About this Cook
Just moved to Wisconsin in '08, I have always loved to cook and be creative in my cooking. I have a great husband and two wonderful sons who try all of my experiments. I earned my B.A. from the University of Montana in Missoula in Communication Studies but my first love is in the kitchen.
My favorite things to cook
I am interested in food tours throughout the U.S. and Canada. I love gravy-laced foods and southern-style cuisine but I want to try to master to local dishes and see what our new family favorites can be.
My favorite family cooking traditions
English muffin breads, most anything homemade is a plus! Since I work now and have two very active boys, I also give in to the quick fix foods but my heart belongs to homemade dinners all the way.
My cooking triumphs
Discovering I can bake desserts! I don't have much of a sweet tooth and my cookies and cake were turning out beautiful because I didn't touch them and was looking for a more visually pleasing finished product! Turned out if it looks good, eat it!
My cooking tragedies
When I was 14 I made spaghetti. I mixed the cooked noodles into the sauce and turned the heat on the skillet up too high - burned the whole dish! The housed smelled bad, but we still tried to eat it.

Sweet Potato Bake
Made this tonight, I had to omit the topping due to someone's mouth sensitivity. I added 2/3 cup of light brown sugar to the sweet potato mixture and baked for 35 minutes at 400. It turned out great!

Fast and Easy Turkey Pot Pie
After 40mins @350 the pie crust is not even close to being done. Not sure what the problem is but this isn't working/cooking well.
