About this Cook
Fun loving, married with 3 kids, 2 standard poodles. Sell real estate and am involved with my kids schools. I'm a life-long learner.
My favorite things to cook
Like to reproduce dishes I have in restaurants. Like to cook from scratch most of the time. Don't recognize powdered cheese or Velveeta as real cheese.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Crepes, salmon souffle, homemade mac & Cheese.
My cooking triumphs
Salmon souffle, crepes, chocolate frosting-this has been a challenge for me. I've given up on pie crust too-I have my husband make that.
My cooking tragedies
Pie crust, Mother-in-law's chocolate frosting (I refuse to try that recipe any longer)

Cheddar Onion Drop Biscuits
These turned out really well. We added 1/3 cup extra of buttermilk and 2/14 cups of sharp cheddar as we like cheddar versus Parmesan. Brushed them with garlic butter. Next time, I'll add a teaspoon of garlic. Will likely be a 5 star rating then. Will definitely make these again.

Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings
Very easy to make with a great flavor. My whole family liked it. Next time I make it, I'll add carrots and peas. This recipe is definitely a keeper!

Lori's Famous Crab Cakes
Very good. I added garlic in addition to the other spices. I pan fried them but think I'll try baking them at some point. The whole family enjoyed them.
