About this Cook
Happily married with three kids and a very spoiled dog.
My favorite things to cook
Pasta, soups, hearty breads/rolls, vegetables with a twist, and anything with chocolate
My cooking triumphs
My first ever baked cheesecake in a water bath. Raspberry with a chocolate crumb crust. Was always too timid to try it, waste ingredients and have it flop as i heard how tricky it could be. But, following a recipe with few changes as per reviews, made it a whopping success! It was heavenly.

Chococonut Chip Cookies
Awesome. Was a bit short on coconut so used 1/4c oatmeal to make up difference. As another user suggested, used 1/2 butter, 1/2 marg. Convect baked at 350 for 9 min., 2 sheets at a time on parchment paper. May need to make again in a couple days. Kids love them! Hope their dad gets some after work...

Pumpkin Pancakes
I made this recipe exactly as is-- turned out excellent. Took advice from another review and did not add anything to thin, but just spread my pancake out onto griddle with a spatula. They take a bit longer to cook than regular pancakes but they are very filling, and a nice treat from the everyday pancakes. My son loves anything pumpkin, and these were no exception

Janet's Rich Banana Bread
I made this recipe exactly as is only substituting the walnuts with chocolate chips (kids request). It turned out fabulous. Really moist but not falling apart. I will probably never make a different banana bread recipe.
