About this Cook
I am a mom to 3 children and wife to Robb. I am also a mommy to a chihuahua and a doxiehuahua
My favorite things to cook
I love grilling and making anything easy. I also prefer to cook things that no one will complain about :)
My favorite family cooking traditions
The kids love to help with all baking! A food tradition we have is for every kids' birthday we bake a face-cake and smash their little faces into it.
My cooking triumphs
I have found ways to sneak onions into my husbands food by pureeing them... you get the flavor but not the texture! I am also happy to have raised kids that like most foods!
My cooking tragedies
I once tried to thicken a sauce in a Pyrex dish on the stove. The dish exploded into tiny pieces... luckily no one was hurt, but our dinner was laced with glass and had to be tossed!

Cranberry Oatmeal Bars
I made this exactly as directed! The result was exactly as described, a moist tart and sweet cranberry oatmeal bar cookie. It was a great way to use up the dried cranberries I had and I believe I will use this recipe again.

Rocky Road Popcorn Truffles
This was a good recipe, though I recommend the following... Add 4 Tablespoons of cream and butter to the chocolate while melting. Adding the milk and butter creates a ganache which is easier to bite through than solid chocolate. Also before pouring the chocolate, move the ingredients to the sides by borrowing a hole in the middle of the ingredients... then pour the choc into the 'hole' and you will find that the chocolate holds the items together. Lastly, pretzels broken into bite-sized pieces are a good substitute for the popcorn and seem to hold the crunch better. Another reviewer complained about chopping the chocolate... I used chocolate chips and found no need for chopping.

Indian-Style Rice with Cashews, Raisins and Turmeric
Great rice dish! I used jasmine rice (rinsed well), and a handful of dried cranberries too. I also omitted the cashews... Great addition to our meal!
