Last year I started doing infrequent "movie nights" with my children.  They take turns picking out movies that they would like to watch, usually a newly released movie they haven't seen, but occassionally they will pick out a classic.  I get them all bundled up in their sleeping… MORE

About this Cook
I am the mother of two totally adorable kids. My son is 9 and my daughter is 3. My son is autistic, so feeding him can be a challenge as he has a few texture issues. We live in beautiful Northern Michigan, where the summers are gorgeous, and the winters are COLD and drawn out. Cooking and baking have become a favorite hobby, especially during the long winter months. You can read more about me on my blog
My favorite things to cook
I LOVE to bake breads, cakes and cookies.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I grew up with a mom who is known for her fabulous baking abilities, so we were always decorating cookies, making pies, or baking bread.
My cooking triumphs
I finally learned how to make a pie crust that didn't taste like cardboard, or crumble into a pile on the counter!
My cooking tragedies
An incredible desintegrating pie crust.

Spicy Chipotle Turkey Wraps
I am the recipe submitter...If you do not like super-spicy food, do NOT use the seeds from the chipotle, and cut the adobo sauce down to 1 tsp or less. You can aslo add tomato to boost the nutrutional value (or the taste). Enjoy:)

Chocolate Turtles(R) Cheesecake I
This is supremely excellent! The chocolate cheesecake is silky and rich. The carmel is a perfect creamy consistency. All you could ask for in a turtle cheesecake:) The very minor changes I made after reading several reviews, were to add 2 extra tbsp of butter to the crust, and I used 2 10.5 oz. pkgs of Werther's Chewy Caramels mixed with 1/2 cup evaporated milk. Oh yeah...Make sure you push the crust up the side of your springform pan at least an inch so the caramel won't stick to the pan.

Whole Wheat Banana Nut Bread
This was VERY bland! I even added cinnamon:( I know it defeats the purpose of a healthier bread, but it defintely needs sugar. For a "health" bread it was okay.
