About this Cook
I am the mother of 3 awesome, beautiful children - 2 boys and one girl. I am a stay at home mom and I absolutely love it! I like to cook, but now with three kids, I like to find quick and easy recipes that taste gourmet! : ) I have many hobbies and I'm always finding new things to do. I love to do crafty stuff. My newest "hobby" is cake decorating. I love it!
My favorite things to cook
I decorate cakes, so now I love to do that and I'm always looking for good cake recipes. As far as the normal everyday fare, I like to keep it new. I don't like to make the same things every week. I definitely have my favorite recipes, but I'm not the type to have the same stuff week after week.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every Christmas Eve, my brothers and sisters and I, along with our families, get together to do fondu at my Parents' house. It's so much fun and everybody just loves it! On Christmas morning we make "Escamochas" with is fresh fruit, cut up into about 1" cubes, with sweetened condensed milk poured over it, and then you add pecan and/or shredded coconut if you like. It's sooooooooo good!
My cooking triumphs
My first wedding cake was for my sister's wedding and I must admit, it turned out really well. I was relieved and it felt great to see that I could actually make a great wedding cake AND transport it to another location without it falling apart!
My cooking tragedies
The first time I had my inlaws over for Thanksgiving, I followed the wrong advice for cooking the turkey and it was way undercooked when it came time to eat. I was soooo embarrassed! Someday I'll have them over again for turkey (if they'll come) and this time it'll be cooked and delicious. That's the first and last time I've ever had an undercooked bird.

Spaghetti Carbonara II
This was really easy to make and delicious. My 9 year old and 7 year old even loved it. I substituted chicken broth for the wine and I only used about 1/8 cup. Other than that I did everything exactly as the recipe said. I'll definitely be making this again.

Banana Oat Muffins
Everyone in my family loved these, even my very pick 11-year old. In fact, he said that he gives them 4.99 stars - he would have given them 5 stars if I had made them bigger. :)

Blackened Tilapia with Secret Hobo Spices
I was really looking forward to delicious blackened tilapia tonight but this did not fit the bill. There is WAY too much paprika in this recipe...it overpowered everything. A generous squeeze of fresh lemon juice made it more palatable but I will never use this recipe again.
