About this Cook
Married 20 years, mom of 3 teens-2 boys and a girl - 1 cat & 1 dog!
My favorite things to cook
I love to try any new recipe, but mostly new cookie or bread recipes
My favorite family cooking traditions
Corned beef and cabbage on St Patrick's day, trying to cook a pot roast as good as my mom's, roasting the perfect turkey for Thanksgiving, and my husband's favorite eclair cake any day
My cooking triumphs
My apple pie...it tastes's just like my Aunt Jessie's (who made the best apple pie ever)
My cooking tragedies
I can't make a decent meatloaf to save my life..but I keep trying! There's a few recipes on this site I need to try.

One Bowl Chocolate Cake III
I made this yesterday and it's reeaallllly good. Nice and moist, very chocolately. I used a basic buttercream frosting. My husband loved it and I'm actually eating a piece right now for breakfast. My Sunday morning treat. :)
