About this Cook
I have been married since 2000. I have 2 daughters, aged 4 and 6.5mths. I am a recent Stay at home mom, who is learning to cook things that take more than a couple of minutes to put together.
My favorite things to cook
Chinese food. I have found a new love for cooking that. I recently got a Wok, and can't put it down.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I don't really have any family cooking traditions; however, am now creating some with my 4 year old.
My cooking triumphs
I made brownies from scratch. Having always bought the box mix, I checked one of the recipes here, and found that I had all the ingredients. I made them, and they were AWESOME!
My cooking tragedies
Sauces! I am horrible, absolutely HORRIBLE at making sauces.

Mom's Zucchini Bread
I have never made nor have eaten zucchini bread before, but had a lot of fresh zucchini in my garden to find a use for. I followed this recipe verbatim (with the exception of makin a strusel topping one of the raters suggested) and I must say, this bread was delicious! I doubled the recipeand made 4 loaves, and gave them to family and friends, who all agreed that it was really good, and moist! The strusel gave it that extra bite of cinnamon and crunch from the walnuts (but it did not influence my rating) Also a little side note, while I appreciate those who alter the recipe to their specifications, I believe its only fair to follow the recipe as it is written and base your rating off of that. If you rate based upon your alterations, then its not a fair rating to the recipe as it was written.

Strawberry Jam
This is my 1st time making a jam that required canning (made freezer jam once). I love this recipe, its tasty, spreadable and easy! I dbld the recipe (sort of) I used 5lbs of strawberries (girls and I went picking) and 8 cups of sugar, and 1/2 cup lemon juice (half fresh half concentrate). I brought it to a boil ver slowly on low, and once it started boilling increased the temp to med and continued to let it boil (stirring occassionally) until it reached a temp of 220 (used an electric thermometer) and the plate method. My recipe made 4.5pints. Caution to those that want to rush this method, DON'T DO IT! Letting it gradually come to temp gave it this deep maroon color, and the strawberries broke down beautifully! I will def be making this again, and giving them as gifts!!!

Corn Dogs
I have never made corn dogs before, and this recipe was so easy and utilized everything that I had on hand. Took other reviewers advice and dried the hot dogs well before dipping in the batter that I refrigerated for 30 min. My husband, who was skeptical when he saw that I was making them said that they are better than the ones at the fair!
