About this Cook
mom of three (two at home), love to cook and experiment with different recipes. Nothing more satifying that cooking for family and friends!
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake cookies and cakes. I like to experiment with casseroles and slow cooker meals especially since we are a busy family (hockey, horseback riding lessons, etc.) Recently began taking cake decorating classes and am selling a few every so often..a new love!!
My favorite family cooking traditions
It's always been a tradition to make the mashed potatoes with cream cheese and sour cream and green bean casserole for holiday dinners.
My cooking triumphs
My first attempt at cheesecake was a raving success!!! "Mastering" the art of cake decorating is also a triumph of mine, since I never thought I'd be able to do it!
My cooking tragedies
I forgot to put the turkey in the oven one Thanksgiving...the company noticed when they walked in the door and didn't smell it! lol Dinner was late that year, but it was all good!

Tina's Shortbread Chocolate Chip Cookies
These are phenomenal! I always make plain shortbread with coloured sugar on them for Christmas, but decided I'd add to my baking list and try these. Excellent! Wonderful texture! Simple to make. Definitely making these again! Thank you tinafox!

Quick and Almost-Professional Buttercream Icing
Not sure if it was me or the recipe, I'm assuming I did something wrong. I made it according to the recipe instructions and put it in a piping bag. First 1/4 cup or so came out so running, I couldn't even make a shell border. Then I couldn't squeeze hard enough to get the "hard" icing out. I'm talking stiff as a board! I also found it rather gritty and VERY sweet. I will stick to my regular buttercream recipe next time. The only reason I used this one, is because I didn't make enough of my own and didn't have more high-ratio shortening to make more. I won't use this one again. Sorry.

Cheese Sauce for Broccoli and Cauliflower
Very easy and quick to make and even though I'm one of the lucky moms who's kids WILL eat their broccoli without a cheese sauce, I tend to not like it too much, so it helps me! LOL I made this once with old cheddar and it was MUCH better than with medium, so if you're going to make it stick to old or extra old cheddar. Thanks for this recipe! I'm sure I'll use it often :)
