About this Cook
I'm a housewife and mother to two little boys under two! My goal is to have them grow up saying "my mom is the best cook in the world!" I also want to have a few specialties that "only I" can make right, and be able to make cookies without looking at a recipe. I love trying new things and am constantly experimenting on my husband...
My favorite things to cook
I love love love ethnic foods, Greek, Indian, Asian, you name it. I'm learning, slowly, how to bake with good results. I always like keeping the "secret ingredient" secret :)
My favorite family cooking traditions
My moms famous sayings in the kitchen were "I'm not making any guarantees" and "You'll never have this again". Just use whats in the fridge! My grandmother is a pretty good cook, my favorite was always the raisin cookies at Christmas!
My cooking triumphs
Chicken with cider and bacon sauce, the ultimate dinner!
My cooking tragedies
Too many to list... I have made chili that was so hot no one could eat it, Alfredo sauce made with sweetened condensed milk, and a cake that tasted like playdough!

Pumpkin Fudge
The fudge itself came out prefectly, but it's sooooo sweet! You can only eat very tiny bits at a time. My husband, who is not a sweet eater, couldn't stomach it, but other people didn't seem to mind it. I ended up making truffles out of it by letting it soften and rolling it into balls and then dunking them in melted chocolate. This was a big hit. My mom even asked for the recipe!

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies III
Everyone who has eaten these cookies has loved them, and then asked for the recipe! A few tips: 1. don't use applesauce instead of oil, the cookies come out more like bread and are too tough. 2. substitute mini reeses pieces, or peanut butter chips for the chocolate chips. Sounds weird, but tastes delicious. 3. as you take cookies out of the oven, or a minute before, flatten cookies with a spatula. This way they look more like cookies than little puffs. Also, I think they taste better. All around a great recipe and I love that it doesn't have butter in it!
