About this Cook
I am 27 years old, married and have 2 very small children. I LOVE cooking for my family and at least once a week I've been trying out new recipes on them. (I get especially excited when I can get my 2 year old to eat something new!) My hubby is a really picky eater so I have had the challenge of finding foods he'll eat. Lately I've discovered that cooking is really what "makes me tick." I have always loved doing it and it makes me feel great when I cook something and everyone is raving about it.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake. Anything. I finally got brave enough to bake the cake for my son's b-day party from scratch. Everyone loved it! Probably my all-time fav recipe is my grandma's pie. There's no real recipe, she had to teach me how to make it. I'm the only one in the family who got to learn it.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I'm starting to be able to cook with my 2 year old. I'm going to be getting matching aprons for us (I know, kinda cheesy) to wear when we bake together. I used to love to bake with my grandma. She didn't care about spilling.
My cooking triumphs
The best would have to be my grandma's blackberry pie. Like I said, there's no recipe. Everything is "a little of this a little of that." So when I was able to make it on my own and it tasted exactly like hers, I was thrilled. (so was everyone else)
My cooking tragedies
No specific incident, but there have been a couple times when I tried a new recipe for a food I hadn't tried before and my husband and I agreed it wasn't very good. Had to throw the whole thing out and make something else. Only happened maybe 2-3 times.

Mrs. Sigg's Fresh Pumpkin Pie
LOVED this! I made it exactly as written, and had filling leftover for some reason. Prob another 1/2 pie worth- I used a ready-made shortbread crust, which was great for this recipe. There is a lot of spice flavoring, it's not bland. And you can distinguish the spices more than the already made frozen, and it was the best pumpkin pie I've had. My 3 and 4 yr old loved it too! I shared with a friend who IMMEDIATELY asked for the recipe even before she finished her first bite. Thank you for sharing!

Rhubarb Cake I
REALLY good cake! I took the advice from a few other reviews and added some extra rhubarb (prob did about 3 and 1/2 cups total), and substitued 1/2 the flour with whole wheat flour. Then I topped with diced strawberries before adding the crumbs. Sorry I usually don't review when I've made changes, but I really had to. I LOVE this recipe! I will be making again and again. Very moist and lots of flavor. Thank you for sharing!!!

Elegant Orzo with Wilted Spinach and Pine Nuts
I have a new fav recipe! Thank you for sharing! It actually tastes better the next day as left-overs, and if there's tons left and you're looking for something different to do with it, you can just add some spaghetti sauce! The ONLY thing I changed was just adding salt to taste (per plate) and left out the vinegar just because I REALLY don't like vinegar. Otherwise, made as-written and it's incredible!
