About this Cook
I'm a new mom to a little boy named Creighton. My husband and I are just figuring out that eating meals as a couple, may have been a thing of the past. Cooking for my family is my utmost concern right now. My mother has always been an excellent cook and teacher. My siblings and I have been spoiled with her cooking both every day and during holidays. Now that we are on our own, we do our best to duplicate my mother's skill and love of cooking. We've got years of practice to go, but we are coming along steadily.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook chicken and soups. Chicken is just so simple and you can make it really dolled-up or just keep it low-key. I love cooking with all fresh ingredients rather than using canned or dried. The smell is so much brighter when your ingredients are fresh.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Holidays really begin with the food in our family. Around Thanksgiving, we make rolls using a recipe from our mother's parents. The recipe usually takes the whole day to make, but then we just freeze the rolls until Christmas. Each of the major food holidays, we will divide up all the items to be made, so that everyone has a chance to make something.

Zucchini Brownies
I was very disappointed with this recipe. I followed the instructions to the letter and my brownies were still undercooked in the middle and hard around the edges. The brownies never poofed, they were still very condensed. The zucchini wasn't hidden at all, it was very obvious that there was zucchini in the brownies.
