About this Cook
I am a stay at home mom of three wonderful children - ages 2 1/2, 10 and 16 - and I have one on the way due 10/6/2012! I have a husband who loves to eat whatever I cook - so he is my guinea pig. All Recipes is my favorite site - I love finding and cooking new recipes. My recipe box is out of control!
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake. So cookies, cakes and pies. Those are probably my favorite things to eat too. And I love to make soups in the winter.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Cookies, cookies and more cookies at Christmas!
My cooking triumphs
This past Easter I put together a menu and prepared everything on it for 7 adults........garlic cheese grits, fresh green beans and bacon, cranberry spinach salad, rolls, caramel crunch apple pie and a peanut butter ice cream pie. (okay I ordered the ham) This was a first for me and I was a nervous wreck. To my surprise and relief, everything turned out great and was ready at the same time and warm even. ;-)
My cooking tragedies
Nothing too horrible - I was making glazed pecans and I added 1 tbsp. of salt instead of 1 tsp. to the "glaze" mixture - needless to say those got thrown away!

Red Velvet Cake
I think I might have messed up with this cake. It was dry. I followed all of the directions and some of the reviewers suggestions trying to do everything correctly, but failed to check my cake for doneness before the 30 minutes. I took the cake out at exactly 30 minutes (was so scared that if I checked and it wasn't done - my checking would result in a fallen cake as I read about somewhere else)! Anyway, my cake was dry. :-( The flavor was good and the icing was great (had to mix 15 minutes as others stated). I think I might try again, only next time I will 1) spoon my flour into measuring cup rather than scooping as not to get too much 2) will bake 20 - 25 minutes as I think 30 was too long.

Baked Chicken Wings
First time making chicken wings and these were really good! I did cut off the little wing from my chicken wings. Anyway, made exactly as stated. Will make again now that I know how easy these are to make. I marinated in a big Ziploc bag for about 4 - 5 hours.

Run For The Roses Pie III
Liked this, didn't LOVE it. Super easy though! Wish I had had this warm from the oven, might have loved it more, but made ahead of time due to needing the oven for other things. Anyway, put homemade vanilla ice cream on this. Of course, it was yummy, just didn't blow me away enough to want to make again. :-( Made exactly as stated, by the way.
