About this Cook
I'm a Mom of 2 teenagers..14 and 15. Food has always been a way to bring are family together even when we are busy we still eat as a family. My children have never been picky eaters because I've allowed them to help prepare the meals which makes them feel responsible for what we are eating and they have always been willing to try new things. Our family creed has always been..."We can cook anything as long as there are Onions and Garlic in the house":)
My favorite things to cook
Beef and Veggie Stir Fry. Lasagna. Bread. Braciole.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Making Christmas Cookies and Candies with my children and making "Buckeyes" with my Mom and Nana.
My cooking triumphs
I've mastered the art of making flaky pie crust.
My cooking tragedies
Of all the wonderful things I can cook...I can not make Jello. Can you imagine? Plain old Jello.It never turns out right for me.

Carrot Cake III
Ive been a member of this website for a few years but actually found this recipe in the preview of the new magazine that's coming out. This is thee best carrot cake recipe ever!! Very moist and flavorful. I wouldn't change a thing. Ok, maybe I did change something. I left out the pecans and it was marvelous! My daughter was thrilled with it as well, she's very suspicious of any cake that contains veggies. I may have converted her...well at least with this recipe anyway. Thanks!

Chewy Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies
I've been looking for a new chocolate chip cookie recipe and I'm so pleased I found this one. I've been using a basic recipe for years, but really wanted something soft and chewy. This one is soft and the cookies come out like " Bake Shop" cookies. My family loves them I plan on making variations of this recipe with peanut butter or butterscotch chips. Thanks so much for sharing this Excellent recipe...It's a winner!!
