For those of you who so kindly have weighed in on "I have a question", please do NOT make the recipe I posted on there as being great and wonderful! I said I tweaked it a bit and added some EggBeaters. Well, I know what EggBeaters is but I have never used it in cooking. I think I… MORE

Lemon CakeBall
About this Cook
My mother is an excellent cook so I began cooking at an early age. I have taught both of my children to cook as well. I'm married, have two almost grown kids and my husband and I own a business and work together.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake anything. I also enjoy cooking on the grill. In the summer it's too hot to turn on the oven. I make the entire meal on the grill.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Baking and making candy with my daughter during the holidays. We make pounds of candy and cookies and give it all away as gifts to neighbors and friends. *This tradition has turned into a new business! My daughter and I started making gourmet cakeballs in the fall of 2010.
My cooking triumphs
The first wedding cake I made at the age of 17.
My cooking tragedies
The time I was following a recipe for a hot soup. I put hot vegetables in the blender, put the top on it and turned it on. The recipe did NOT say to leave the lid off and cover with a towel. The hot vegetables hit me in the face and splattered all over the ceiling. Not pretty.

Blackberry Cobbler II
I made this cobbler and was following the recipe exactly. When I go to the point where you cook the berries, lemon juice, sugar, water and cornstarch in the skillet; the berries cooked down so much I added about 4 more cups of berries. It came out amazing!! We ate it hot with home made vanilla ice cream. YUM! The only thing I would do differently is make about 1 1/2 times the crust for the top. I almost didn't have enough to cover my cobbler and we all like a lot of crust!

Chicken Florentine Casserole
I read most of the reviews before I prepared this recipe. I agree, the chicken would be dry if baked. I pan seared thin chicken fillets in a small amount of butter in a pan. Romoved the chicken from the pan and sauted sliced portabello mushrooms and one pound of fresh baby spinach in the same pan. I followed the recipe directions for the white sauce exactly. I thought one tablespoon of Italian seasoning was overpowering. I will use about a tsp. next time. It also needed salt. This was a wonderful dish served over angel hair pasta.
