About this Cook
I have been cooking since I was a kid in my mom's kitchen. My mother is a terrible cook but I used her red and white checked Betty Crocker as my cooking bible. As a kid I learned how to read recipes and experimented a lot with new ones. When I got married 20 years ago, I was a mediocore cook but the more time I spend in the kitchen,the more successful I have become. I love to try new recipes and love to cook good food for my family of six. I like to experiment with recipes and use my experiences to improve the quality and taste of food.
My favorite things to cook
I mostly love to bake. It's so homey and Martha Stuart! My family loves to eat so they never complain!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love to prepare traditional comfort foods and serve it at the dining room table with a presentation. I usually host large family get-togethers ( we have a very large family) and usually have a theme with the table set in a nice presentation. My family eats together at our dining room table nearly every night which has become a tradition in our home in the last few years. It's awesome to sit with my 4 teenagers each night and share our day over a wonderful home cooked meal.

Strawberry Shortcake with Cheesecake Whipped Cream
Good combo! Next time I will add more sugar, as I felt the whipped cream wasn't quite sweet enough. I layered this with cubed angel food cake and sliced strawberries for a nice change of pace over a slice of angel food topped with strawberries an whipped cream.

Steak Chili
Very hearty! I simmered mine for about 45 minutes, but had to add about a cup of beef broth so there would be enough liquid to simmer. I used 2 jalapeƱos, so that really turned up the heat, which is how we like it. The family really liked it and it was perfect for my hubby who is on the Atkins diet.
