About this Cook
I'm a stay at home mom with two little boys. I am a family person and I love my husband and children.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake sweets, specifically cookies. I enjoy trying new dinner recipes that are easy on the checkbook and the waistline...and even those that aren't so easy on the waistline. (sometimes those are the best)
My favorite family cooking traditions
Baking Christmas cookies. Sugar cookies are my ABSOLUTE favorite.
My cooking triumphs
My first Thanksgiving dinner, all by myself! I didn't know I was capable of such a thing. :) Ok, maybe it was Thanksgiving dinner in January, but the meal was the same. Turkey, potatoes, stuffing...
My cooking tragedies
I still consider myself a newlywed. I was a pro at baking sweets when I got married, but you can't have that for dinner every night. I have had quite a few dinner disasters but my loving husband takes it in stride and cleans his plate. What a nice guy.

Chicken Cordon Bleu II
Simply amazing. The only change I made was using a combination of 3 T. butter and 3 T. olive oil. This may be my new favorite dish. Thank you for this recipe!

Sopapilla Cheesecake Pie
Follow the recipe and you won't be disappointed. I love this recipe because there are not many desserts that go with Mexican food. This is perfect for taco night. It would be nice if the directions included "chill" instead of "cool". It really needs to be refrigerated. We tasted it when it had cooled at room temperate, and it was difficult to cut and soft. After refrigerating, it was easy to serve and just right. Will be making this again. Delicious!

Banana Pudding IV
Delicious! Followed the exact recipe. I took the cream cheese out of the fridge a couple hours before I made this to let it soften and it blended very well. I followed suggestions of another user and blended the ingredients (prior to adding whipped topping) for a few minutes to make it fluffy and thick. I enjoyed this even more the next day. The wafers got soft and it reminded me of a banana moon pie. I brought this for a famiy gathering and everyone rangning in age from 1 to 68 loved it.
