About this Cook
I absolutely LOVE to cook, and wish I could be a stay-at-home wife and mom (now that my kids are in school) so I could have these healthy, amazing meals on the table every night (and still be skinny, of course). I do what I can, when I can, but as a working mother of two active boys, it's not always easy! :)
My favorite things to cook
Desserts of all kinds (I probably single-handedly paid for my dentist's last trip to somewhere exotic), and pretty much anything from scratch.
My favorite family cooking traditions
None...but I've been told I have inherited my late mother's ability to cook good fruit pies, so I'll settle for that.
My cooking triumphs
I cooked my second turkey ever this Thanksgiving, and it was the best Turkey I ever had. Brining the turkey (with more than just salt and water) is the way to go!
My cooking tragedies
Casseroles of any kind. It's a good thing I'm not Lutheran or Methodist! :) Poultry in it's whole form is my nemesis, with turkeys now being the exception. You're next, whole chicken! Maybe someday I'll be able to conquer duck and pheasant, and all those other wild animals.

Whole Grain Waffles
This is an amazing recipe!! So light and fluffy. I had to make a few modifications based on what I had on had, but it turned out great. I subbed white whole wheat flour for the pasty flour, and I didn't have any wheat germ or all-purpose flour on hand, so I used 1/2 cup of cake flour to cover both of those. Best waffles I've ever had! Thanks!!

Onion Pasta
This was a surprisingly excellent pasta! I wasn't sure how it would turn out, but it was delicious! I did cut back on the oil and butter, and added garlic to the onions in the last few minutes, as well as sauteed portobello mushrooms. Absolutely fabulous!! We'll keep this on the menu. Thanks!

Good base (loved the lime/soda/rum ratio) but it needs more mint and more sugar. Otherwise the club soda overwhelms the drink.
