About this Cook
I am an over-committed working single Mom with two very active kids. I am interested in eating "in" more, eating more healthy foods, and growing our own foods as a family that is in a hurry all the time.
My favorite things to cook
I love baking with my kids at the holidays. However, I am not a great baker. I can do pies and cakes. I am not so good at pastries or even cookies. I think this has to do with my impatient nature.
My cooking triumphs
My baking is improving steadily and my cake decorating is becoming a passion. Even my eight-year old son now likes this, thanks to the TV program "Ace of Cakes" where they make Star Wars and Army helicopter cakes.
My cooking tragedies
Too much experimentation and short-cutting has led to too many unhappy endings to list here!
