About this Cook
I'm a young mom of one with two step kids and a husband to cook for!
My favorite things to cook
I love making up new casseroles, and I adore making desserts, especially Christmas cookies!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I adore making Christmas cookies and desserts. I love preparing food for parties and get-togethers where I can get feedback on a new dish or rave-reviews in an old favorite.
My cooking triumphs
Spritz cookies with raspberry preserves, "poor man's rice", cranberry orange bars...I'm still working...(more coming soon)!
My cooking tragedies
We have an old gas stove that never cooks at the temperature it's set at. The first time I tried to cook brownies in it they were burnt so bad they were black a whole inch in and the little part that was brown tasted like it was black!

Creamy Potato Soup
This is a great soup to start with but if you like your potato soup white thick and creamy you will have to modify this a bit. I didn't use the flour, paprika or water. Just cook the veggies right in the milk. On the side I mixed sour cream (x2), 8oz. cream cheese, salt, pepper, Garlic salt and powder, and half a cup of grated Parmesan cheese. when the veggies were cooked I stirred this in to the with the milk. I removed it from the heat and added the bacon right to the pot. I also stirred in some butter to round out the creamy texture. I let the soup stand for ten to fifteen minutes and it did indeed thicken and was the best potato soup I have ever had! All together with prep and cooking it took about an hour! I really encourage you to try this again!
