About this Cook
Right now I'm cooking for my three guys - one husband, one toddler, one infant, and also for the company we have over regularly. My husband is a pastor so we have people in our home often. I have no professional training, except for two Wilton Cake courses - which were lots of fun.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake - especially pies and other dessert.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Growing up, my mom always cooked family meals and lots of food for company. I love to follow in those footsteps.
My cooking triumphs
I'm really happy with the time I made homemade pies for 40+ people in July for our open house when we moved into our first home.
My cooking tragedies
Two main tragedies stick in my mind - the night my husband grabbed the cayenne pepper instead of cinnamon and I sprinkled it all over the apple coffee cake I had to take to work the next day, and the time I burnt the chocolate sauce and didn't know it until I poured it over the bundt cake and tasted it (I had to spit it out - it tasted like dirt).

Bran Muffins I
Yummy, yummy muffins. I've made these several times over several years. I've scaled the recipe to make one batch, stored it in the fridge to make bit by bit, made it in large, regular and small muffin pans, added jam to the middle, you name it. Always works well; always tastes great.

Baked Penne with Italian Sausage
I really like to cook this dish. I use Italian Sausage links sliced (into coins) and follow the rest of the recipe as indicated. It's great, easy and works well any night of the week and for company.

Italian Meatball Sandwich Casserole
I've made this lots of times, and it usually is a hit. It's a very heavy meal but tastes just like a meatball sandwich. In my experience a lot of men like this. I will say that my husband and I liked it a lot and he always wanted me to make it earlier in our marriage, but now it's a bit much for us. I only make it maybe once a year now (and we aren't old - he turns 30 this month).
