About this Cook
I'm a stay at home mother of a one year old girl and 6 year old boy. I love to cook and bake and find myself learning more and more everyday.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake! My favorite cake to bake is my pumpkin cake! It's great for fall but I love it so much I end up making it all the time!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I am learning to make homemade bread, noodles, pasta and pie crust. I am hoping this continues down with my children.
My cooking triumphs
My first attempt at homemade french bread actually turned out pretty amazing. I was stunned because I really didn't expect it to turn out well at all.

Almost No Fat Banana Bread
This is pretty good, especially for low fat. I make banana bread a lot so I'm used to the high fat kinds but this is really good if you're trying to watch what you are eating. I did add a little salt to it.

Greek Penne and Chicken
Wonderful flavor!!!! I did take others suggestions and used a can of diced tomatoes istead of a whole tomato. I also used olive oil & some of the marinade from the artichokes to cook the onions, garlic and then added more of the marinade when I added the chicken. It gave it great flavor. I also seasoned the chicken before adding to skillet. If you find it still a little dry, add some of the water used to cooked the penne into the mixture. I didn't need to do this but the water used to cook pasta adds nice flavor and moisture to most pasta sauces. I also doubled the feta and saved half to top the pasta and used only 12 oz of pasta (MAKES PLENTY). My whole family LOVED this dish! It makes WAY more than 4 servings.
