About this Cook
I am 45 yr old working wife and mom to three teenage boys- ages 16, 19 and 22. I have always loved to cook and bake and enjoy entertaining. I have worked as a cake decorator for 27 years in numerous bakeries, chain stores and an ice cream shop decorating ice cream cakes. I love to work outside in my garden and can usually be found there in the summers in my spare time.
My favorite things to cook
I like to bake a variety of things- I make alot of cookies because the kids and their friends like them. I like to grill outside and to experiment with different foods on the BBQ. My favorite thing to make is a coconut lime cake that I usually make for my birthday. The added bonus is that no one in the house likes coconut so they leave it alone.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I still make all the Christmas cookies that my Mother used to make. I know she is with me in the kitchen in spirit when I am making them.

Hash Brown Casserole II
Very good. Made it in the crockpot for Christmas morn, turned on high 4 hours but could have gone even five hours. Skipped the topping and sprinkled parm cheese on instead. Would make again.
