About this Cook
I'm a single mom,divorced for quite a few years.I'm trying really hard to keep good for you food in my 13 year old.Thankfully,I fed her a lot of vegetables when she was younger and she doesn't hate them because of early introduction.
My favorite things to cook
I really enjoy baking.The problem these days,though,is that everyone is watching what they eat.I really don't know how to bake low-fat.I don't want to substitute the taste out of my cakes and cookies,etc. I used to make specialty cakes for my kids' birthday parties.A school bus,a stained glass butterfly,(all 3D of course.not just pics on a flat cake. booring.)
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom's spaghetti sauce recipe will always be the family favorite.That along with dad's garlic bread....Nothing like it.I'm so glad they left those recipies with us.This way, we'll always have something of them with us.we sisters will pass these recipies down to our children,who are already clamoring for them.
My cooking triumphs
My cakes.
My cooking tragedies
The first time I tried to roast a turkey.I didn't know the gasket didn't fit properly on the oven door,I started the turkey at 6am.We ate all but the turkey around 4pm.The turkey was finally done at 10pm.what did I know about a gasket? lol

Grandpop's Special Chocolate Cake
I baked this cake with the recommended frosting. The frosting leave much to be desired, as does the cake itself. I will be deleting both from my recipe box immediately. What a disappointment. I spent all afternoon on this cake and my daughters were looking forward to yet another one of my fabulous creations, only to be upset and disappointed.
