About this Cook
I have loved cooking since I first made scrambled eggs at age five. I currently stay at home with my three sons. I love to try new recipes, even though my husband thinks I have perfected quite a few. I love cook books.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook just about anything.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I grew up entering the State Fair. Baking was ingrained in me as well as cake decorating from my mom. I have two older boys that love to help me in the kitchen whenever they can.
My cooking triumphs
Finding the "Perfect" lemon merienge pie and fudge for my husband. If he says, "Don't change a thing!" I know it is a sucess!
My cooking tragedies
Burned rice, dry roast, overdone mashed potatoes...There is at least one disaster a month. If we did not have tragedies we could not have the successes!

Easy Chocolate Crackled Cookies
I made this with a triple chocolate cake mix with mini chocolate chips. I also let the dough sit in the fridge for 1 hour and also let the cookies rest on the pan for 5 minutes before removing. They were a hit with my children as well as nieces/nephews! (grown-ups too)

Quick and Easy Pizza Crust
I double the recipe when I make it and freeze half the dough for another day. I bake it without toppings on top of corn mealed stone for 10 minutes before adding the toppings and baking for another 10 minutes. From start to finish it takes about an hour. I also found I need to roll it really thin because it does rise a lot in the over. So a really thin crust does not come out thin but the normal thickness of pizza. I also found I needed to knead it for a little longer than suggested. Not much longer, but until the dough was smooth in texture.

Honey Glazed Ham
After making ham with this glaze I was told by my husband to not "ever try another recipe again". I use the dark corn syrup and honey with butter and every 15 minutes I added a little more glaze to the ham. Because I always get the spiral sliced ham, I put wooden skewers in the ham to keep it from falling. I have used ground cloves as well as whole cloves and did not notice a difference between the two. I have had hams up to 12 pounds and just used one recipe on it. WONDERFUL!!!
