About this Cook
I am married (10 years) to a man who is now a professor of accounting at a university and we have four boys, ages 9, 6, 4 & 10 months. I am a homemaker and keep very busy with all these boys! I love to bake and cook. I have recently lost 33 pounds (have 27 more to go!) doing the Biggest Loser Online and am enjoying it. I like finding recipes that sound good and making them more healthy or low-fat.
My favorite things to cook
lasagna, Italian food, baking is my true love, anything and everything.

Best Lemonade Ever
Just helped my 7 year old make this this morning for a family get together. He put a sign out that said Free Lemonade Samples with small cups. Everyone liked it so much that he made almost $8. He never even asked for money, they liked it so well they got out money and were paying him. And it sure made him feel good! ;) Easy trick, to cool the simple syrup, we put the bowl of syrup in a bigger bowl of ice water. It was nice an cold in no time at all, like 10-15 minutes!

RITZ New York-Style Mini Crumb Cheesecakes
I haven't tried these yet, but in a family with cheesecake lovers, I know they would be a big hit!

Pumpkin Fluff Dip
This is really good, but WAY too much whipped topping. I only used an 8 oz. container and it was plenty!
