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.

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.

Frozen Strawberry Smoothie Bars
This were a hit but I made some minor alterations to the recipe.I omitted the apple juice because I forgot to pick up some but these did not need it. I also used vanilla greek yogurt because that is what I had on hand. I ended up with 3 popsicles. My younger 2 really liked them and so did I.

Fresh Blueberry Cake
My husband isn't a huge blueberry fan and loved this cake. I made it as written but added about a tsp. of vanilla out of habit. I also made this gluten free with gluten free AP flour and xantham gum.

Milly's Oatmeal Brownies
I made these gluten free with gluten free AP flour in place of regular AP flour and the addition of 1/2tsp of xantham gum. I halved the recipe but I shouldn't have because my kids devoured these when I turned around to take a picture. I did not add anything in and don't plan to in the future. They were perfect as is.
