About this Cook
I am a mom of three who thoroughly enjoys cooking for the family.
My favorite things to cook
I LOVE making desserts. One of my favorite things to do is to take high sugar, high fat recipes and turn them into something that everyone in my family can eat. I have a diabetic in the house, so I modify them to sugar free and low fat. Some work, others not so well.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Comfort foods!! My grandmother taught me to make the old fashioned dishes that she grew up eating, and they have become favorites of my children, as well.
My cooking triumphs
Beer ribs and triple berry pie. I can't go to a football party at my brother-in-law's house without the beer ribs.
My cooking tragedies
There are too many to count! I experiment a lot, and not everything works out well. When it does, though, it REALLY works. There is no in between.

Our Favorite Chocolate Cake
I made this cake for work, and got rave reviews. I used butter instead of shortening, and heavy cream instead of the milk. I also added 2oz of chocolate to it, as it was being frosted with chocolate butter cream. Didn't want it to be too sweet. It got rated "absolutely sinful" by one coworker.
