeg into the mix.
