About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
I love the holidays! I really get into baking and cookie making. I also recently lost 50 lbs, so I am always trying to cook healthy. We love soup so I experiment with different ingredients to make hearty soups. I also enjoy making muffins and cupcakes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My favorite thing to do at Christmas time is make spritz cookies. This has been a tradition at our house since my son was small. He is now 28!
My cooking triumphs
We are a cooking family! My husband loves to bar-b-que. So when ever I try to cook on the grill it is a triumph if it is edible.
My cooking tragedies
In 32 years of cooking, there are too many to write about.......... the time I made rolls and killed the yeast.... or the time left a glass baking dish of lasagne on top of the stove and turned on the burner, or the time..........

Slow Cooker Tamale Pie
My husband loved it! I used turkey instead of ground beef, and I added a can of tomatoes with chili seasoning. I was surprised how much the corn bread mix tasted like tamales. This recipe will be one of my regulars.

Banana Banana Bread
I had four bananas that were getting ready to expire, and decided to try this recipe. I read the reviews and they were all great. My usual recipe includes vanilla and sugar as well as brown sugar. After reading the reviews, I had to embellish the recipe a bit. I added 1/3 tsp of cinnamon, 1/4 teaspoon of allspice, and 1/4 c. of ground Fiber One cereal. My eggs were jumbo eggs. I divided my batter into 2 smaller loaf pans. I sugared the sides of the loaf pan to give a sugary crust. My cooking time decreased to about 40 minutes. My husband is my cooking critic. He likes the new recipe but still prefers my traditional recipe. I think the difference revolves around the vanilla. We are so use to the vanilla flavoring it is hard for us to enjoy without it. This recipe makes a beautiful loaf, and is very moist.
