About this Cook
I'm an army wife, mother of one and a native (who misses WA state badly) of the Great Northwest. I love trying new things and there never seems to be enough hours in the day to do everything that I want to get done.
My favorite things to cook
I especially love baking for friends and family. I really enjoy going all out for the different holidays and trying new recipes and having fun with it.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I have a couple of recipes that have been handed down to me by my great grandmother and other family members. I teach my son how to cook so that he doesn't HAVE to depend on others....and yes, he LOVES to cook (he thinks he's the next great Emeril).

Fluffy White Frosting
I could NOT believe how easy this was to make. I read the reviews and followed the general idea. Make sure the whites are room temp and let the sugar mixture cool some before mixing. Also, keep the beaters going and drizzle the hot liquid in. This is the stuff!!! Looks great on my dark chocolate cupcakes for Halloween!!!

Black Bean Salsa
MAKE THIS!!!! Didn't think that I'd like it, but wanted to take a salsa to a potluck. I tried it and really loved the flavor. I had to give out the recipe several times.

Mexican Style Meatballs
Took this to a potluck for my spanish class. All raved and the instructor couldn't leave them alone. There will be NO leftovers!! Even my fussy hubby really enjoyed them, as did my 11 year old. Not too hot, but with enough spice to make them enjoyable.
