About this Cook
Married high school sweetheart. Mom of 3 boys (all grown & taller than me now). Love kids. Love baking treats for family & friends. Baking & cooking is like a spa retreat for me. (well, almost:) Always interested in trying new recipes. Love to read cookbooks.
My favorite things to cook
All my family's favorites. Love to bake. Enjoy cooking comfort foods.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I grew up watching my Granny bake all our favorites, from cookies, to German kuchen & German meals like dumplings, cheese buttons.
My cooking triumphs
Each new recipe must pass a family vote. Thumbs up if it's a meal or treat they would like again, thumbs down and it was a one time deal.
My cooking tragedies
I'm not afraid to try new things so no attempt is a tragedy. At least I tried.

Apple Pie Bars
I made exactly as recipe indicated using a variety of apples. These do take some prep time but the flavor is so worth it. The hardest part was rolling out the dough so I'd add flour to the counter as needed and lift the dough to sprinkle flour underneath & continue to roll out. It takes a little work but take the time needed and it will be much easier. Very yummy. These bars are great for bake sales. Once cooled they hold together well.

Peachy Bread Pudding with Caramel Sauce
I followed the recipe exactly and it was wonderful. I will double the sauce next time though. That was super yummy...just not enough.

Ultimate Maple Snickerdoodles
I made exactly as written and they are amazing. We wanted to rename them, French Toast Cookies. We snuck a few when they were still warm...oh dear, they're addictive. This recipe went into our "favorites" file! Only thing different is they took a couple minutes longer to bake but I still kept them under-cooked just a bit. (that's the secret to a perfect cookie)
