Sugar Cookie Christmas Tree
About this Cook
I am a wife and mother of three young boys. They keep me very busy so I don't get a chance to put as much as I would like into my cooking. My husband is great at giving me helpful feed back about my cooking, which helps me to grow as a cook.
My favorite things to cook
desserts and breakfasts
My favorite family cooking traditions
Home made stuffing and home made pies at Thanksgiving and Christmas cookie baking. I always have a hard time balancing trying a new recipe and sticking to tradition when I choose my cookie and pie recipes.
My cooking triumphs
Too many!
My cooking tragedies
I used unsweetened chocolate instead of semi sweet chocolate. Not a good idea.

Smooth Buttercream Frosting
Used this recipe for my sons birthday cake. Love it. Not a big fan of buttercream, but this one is nice and smooth and not too sweet. Very good. Will use this recipe many many more times.

Tahini Cookies
Pretty good for a healthier snack. I didn't have any nuts to put in. The only honey I had was creamed honey with cranberries. I think this added a nice flavor to the cookie. Thick batter but tasty results.

Kielbasa Stew
Very Yummy! I left out the sour cream because I didn't have any. It would be a nice addition though. I had a can of beef gravy on hand, so I used that instead of the beef broth. I also used a can of crushed tomatoes instead of the tomato soup. This recipe is definitely a keeper.
