About this Cook
I am wife, mommmy to two adorable kiddos ( a boy age 9 & a girl age 14), I also keep my niece who is four full time and nephew who is 11 months. I will be substitute teaching this fall. I enjoy cooking & eating, being with my family, entertaining, watching tv & movies - love court shows & reality shows, seeing new places, relaxing, etc.
My favorite things to cook
desserts, appetizers, & casseroles.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I really don't have many of those. When I was growing up my dad yelled at me while I cooked gravy - now I can make a fantastic gravy that makes even my mother in law envious...does that count?? Lol
My cooking triumphs
I think that just learning on my own is a triumph in itself. I have mastered that art of cooking things that are simple and making them taste like I spent all day on them!! I love to search and find new quick dishes!
My cooking tragedies
Once I tried to make stew...not a good experience for any of us. Not even the dog would eat it...'nuff said. :)

Easy Peach Cobbler
This recipe came out bad, I followed the directions exactly with the exception of using a much larger jar of peaches. The crust was just awful. It was a weird texture and had no flavor whatsoever. I took it to my neighbor's for dinner and was very embarrassed and disappointed. NO ONE liked it in the least.

Easy Iced Coffee
I gave this recipe four stars because it was a super platform! I used reviewer dshea4's changes and then tweaked it some more on my own. I followed dshea4's but varied by using Swiss Mocha International Coffee from General Foods. I don't like it as a hot drink so this was perfect!! Then I used chocolate flavored powdered coffee creamer. Drizzled the top with whip cream - yum!!! It was *almost* as good as something at Starbucks. Even my husband, who poo poo's the idea of frozen cappuccinos or iced coffee drinks, LOVED it!!! Awesome!!

Lemon-Pepper Salmon II
Pretty good with minimal effort. It is a good flavor when you are short on ingredients and time!
