About this Cook
At home mom of 2 darling girls. I love to cook, bake and eat!
My favorite things to cook
Almost anything baked with the exception of homemade pie crust and anything involving stiff peaks :oP
My favorite family cooking traditions
Making my mom's famous sugar cookies for Christmas. Each woman in my family has introduced her own cookie cutter shape and color to the tradition. Mine is a blue Christmas light bulb.
My cooking triumphs
I'm beginning to master the art of children's shaped birthday cakes and just generally becoming a better baker/cook all together.
My cooking tragedies
I still have to call my husband in to check the pasta. I always overcook it. I much prefer to bake!

Fluffy French Toast
This was a nice change from the traditional egg, milk, cinnamon combo I usually default to. There wasn't a drastic difference but it just tasted better overall. Against my better judgement I "saturated" the Texas Toast and to my surprise it cooked through just fine on my griddle and was not soggy or mushy at all in the middle - perfectly done! My little kids ate them up, too. I didn't change any ingredients and followed the recipe step by step. I think I cooked these on my griddle at about 350 degrees.

Simple Strawberry Syrup
EASY and AMAZING! The bonus is that the leftover pulp makes a great spread for toast and sandwiches, too. I made this exactly as stated but I think it took a little longer than 20 minutes to cook down. It was really great served warm on french toast and equally good the next day on leftovers. I've already added this to my real life recipe box as a keeper and will be making it next time we have guests over for breakfast or brunch.

Lip-smacking Popcorn Concoction
This stuff is GOOD! I made a half batch and used a few substitutes from what I had in the cupboards... 1/3c. popping corn kernels, popped, 2c. Kix, 1c. Life cereal, 1/2c. peanuts, crushed, 1c. pretzel twists, broken up, 1/2 lb vanilla almond bark. My preschooler was able to help me with all the dry ingredients, too. It has a light tasting popcorn ball flavor and a good salty/sweet balance (so my husband will love it!) It is still cooling but I just can't stop eating! The half batch was perfect for a family with two small kids. Will definitely be adding this to the recipe box!
