About this Cook
I am married with 4 kids and a step-daughter. I used to cook in restaurants, but after awhile, that takes all of the fun out of cooking. Now I don't have to work, so I take care of the kids while the hubby is working and get all of the meals on the table. with 5 kids total, it's not too different from cooking for tons of people, except I get more respect. ;-)
My favorite things to cook
I love cooking spaghetti & meat sauce. It's simple, my step-daughter can help make it and everyone loves it. When it comes to desserts, it has to be Pineapple dump cake.
My favorite family cooking traditions
A good family cooking tradition is, taste. You can follow a recipe all day long, but it's actually tasting your food that is going to make sure that it's to your liking.
My cooking triumphs
My Great Gramma's Chicken & Dumplings. So good and I never thought I'd be able to get the dumplings as soft and fluffy with the sauce as thick and rich. It took quite a long while before I could.
My cooking tragedies
No bake cookies. *sigh* They always turn out too runny and never set right.

Portuguese Sweet Bread II
I love it! Even using an off brand, self-rise flour, (and oh yes, I can tell the difference when it comes to breads) it turned out wonderfully. Even my picky 5 year old ate two slices by itself. Thank you so very much for sharing.

Peach Cobbler IV
I added a bit more sugar to the top of the cobbler but by far, closest recipe to my great grandmother's that I have found. Delicious!

Easy Biscuits
Easy and tastes great. I used butter instead of shortening though. Still a wonderful recipe for biscuits on the fly. Thank you so very much.
