About this Cook
I am a very dedicated wife and mother to the most wonderful people on earth! I have 2 girls, and one boy aging from 2 to 6. I love to cook, I love to see people eat my food, and I love to experiment with food.
My favorite things to cook
Birthday cakes (or any other celebration cake), Halloween cookies, Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner all together.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays more than any with the kids - they slow things down and make an enormous mess but I love it!
My cooking triumphs
With so much trial and error - too many to list. When you don't have any professional training or a family member who would share secrets and recipes, the smallest pot of soup is a triumph!
My cooking tragedies
Although it has been a while, and had been several years when I actually did this last one, it was the kind of bite you take, make a ugly face at the person who cooked it, shake vigorously, spit out and down a glass of milk while eating a thick slice of bread trying to get the taste out of your mouth! But in my defense, I was pregnant and as any woman knows, your brain is in prego function and doesn't operate correctly. It just had to be Christmas dinner - having a prego moment when I used apple cider VINEGAR instead of apple cider in my apricot glazed duck breast. To this day, I have not made that recipe again.

Marble Swirl Pound Cake
Like others, I reduced the flour to 3 cups and baked mine 50 minutes. I didn't bother measuring the batter I added the cocoa to. I just put a little less than half in a bowl, added the cocoa, poured about half the remaining yellow batter in the bottom of the tube pan, then the chocolate, then the rest of the yellow. Then took a case knife and made a bunch of circles for the swirl. This is the kind of cake that will go in one setting at my table - moist, tender, so delicious you are picking up the crumbs with your fork! Never had a better marble cake - thanks for the great recipe!

Catfish Tuscany
This is some awesome stuff! My whole family devoured it. I changed it slightly by marinating the fish in a zip lock bag with the lemon juice and S&P for about 10 minutes. Then broiled as normal but I did add garlic and crushed red pepper to the cheese mixture. The best baked fish recipe I have ever found. One thing that will make a really big difference is to only use Roma tomatoes and slice paper thin. I had 4 large pieces of fish and only used 1 Roma. This is key in keeping the fish nice and crispy instead of getting soggy. Thanks so much for sharing your wonderful recipe!
