About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake dessert type foods. Its a great stress reliever for me, and it provides my kids and husband goodies to keep them happy.
My cooking triumphs
I have been experimenting with new spices and so far it has been a success. I have a habit of taking a basic recipe (like for marinades) and then adding spices that I think would go good with it. So far, so good!
My cooking tragedies
Any time I make fudge or jello I always ruin it. And I always over cook pork : (

Toscana Soup
We doubled it for our family of 5. I loved the amount of sausage and the addition of bacon was a great touch. We used precooked chicken apple sausage and it was amazing.

Quick and Easy Alfredo Sauce
I love this alfredo sauce but my family thinks its too rich and heavy. Maybe adding a little more cream would thin it out. I loved it, my boys did not.
