Me and my wonderful husband
About this Cook
I am a mother of 2 young children. Cole is 8 and Emma is 5. Have been married for 7 years. Try my best to cook healthy and delicious meals for my family!
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake desserts that the kids love to eat and help with. I like trying new interesting recipes that are quick to make!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family has always made huge Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners. We make the traditional turkey with all the fixings. It sounds so plain but it's tradition and I love it!
My cooking triumphs
I am great at adding spices to sauces and certain recipes to help add that extra ump to the meal!
My cooking tragedies
Decorating desserts has always been hard for me to do. They always taste great but can look a little shaky :)

4H Banana Bread
This is the best banana bread recipe I have ever tasted! It's so dense and moist. Pop a little butter on this bad boy and you have the perfect desert with coffee :) I had to bake about an hour and 5 minutes or so. The top never seems to want to finish in 50 minutes (typical for banana bread time). I also did 1/2 cup white sugar and 1/2 cup brown sugar and threw in some cinnamon and sugar on top. TRY THIS! YOU WILL NEVER REGRET IT :)

Extreme Chocolate Cake
This cake is awesome!!! The only problem I had was the layers baking uneven so my cake look a little funny. But as long as it tastes good, that's all that matters, I am no professional cake decorator :) The frosting was even better. I had to add a little more sugar than what was called for to thicken it up a bit. I will continue to use this great recipe!!!
