About this Cook
mother to three little boys and for my dad and 21 yr old brother, men never do grow up, do they? anyways, i try to cook a variety of food, not always that health conscience, but we keep it interesting.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake, the kids love it that we keep brownies, muffins, cookies, etc... in the house, what they don't know is that all those "sweets" are loaded with carrots, spinach, and other veggies that i've sent through the puree cycle!
My favorite family cooking traditions
every family get together, i am required to bring the green bean casserole(they haven't figured out that the recipe is on the can, so don't tell them) and a banana pudding pie , and i always bring something else that i know they have never had. my kids, and parents are adventurous eaters, but the rest of the fam has to be force fed exotic fare.
My cooking triumphs
my dad and i won third place in a chilli cook off at Ft stewart, ga, when i was 16. very cool.
My cooking tragedies
due to our oven sucking, i burnt my own birthday cake when i turned 15.

Conchas (Mexican Sweet Bread)
i have made these several times, this recipe is pretty close to perfection. My mother's new husband was born and raised in the heart of mexico, and usually has something negative to say about my cooking, but when i make these he has nothing to say at all because he is busy scarfing these bad boys down! My kids love them too and it is so much cheaper than paying for them in stores, and definately better tasting than any store brand. I will be using this recipe for years to come.

Green Bean Bundles I
didn't change a thing, and my kids loved it, now every time i buy green beans, they ask "are you gonna make us some GBbundles?" they really enjoyed them.

Classic Gingerbread Cutouts
these came out so good, i made a train from mine, and unfortunately, the caboose was eaten by my mom's husband, adn my kids before i even got to assemble it. Guess that means they like it too!
