About this Cook
I'm a registered nurse and married mom of 3 adopted kids and a baby boy who is up in heaven.
My favorite things to cook
I love to discover new recipes and find new favorites. I especially like healthy dishes that taste as good as the fattening ones.

Mom's Buttermilk Pancakes
These were awesome! Definitely going to make these again. I doubled the recipe, as I was serving breakfast to four 11 year old boys (birthday party sleepover). I was hoping that doubling the recipe (to get 8 servings) would feed four kids plus two adults and two teenagers, but it wasn't near enough. It pretty much only fed the four kids and 1 other person. So if I'm in a similar situation again, I would triple or quadruple the recipe.

Uncle White's Bread Machine Rolls
These were awesome! Next time I think I'll double the recipe, as they disappeared so fast. First time I made these, I made them exactly as stated in the recipe. Second time I experimented and used the whole egg instead if just the yolk. I also put the oil in when I put the rest of the ingredients in - I didn't pause it to add it later. Still turned out great, no noticeable difference.

Creamy Cheesecake
I made this for dessert on Christmas Eve, it was amazing - rave reviews from everyone. Thanks for sharing it, Karin! For the crust, I used 1 1/4 c. graham crumbs, 1/4 c. butter, 1 tbsp. white sugar about 1/4 c. crushed pecans, and a sprinkle of cinnamon. Baked at 350 for ten minutes, then allowed to cool before putting the cheesecake mixture in. Turned out delicious, I just wished I had a bit more time to let it cool in the oven (with the oven off) to prevent cracking....but there were pies waiting in line for the oven, so them's the breaks!
