About this Cook
I'm a full-time working mom, but on the weekends I LOVE to cook - I especially love to bake. My son always asks me to bake his birthday cakes and I'm known at the office as "the baker" because I'm always bringing yummy things in. Cooking is a great stress reliever for me.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake, so cakes, cupcakes, cookies, pies....anything sweet and delectible.
My cooking triumphs
Thanksgiving turkey- my husband and I are always asked to make it- we use Alton Brown's (from Food Network) recipe (romancing the bird) and it's definitely worth the time and effort. I also make a mean summer pasta salad. :)
My cooking tragedies
Oh I've had a few- it's important to try something first before serving it to a crowd. Lesson learned!

Mom's Zucchini Bread
FABULOUS!!! I followed some of the suggestions- 1/2 oil 1/2 applesauce, used 1 cup brown sugar & 1 1/4 cup white sugar, & I used 3 cups of zucchini. It took a little longer to cook- about an hour, but it turned out amazing. Moist...delicious! I'll definitely make this again!

Smooth Buttercream Frosting
FANTASTIC!! I used butter flavored shortening and added 1T lemon juice (went over a lemon cake). I couldn't stop licking my fingers!!!

Cherry Pound Cake
OH so good! I added more cherries & used some of the cherry juice in the icing. I brought it to work and it was gone in an hour and everyone wanted the recipe. I will make this again and again!
