About this Cook
My life is very full with a wonderful husband, our two young daughters, and graduate school! It's often challenging finding time to cook. I love Allrecipes for the wonderful assortment of fast and easy recipes as well as the reviewers comments that help me make a fantastic meal in no time!
My favorite things to cook
I'm probably best at breakfast foods and baking, but I enjoy trying new recipes of all types!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My great-grandmother was the cook of the county, hosting a HUGE community dinner once a year among other things. I learned a few skills from her and loved going to her house for tea with cookies.
My cooking tragedies
Oh heavens... more than I can post here! I figure that if we learn from our mistakes, I'm becoming well-educated. *Laugh!*

Butternut and Acorn Squash Soup
Lovely soup! The best part about this recipe is how easily it is adjusted to suit each family's tastes. I took the advice of another reviewer and waited until the end to add brown sugar, bit by bit until I reached the level of sweetness that was right for us. I also used 4 oz of Neufchatel cheese instead of 8 oz cream cheese and only about half a quart of chicken broth. Thank you for this excellent and versatile recipe!

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough + Cupcake = The BEST Cupcake. Ever.
I haven't made these yet, but plan to!! The reason I'm rating this recipe in advance is simply to share a no-egg cookie dough recipe for those who are worried about it. The recipe is Frozen Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Balls posted by KateLou26.
