About this Cook
I work overnights, so I go home in the morning, sleep, and wake up when my daughter arrives home from school. We generally cook dinner together, spend the evening with her and the DH, tuck her in, then head off to work.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake, desserts are my specialty. Cookies, cakes, candies, I excel at them all.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I grew up cooking with my mother and baking with my grandmother. So now that I have a daughter of my own, she cooks and bakes with me. She is 8 now and has started to cook some items herself.
My cooking triumphs
Made over 1000 cookies at Christmas time.
My cooking tragedies
My last cheesecake, a chocolate marble, was a bit soft in the middle.

French Peach Pie
My daughter, the pie maker,who is now 9, made this for the annual pie contest last summer. It took second place. We added some fresh whipped cream around the outside, and a fresh blueberry in the middle (I uploaded the pic) and we took the time to arrange the peaches in a swirl pattern. And it tastes good, the filling is not too sweet or overpowering, to let the flavor of the peaches come through.

No Bake Lemonade Icebox Pie
My daughter was looking for a simple recipe to make for a pie contest (she was 6). She made this and it won first prize in the junior division. We decreased the lemonade mix by half (we used Country Time) and it was perfect!

Grandpa's Special Stuffing
Only after cooking this stuffing in the Thanksgiving turkey did my husband tell me he does not like stuffing cooked inside the bird. Regardless, this was very tasty. I am not a big fan of onions, and almost every stuffing recipe has onions in it, I was very glad to find this one.
