About this Cook
I live to serve my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I am reminded daily of His perfect love and am always striving to know Him more. I am married to the most wonderful (and handsome!) man on the planet and I love cooking for him! We had our first child on January 12, 2011...our sweet daughter Bethany Joy! :) I feel so blessed to be able to stay at home and be a wife and mommy and continue to cultivate my passion for cooking!
My favorite things to cook
Everything! I love trying new ingredients and methods. My favorite food to make with my husband is our famous eclairs from scratch! My favorite dish to make is stir fry (I am still trying to perfect my wok technique) and I love to bake just about anything!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My favorite tradition is baking cookies around the holidays!
My cooking tragedies
One christmas we had spent the entire day baking a plethora of different cookies. The next day my job was to finish up by baking the very last cookie variety and then make the trays for our neighbors. I preheated the oven, made the dough, and plopped it on the cookie sheet. Much to my dismay when I opened the preheated oven I found out that my dad had stored ALL of the cookies we had made the day before in there...and covered them in plastic. Needless to say, the cookies were all a plastic mess, and I called my dad in tears. He calmed me down, and when he came home from work we spent the evening re-baking. In the end we had a blast, and we still laugh about it today, however in the moment I felt awful!

High-Fiber, High-Protein Breakfast Bars
A few notes from the creator of this recipe: 1) Bake temp should be 350 degrees F. 2) I now use 1/2 cup flaxseed for gluten free. 3) Sometimes I use 2 bananas and 1/4 cup applesauce for a little lighter texture. 4) This recipe makes 6-9 bars, but definitely not 12 if you like to feel full when you eat breakfast! :) These are also really yummy if you use almond butter in the batter instead of peanut butter!!!

Mama's Asian Chicken and Rice
Made exactly to the recipe and was not impressed. I much prefer a different Asian orange chicken recipe on this site.

No Bake Cookies V
LOVE these! I double the peanut butter because I love the stuff and then decrease the margarine accordingly. YUM!
