About this Cook
I'm a mom. I have one little one, Aden. He's under 2 so it's an adventure finding things he likes to eat that don't come out of a Gerber jar.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake. I'm constantly baking something. I also am the "Appetizer Queen" at family functions.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Baking sugar cookies with my grandma, sister, and cousins at Christmas time.
My cooking triumphs
Mastering the perfect marinara sauce. It's to die for. I'd put it up against any old Italian ladies recipe.
My cooking tragedies
Several years ago O learned why it's not ok to go without the baking soda in any recipe. Go out and buy some if you don't have it in the house. Even if there is 8 inches of snow and ice outside. HAHA!

Parmesan Potato Soup
The boyfriend made this for our family the other night. He used a few different kinds of cheese instead of just the parmesan. It was awesome! For sure a keeper.

Jan's Chocolate Cake
This wasn't as chocolatey as I like. I may add a bit more cocoa next time. A good recipe though. Very easy. You definetly need to spray your pans/muffin cups. I forgot and had some sticking issues. My fault though. :)

Quick and Almost-Professional Buttercream Icing
This was excellent! I doubled the recipe to ice a 2 layer cake and it was just the right amount. It tasted great and my boyfriend couldn't believe I made it from scratch. I'll never buy store bought icing again!
