About this Cook
Stay at home mom with 3 children and a great husband. Love to bake food for family and friends
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake. I enjoy making food for friends and family. It's really rewarding when someone enjoys something that I have made for them.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Baking sugar cookies. Gathering at my mother's house for all the holidays and cooking with my siblings. Summer grill outs where everyone brings a dish to pass- I always bring the dessert!
My cooking triumphs
My cooking tragedies
Lemon meringue Pies that do not set up. Finally figured that out on the day I went to the hospital to have my 3rd daughter. Had my husband bring the pie to the hospital so I could see if it turned out- it did

Creamy Hot Chocolate
Really good! I made this for my kids after our local Christmas parade. I think some people are mistaking evaporated milk for sweetened condensed, which is what the recipe called for. I also used more liquid than called for, about 8 cups total, half milk and half water. I was also about 1/4 short on cocoa powder and so I used some milk chocolate chips. Didn't have the gritty-ness others mentioned but I also used a whisk. Served it with whipped cream-heavenly.

Alfredo Sauce
Really good sauce but if you have left overs, DO NOT put it on the psat to store. reheated it becomes grainy - it is authentic though, so that's what you get. Store it seperately.
