About this Cook
I am wife, mother of 2 teenage boys (and that means cooking plenty!), and a RN. I am passionate about being creative in everyday life. I am entranced with cross stitching and finding ways to be more self sufficient.
My favorite things to cook
How can you have a favorite when there are so many delightful things to cook?! I really enjoy simple, flavorful recipes that have no or minimal processed foods in them.
My favorite family cooking traditions
That has to be Thanksgiving dinner. We always debate over it even though we know it will always be the same.
My cooking triumphs
Cooking a turkey that is so moist and still perfectly browned that it makes my husband ask every time "Are you sure it's done". "Yes dear, you ask this every time I cook it".
My cooking tragedies
Thinking I had the greatest idea for squash (which all of us hate) then when it was cooked discovering that we still hated it. Buying fish that I was assured by was delicious and it turned out to be hideous and felt like rubber when it was cooked.

Shredded Chicken Tacos
I made this for a "whatever" night for myself. My husband, who doesn't normally like this type of dish, ended up stealing some of it. I did have to make an alteration because I bought the wrong thing. I didn't think the tomato puree I did buy would taste right so I used the Rotelle I did have. I was told to add this to our rotation and to try it with beef. Love this recipe.

Chocolate Pound Cake III
Ok, this was a delicious recipe but I was concerned when I read others comments. When I looked over the ingredients I realized that the baking soda was off if you are not using buttermilk because buttermilk has a rising property when used with baking soda. So I increased baking soda to 1 tsp and took salt to 1/4 tsp, which is what my lemon poppyseed pound cake uses. Baked for 55 min. at 350 and the cakes still fell in the middle even though they were done. I think I will use more flour next time, as other recipes with this much wet ingredients uses 3 cups and update. Tasted wonderful and was not dense and I will make again.

Fruit Pizza II
I have been using an almost identical recipe for about 2 years. There is a difference in the filling that I have to share. It was whipping lemon or lime curd (was told it is a British item similiar to jelly, not sure about that) with the cream cheese and leaving out the whipped topping. This gave the filling a smoother, tart flavor and the pizza even better flavor than it already has. I added approx 6 ounces, as my family likes slightly tart treats. Raspberries and blackberries also are a wonderful flavor addition.
