About this Cook
well i am a married mother of 4 children ranging in ages from 10 to 2 years. my children and husband share in my love of cooking and baking and always love when i find new recipies to try out on them. they are always willing to try anything i cook and rarely ever do they tell me that they don't like it. i also love playing outside with the kids when we have some down time and cuddling on the couch with my husband at night when the kids are in bed to watch our t.v. shows for the week.
My favorite things to cook
i love to cook just about anything that i find interesting or that is family friendly. also things that are quick and easy for those rushed days.
My favorite family cooking traditions
our traditions usually involve my sister who has 2 boys of her own. every birthday for the kids her and i get together and make their cakes. it is so much more fun, less expensive and the kids love the fact that we did it ourselves and put the time and love into their special day. at halloween we do caramel apples from scratch and at christmas we do gingerbread houses and cookies. we let the kids do all the fun stuff with them, we just do the grunt work. seeing how much fun they have is all the thanks we need.
My cooking triumphs
i put time and hard work into all my cooking and baking so i triumph at almost everything i cook or bake. if it doesn't come out the way i like it by the recipe i have, i alter to what the opinions of my family and myself are.
My cooking tragedies
i would have to say the only tragedy i have in the kitchen are homemade biscuits. i can never get them to come out right.

Best Brownies
I made these for my daughters sleep over. They were easy and delicious. Although I thought that the frosting tasted too much like the vanilla and it was a little hard to spread. Next time I will leave out the vanilla and add some milk to make it smoother and easier to spread. Other than that I will never buy brownie mix again. My daughters and their friends loved them and it's an easy recipe for the kids to do themselves!!

Awesome Broccoli Casserole
I followed the recipe but left out the onion because i didn't have any and cooked it a little while longer and everyone raved. This will be a regular.

Double Quick Dinner Rolls
I made these for Easter dinner and they were the best rolls i've ever had. I just started making my own bread and rolls and these were easy and quick. These are something that will be a regular in my home. The only thing i did that the recipe didn't call for was use an egg wash just before baking. It made them a little crispier on the outside but still light and fluffy on the inside! My husband and kids raved!!

Hard to believe, but many kids will be back in school at the end of the month. Get ready.
