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)

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.

Wonderful Banana Cake
This cake turned out great! My family enjoyed it too. I added three bananas, 1 teaspoon of cinnamon, baked in a pre-heated oven at 350 and check it at 25 minutes. Frosted with a cream cheese pecan frosting as suggested in the reviews. Very yummy! Great way to use up very ripe bananas.
