About this Cook
I'm a mother and wife, I like preparing meals for my family rather than constantly eating out. I also like trying a new dish at least once a week. I try to plan weekly menus but haven't perfected it just yet.
My favorite things to cook
Banana pudding, cakes, chocolate chip cookies & spaghetti
My favorite family cooking traditions
My cooking triumphs
I finally mastered macaroni and cheese!! Yum, yum, it took me two years to perfect it but I didn't give up and my dedication paid off.
My cooking tragedies
Dressing, no matter which recipe I try- it always comes out a disaster. Any suggestions are welcomed. HELP!

Peanut Butter Cup Cookies
Very easy recipe to follow and my kids love these. I made them last year for Christmas, I add green food coloring to them to make them into Christmas cookies & the kids are requesting them again this year. I followed the recipe as written and they came out perfectly.

Peach Cobbler V
I read this recipe & thought it was too easy to taste good. Since when is making peach cobbler this easy? I had to try it. I did follow the suggestions of other reviewers & upped the flour. I also used four fresh peaches, added 1 tsp nutmeg, ginger, cinnamon, 1 tsp vanilla & 1 tsp lemon extract. Instead of just letting the sugar sit on my fresh peaches, I boiled the sugar, peaches, & seasonings while I prepared the flour mixture. It came out delicious!!! So easy and everyone loved it.

Banana Pound Cake With Caramel Glaze
I baked this cake, and it came out delicious. I was out of vanilla extract so I used one teaspoon of lemon extract & one teaspoon of almond extract. I also only had one cup of brown sugar so used 2 cups white sugar & 1 cup one brown sugar. The cake still came out delicious minus my substitutions. I also used vegetable oil instead of shortening. I think this recipe is just a no-fail recipe & the whole family loved it!!! Will indeed make again, except next time I'll have all the ingredients on hand. :)
