About this Cook
I love Food and I love seeing people enjoy what I've made for them.
My favorite things to cook
I love baking and am known especially for children's birthday cakes. My son thinks about his birthday cake all year long and I just pray that it's doable.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Christmas. Every christmas we do a gingerbread house, hot cranberry drink and a whole lot of cookies. I usually make a traditional Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner at home so we have leftovers and quiet time for just us without all the extended family around.
My cooking triumphs
When my husband says "babe what does this need" and with one taste and a few pinches of this or that, he smiles and we have dinner.
My cooking tragedies
I have been known to use a little bit too much salt when my allergies are bad and I cant taste.

Lemon Blueberry Bread
Love this "bread" even though it's more like a coffee cake. It turned out beautiful but next time I will reduce the amount of sugar, I love sweets but it was a little too sweet for me. I also added a couple more tbsp of lemon juice to make sure it had the lemony taste I was looking for. Yummm...a keeper!

Harden Your Arteries Pie Crust
Once again I've found a winner! This crust was easy to make, easy to work with, and of course most importantly-Delicious! My elderly neighbor told me a few ingredients in her coveted crusts so I did some searching and this is the closest I've found to it and so good it is!

Children's Gingerbread House
I am so glad I found this recipe! I don't believe Christmas comes in a box and that's what I resorted to after a few failed attempts at the perfect ginger bread house. Everything worked out great, thank you for a recipe that I can pass down to my children...
