About this Cook
I wish I had time to cook! Unfortunately my job in the airline industry makes that tough. Whenever I am home it's all socializing and eating out. I'm hoping I can get back into cooking more this year!
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake. I am trying to make actual meals, though as well bc i gotta eat more than just desserts! Also, I swear, I have an addiction to peanut butter! I bake with it a lot, as well as make smoothies, use it on waffles, use it as a dip for various fruits! Whenever i go to my parents house, my brother is always looks at me and says, " peanut butter cookies again!?" haha
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every Christmas, my family makes homemade spaghetti sauce and manicotti. We occasionally make the spaghetti sauce throughout the year, but when it comes to manicotti, only on Christmas! I refuse to eat manicotti any other time of the year!
My cooking tragedies
When i was younger, i tried to make lasagna and didnt know the difference between tsp and tbsp. Well, i ended up putting in over a tbsp of salt and pepper insead of a tsp into the recipe! Well that was the end of that lasagna!

Janet's Rich Banana Bread
Ohh wooowwww, this bread is amazing! Tasted the left over batter and had to scrape the bowl clean. Shared the finished product with my pilots (I'm a flight attendant) and they couldn't get enough of it. Also helped, I'm sure that my bananas were practically black. The riper the better! Will be a regular every time I forget to eat my bananas!

Bobbie's Oatmeal Cookies
Wow, are these dangerous!! In a really good kinda way! I was looking for yummy cookie recipe so i could finally use up my cinnamon chips! I used them in place if raisins, pecans and choc chips. That's the only change I made..w/the exception of letting the vanilla spill over more than 1tsp. Froze most of the dough for later. Yummmmm
