My Mommy and I
About this Cook
I love to play piano and guitar, wish I could sing. My greatest happiness is loving and taking care of my parents and siblings, and seeing them happy. This year my goal is to create the most colorful, wonderful experiences each season, especially Halloween time, Autumn/Thanksgiving, and Christmas/holiday season for my family with food, decorating, activities and love.
My favorite things to cook
Anything my family wants to eat.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We have an annual Thanksgiving potluck with five other families on the block. My neighbor makes the turkey, we all bring dishes, then stuff ourselves into one living room to enjoy entertainment put on by all of us kids while eating dessert, then watch a movie together <3

Easy Peach Crisp II
My sister and I made this last night with peaches/nectarines that were getting too soft, and our whole family (and neighbors) loved it! We made half the original recipe, and substitutions because we were afraid of so much white flour and sugar, so we ended up with the following: 5 peaches, 1/2 cup whole wheat flour, 1/2 cup all-pur. flour, 1/2 cup white sugar and 1/4 cup packed brown sugar, pinch of salt, 3/4 tsp cinnamon, pinch of nutmeg, and a sliver less than 1 stick of butter. Did everything according to the recipe, but the measurements gave us too much topping and not enough fruit--we filled our glass gratin bowl, a tiny loaf pan, AND a small pie pan filled with a quickly chopped fuji apple. That's how much extra crisp topping we had, but the end result was such a wonderful hot crisp to go perfectly with vanilly ice cream. Thank you!
