About this Cook
I am a wife and mother who loves to cook and bake for my family.
My favorite things to cook
I am always looking for new recipes to try. It is a challenge, because my husband is really picky. I love to bake also.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Sunday Morning Biscuits
My cooking tragedies
When making a 7-up cake for Easter dinner for my in-laws, I let the cake sit too long in the pan, and the top half stuck to the pan. It tasted good, but so much for presentation.

Creamy Rice Pudding
So easy and so tasty! Will definately make again. I did add a little "cake spice" to this, which is a mix of allspice, ginger, cinnamon, coriander, and nutmeg. Delicious! Update: I made this again using instant brown rice. I had to use 1 tsp cornstarch to help it thicken up, I am assuming because I used instant rice. I added extra cinnamon as well as raisins. It is my new favorite

American Chop Suey II
Very quick and easy. I used about 1 1/2 cups of macaroni for mine. My boys loved it. I would definately make it again. I usually make goulash with diced tomatoes, and my youngest always makes me pick them out, but this he didn't complain about one bit. So I will use this recipe now instead of making it with canned tomatoes. Thanks for a great recipe!!

Banana Bars
These were really good. I used 2 bananas, no lemon juice or walnuts. I didn't make the frosting. The bars are very sweet, and I don't think they need it.
