About this Cook
I enjoy baking and cooking.. Baking is a passion of mine.. Sharing the yumminess of homemade baked goods is priceless. Maybe, one day I will open a homemade sweets shop or something. I love all of our pets.. We have six, 3 dogs and 3 cats! It's like a mini petting zoo!! Most of all, I love my Husband! We now have a handsome son!
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake any kind of desserts! I have a huge sweet tooth! So, I love to try new recipes and taste them, too!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I don't really think we have any... When my husband and I decide to have kids, I will make some cooking tradions of our own.. I can't wait! Our son, is usually in his highchair eating a snack when I am cooking or baking. I can't wait to have him help me cook and bake! It will be messy but fun!!
My cooking triumphs
Making a christmas dinner in 2007, for my family and friends. That was fun and scary.. It turned out to be a great dinner and everyone enjoyed it!
My cooking tragedies
When I was 13 years old, I tried to make lemon squares and messed up on one of the ingredients and they came out greenish instead of yellow... LOL! Not sure, but I think I mixed up the baking soda or baking powder. Anyway, my Aunt couldn't stop laughing at what I made.. It was a disaster.. But, a funny memory!

Janet's Rich Banana Bread
I used 1/4 cup of melted butter and 1/4 cup applesauce. Reduced sugar to 3/4 cup, used buttermilk in place of sour cream(didn't have any). Mashed the bananas and added 1 tsp of cinnamon. Came out very moist and delicious.

Eggless Eggnog
I love store bought eggnog. I tried homemade eggnog and feel it's too egg-y. Came across a similar recipe, like this on Pinterest. I used white chocolate pudding mix, with 4 cups 1/2% milk and 2 cups 2%. Didn't use rum extract. Added 1/3 cup sugar and a few sprinkles of nutmeg and cinnamon. Came out good. Will make again.

Versatile Chicken Salad
Versatile Chicken Salad

Pile it into a tomato half, load it into a wrap, or spread it on bread. Chicken salad does it all.

Broccoli salad makes a great side dish or a light main dish on a warm night.
