About this Cook
I am definitely not an expert but I have been cooking and baking since I was a teen. I attented culinary school and I am now a semi-professional cake decorator and stay-at-home mom.
My favorite things to cook
I love creating special, one of a kind cakes for children's birthdays. For my family, I focus my cooking on organic and natural foods.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every year, the girls in my family gather for our annual Cookie Day. We spend the day baking cookies for Christmas.
My cooking triumphs
My daughter and I have won "family best" two years running for our gingerbread house in our town's annual Gingerbread House Contest.
My cooking tragedies
Chicken Pot Pie with biscuit topping, the biscuits were raw but my husband ate it anyway. Meatballs, no matter how I try I can't make them.

Chocolate Chip Cheese Ball
I made this a few times for the holidays last year. It is so good! I made it without the nuts. Instead I added mini chips to the outside too. I'm going to make it again this year but I may use it as a filling for a dark chocolate cake.

Apple Pie by Grandma Ople
I was thrilled with the results of this pie. My husband gave it a B compared to his mother's but it didn't stop him from eating over half the pie. The only thing I did differently was to toss the apples in the sugar mixture before placing them in the pie shell. This pie is even better the second day.

Pumpkin Smoothie
After halving the recipe size, I first made this as is and found I had to tweak a bit for my liking. I added a small container of plain greek yogurt, a splash of vanilla extract and some frozen zucchini. It was very filling and the pumpkin flavor came through nicely. I would make this again when I have pumpkin left over.
