Woo-hoo! Does the shimmy shimmy swerve and shake through the living room.  "I can bweef!!"  No more stuffy head.  No more ichy yucks and NO more Creepy Crud!  Yay me!   After a two week bout with gummed up breathing, hence the bweef, I am feelin' fine!  And… MORE

About this Cook
I am the ~MoM~ to 5 sons. Yes that's 5 and ALL boys ranging down from 22 to 8 years old...sighs. This means an awful LOT of feeding goin' on 'round here! I cook in super large quantities! So breaking it down takes me a LOT to get used to on those rare occasions that hubby and I are home alone :) We also have a LOT of pets and I often cook for them too. Treats only! or I would go insane! 1 hubby, 5 sons, 3 dogs, 4 cats and 2 guinea pigs? Trust me when I say there is never a dull moment 'round here and when received- silence is purely golden!
My favorite things to cook
Cake! Red Velvet with Cream cheese and White chocolate frosting, ~Cookies! Chewy Oatmeal, ~Potato salad, Beans ~n~ Rice Glop ( hehehe sometimes I let the boys name their favorite dishes) Joe's Surprise (Hubby's concoction but an Often requested main dish)
My favorite family cooking traditions
Getting together during the Yule holiday to bake cookies. This encompasses all of us in varying ages with cookies to make, bake and decorate by even the youngest! Maybe the grand babies are sitting with the grandparents and 'cooking' chocolate pretzels! While older ones are creating stained glass sugar 'puzzles' or the veterans of us are creating gingerbread cutouts to sugar glaze or hand 'paint' frost for snacking or covering the tree. Once all of the cooking and decorating is done every single one of us takes a plate home of every variety.
My cooking triumphs
Anytime I can cook something that is a hit with all the family and fills them all up? Is a triumph for me! :D
My cooking tragedies
My biggest tragedy was while learning how to cook. I didn't fully comprehend what the ingredient abbreviations meant...sighs....and when something called for t. salt I used T (tablespoons) instead! OMG! those were absolutely the saltiest cookies ever!

Soft Oatmeal Cookies
Okay as an always baking ~MoM~? These are by far the greatest cookies! I altered a few steps as I was pressed on time and patience...LOL I did NOT place the dough in the fridge at all and instead used 2 spoons to scoop and scrape amount of dough to cookie sheet. I then baked each sheet for 12 minutes. OMG! My daughter in law and I were horrid! We'd sneak a taste of the dough between bakings-you make sure the taste remained consistent! Yeah that's MY story and I'm sticking to it! I had to make these two nights in row! Doubling the batch the next day as the first batch barely made past morning and half my sons weren't even aware that any had been made! Yeah. They're that good! Only ingredient changes I would dream of making would be to maybe add some chopped pecans to the mix...hmmmmm...Oh! my daughter in law and I also thought what a great flavor this dough had precooked? We're gonna take some and freeze it till hard- chop into bits. Take some vanilla ice cream and thaw till just softened. Add the dough, mix and re-freeze! Yeah...mmmmmm...this dough is just THAT good! Also great with your favorite coffee to wash those cookie crumbs down! Hehehehe
