About this Cook
I'm a happy wife to a great husband and a mommy of 4 great kids. I spend a lot of time in the kitchen, and I like to try new recipes that will please my hungry families tummies! I hope that I can find some yummy recipes here to try out.
My favorite things to cook
Pastas, Stews, Casseroles, homemade bread and granola. Lots of other things!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Around the holidays my family loves to make cookies and candy together. The kids are always so excited to help, and it great to see how happy they are with their creations.
My cooking triumphs
I make pretty good homemade bread. I also recently finally learned to make good fried chicken, and it had been a challenge for me for a long time.
My cooking tragedies
One time a forgot to put sugar in a pumpkin pie I baked. My husband still hasn't let me live that down... Ha ha.

Amish White Bread
This is a really good, basic bread recipe. It works great for sandwiches, toast, or just to pass at the table with meals. I agree with other reviewers that it calls for too much sugar. I reduced the amount to 1/4 cup. Other than that I followed the recipe.

Chicken Breasts in Caper Cream Sauce
This is very flavorful and unique! My husband and I loved it, but my kids were picky about the capers. I would agree with some other reviewers that it needs no salt. The capers make it taste plenty salty enough.
