About this Cook
I just got married Dec. 29, 2007 to my highschool boyfriend. We were together 4 years before we got engaged and he entered the Army, then engaged for 3 1/2. We were not together much during the time we were engaged, so it is soo nice to have someone to test new recipies on.... though he is not at all picky:)
My favorite things to cook
I love learning new ways to cook! I also like finding new ways to make things more healthy AND more flavorful. I think cooking is the best way to relieve stress and boost your ego!!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love making slow cooked food. I dont have any training and do not use recipies. I like to watch food network and look at other recipies to get hints, then figure it out for myself!
My cooking triumphs
The best feeling for me is when I make my own recipe from the seat of my pants and it comes out awesome!! The best recipe i have is turkey veggie spaghetti. I challenge anyone to beat it!! Dont use the same recipe each time, but kinda wing it.... no restaurant will ever come close!!
My cooking tragedies
I made Thai yellow curry last week while my husband was on overnight duty. He wouldnt even try it cause he said it smelled bad... it was delicious to me:) I also have no idea how to fry things... it always turns out burned or greasy and smells up the house:) Oh well...

Dark Chocolate Cake I
I made this cake with 100% whole wheat, and applesauce in place of 1/2 of the butter, and it is incredibly moist and decadent! I can only imagine what the original recipe is like!

Ghirardelli Chocolate Raspberry Cheesecake Hearts
Ooooohhhhh EEEeeeemmmmmm GGGggggeeeee!!! this is ridiculously good!! I think people were confused... the recipe calls for 32 oz of cream cheese... as in 4x8 ounces... this is cheesecakey and chocolatey and fruity and amazing!! I made a half batch for just my husband and I, and the only problem is we are snacking on it for breakfast!
