If you can't tell by my profile name I am a military spouse. As a military spouse we often are asked to bring something to potlucks, bake something for a bake sale or make a dinner for a family in need. Sometimes, well more than sometimes we are told by our spouses at the last minute "hey we… MORE

About this Cook
Hello All:) I am a Army wife, mom to 4, volunteer and jack of all trades. Well maybe not all but I try. I love to cook and bake and take pictures of what I make. It all helps me de-stress. I am a foodie and love food and trying out new things.
My favorite things to cook
Do I have to pick one thing as my favorite? It really depends on my mood some days it is cooking up a scrumptious dinner while the next it is baking cupcakes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
From big breakfasts on the weekends to holiday meals food is a big part of so many things in my families life. It brings us together. We work together creating meals just as we sit together when we eat.
My cooking triumphs
Nothing feels better than cooking a new recipe that turns out perfect and that my entire family loves. The harder the recipe the better it feels. I can also make some awesome cupcakes and other baked goods. I was the cupcake lady at my kid's school and make cupcakes that the kids actually eat.
My cooking tragedies
Just keep me away from box mac n cheese or ramen noodles. It isn't a pretty sight.

Johnsonville Sausage Balls
This is a very easy and versatile recipe. My kid's are weird about onions and mushrooms so I used chiffoned spinach instead. I also use GF bisquick with no problems. These turned out great and disappeared fast!

Best-Ever Pumpkin Cupcakes
If you are looking for a pumpkin CAKE this is NOT it. I made the recipe as written and hoped for the best. I thought there may have been an error with the recipe. When my husband bit into his he immediately said, these cupcakes aren't done... but they were done. This is a pumpkin pie like "cupcake" that is seen all over pinterest during the fall months. It is good but it is not cake like and there is nothing noting that this is not your typical pumpkin cake. The flavors of pumpkin pie are all there.

Banana Nut Bread by PAM(R)
If you are looking for a banana bread that isn't too sweet this is the recipe for you. Many breads are simply too sweet but this one has a good ratio of sweet to balance with the banana. I did make the recipe with gluten free all purpose flour, xantham gum, a full teaspoon of cinnamon and 2 eggs instead of egg beaters.
