About this Cook
A stay at home mom right now with a 4 year old and 1 yr old. That keeps me pretty busy! I like to scrapbook and create art to sell. I have more on-line friends I've never met than 'real' ones.
My favorite things to cook
Deserts, but then I eat them - so I really try NOT to bake :)
My cooking triumphs
Getting my 4 year old to eat vegetables!
My cooking tragedies
I recently destroyed a batch of snickerdoodle cookies by trying to use sugar substitute and whole wheat flour... And of course the time I tried to clean my oven and almost electrocuted myself.

Cauliflower Au Gratin
I baked the dish in the oven WITHOUT steaming the cauliflower first. I don't like mushy veggies. I added broccoli florets too, about half a head of cauliflower and almost equal amounts broccoli, washed and cut small with no stems. I mixed it all together so that my uncooked veggies wouldn't scorch. Baked about 20 minutes then added french's fried onions to the top until they were crispy. Yummy.

No-Cream Pasta Primavera
Not really my favorite flavor profile, but it was edible. Makes a huge batch! I turned the leftovers into a baked dish and smothered it in a homemade red sauce and mozzarella, it was like a nice vegetable lasagna.

Amazing Lemon Scones
Very good, though I have had better. I followed the directions exactly. It took me 2 lemons to get the amount of zest needed (just FYI). My husband loved them. I might cut back the lemon juice in the frosting just a little next time. Really rather easy to make.
