About this Cook
I've been married for 35 years and have 3 children and 4 grandchildren. After losing 134 pounds in the past year, I am now a certified health coach helping others lose weight and get healthy. I am active in my church.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook when I have time to fuss. Trying new recipes is fun for me, and I've gotten some wonderful ones from! I love to cook (and eat) Italian food, and I love good chocolate desserts.

Rick's Special Buttercream Frosting
This is an excellent butter cream recipe. I didn't give it a "5" because, like many other here, I made the recipe with half butter and half shortening and I didn't think it was fair to give it a "5" when I didn't make it exactly as written. Using half butter and half shortening, however, makes this a "5" star and it's been added to my recipe box.

Grandmother's Pound Cake II
I added 1-1/2 tsp. of pure vanilla extract to the recipe. The cake was delicious - wonderful texture and moist. I used this recipe to make an Easter lamb cake for our 9 grandchildren and the recipe was enough to fill the lamb mold plus a loaf pan.

Orange Soy Pork Loin
Easy and delicious! The pork loin was moist even without the juices drizzled over it. I followed the recipe as written and don't think I'd change a thing. The marinade added a subtle flavor and didn't overpower the flavor of the pork. I put the left-over pork in a ziplock bag with the marinade so it can soak up the flavor for yummy leftovers!
