About this Cook
I am a small town stay at home mother of two who loves to make my family happy with good food and tasty treats. I am the youngest of 11 kids and I make a lot of the same meals that my mother made when I was growing up, and her mother made them the same way when she was little.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake, especially cakes and cookies. I also love to try new things. I like making a good hot homemade meal on a cold winter day!
My favorite family cooking traditions
One of the first things that comes to mind when I think of holidays as a child is cooking and baking with my family. I especially remember spending a whole day making Christmas cookies with my 10 brothers and sisters as well as many nieces and nephews.
My cooking triumphs
Any time I make a meal or dessert that recieves compliments, I feel I have triumphed! When I look around the table and see my family enjoying what I made, it gives me pleasure.
My cooking tragedies
When I was first married, I made corned beef and cabbage for dinner. I didn't know that my husband hated cabbage until I saw him trying to eat it and almost gagging in the process! Needless to say, I haven't made it since!

Best Ever Jalapeno Poppers
I don't eat hot peppers but hubby and daughter said FIVE STARS for sure!! Hubby said could have been a little hotter so next time will use pepper jack cheese to spice it up a little more. Other than that...perfect!

Pumpkin Crumb Cake
This cake was way to rich for my families tastes. Even a little slice made us kind of sick in the stomach. It had a good flavor other than that but I won't be making it again...
