About this Cook
When my husband and I got married I knew how to cook, but my skills were limited. When he was deployed for the first year of our marriage I created a Recipe Box of my own. I cooked and baked and took photos of all my creations and typed out recipes on the back of each picture with an index card. I didn't make as many recipes as I wanted, but it was a nice start. My husband was very happy to come home to a home-maker. :)
My favorite things to cook
I LOVE to bake - anything and everything Pumpkin!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mother is a wonderful cook and I owe my cooking to her. Funny, little things she told me to do while assisting her in the kitchen stick out the most to me.
My cooking triumphs
I try new recipes all the time to enhance my skills and abilities to progress as a cook.
My cooking tragedies
I put 1/4 cup of pepper in with meatballs rather than what the recipe called for, which was 1/4 tsp. of pepper - oops ;) They turned out quite spicy.

Death by Chocolate
I made this for Mother's Day for both my mother and my mother-in-law. I knew this would be the perfect dessert, because they are chocolate fanatics! They both said, Death by Chocolate was fantastic!

Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings
My husband and I made this recipe tonight and found it to be delicious! I only put 1 package of biscuits instead of two, because of what the other reviews had said. And I also put the biscuits in 1.5 hours prior to serving too. Definitely perfect for a snowy cold day, like today!
