About this Cook
Im a busy Mom of 3 who has a passion for food. I love to tackle new recipes and am always up for a cooking challenge.
My favorite things to cook
Dinners. I love spicing up a weeknight meal with another new dish for the family to try.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Cooking with my youngest daughter. Since she could sit she was stirring along with me and kneading that fondant like playdough! lol
My cooking triumphs
Fondant cakes, which I havent done in over a year. If I had access to larger amounts of supplies and more time it would still be something I did. Maybe again one day.
My cooking tragedies
Cookies. Soft, chewy cookies. I have no idea what I do wrong but 9 times out of 10 they dont stay chewy! Muffins....I think I might over stir them since they usually dont rise well....

French Pastry Pie Crust
Great recipe! I needed a little more water than the 5 tablespoons called for but Im not sure if that was my problem or the recipes. Also, I egg washed the dough once on the pie and sprinkled with sugar. Would use this one again. Thanks!

Apple-Berry Pie
This was really good! I forgot to add the butter before baking it though (I guess it wasn't needed because it turned out great). I used a French Pastry Pie Crust from this site and lattice topped the pie. I didn't need to cover anything with tin-foil and it turned out great!
