About this Cook
I am happily married, have two grown kids and one granddaughter who is the apple of my eye. I love bodybuilding and have competed on an amatur level 2 years in a row now.
My favorite things to cook
I LOVE to bake, probably because I LOVE to eat what I bake. I also like to try new recipes, it keeps it interesting and expands my taste buds.
My favorite family cooking traditions
The Italian pastas are my favorite, although I don't eat much of it anymore since my hobby has taken me down a different path of eating.
My cooking triumphs
All kinds of baking pastries, cookies, desserts and working with chocolate.
My cooking tragedies
I'm not very good with yeast or bread. It's too bad, because when I do eat that stuff, I love to eat it fresh and homemade.

Peanut Butter Temptations II
I finally got a chance to make these and they were terrific and very, very easy. It took me all of like 1/2 hour to make them. I used PB cups from Trader Joes since I'm not a fan of reeses and they were very peanut buttery, delish!

Bread Machine Pizza Dough
Made this with the "easy pizza sauce" from this site. It was really delish and easy! The only thing I didn't like was having to be proactive enough to remember to let my beer sit out to get flat. Will make again though!
