About this Cook
I will cook anything as long as there are no nuts or mushrooms. Does that make me sound like I'm 4 years old? I can't help it! Actually baking is like therapy for me. I'd cook all day if I had time.
My favorite things to cook
Love, love, love baked goods! I'd pick pie over eggplant any day of the week. Luckily I started going to the gym a few times a week to even out the odds. I love stuff I bake a million times over store bought items. The cool thing is that my son feels the same. He's even making his own cookies for his friends now. Gotta love the teenagers!
My favorite family cooking traditions
The whole family ends up coming over every holiday. It's a huge thing! You know I wouldn't have it any other way but next Christmas might be potluck.
My cooking triumphs
Everytime I cook I get happy. That's not a pyschological problem is it?
My cooking tragedies
yea right, my stories will put you to sleep.

One Bowl Chocolate Cake I
I've made this a couple times and have received huge reviews each time. I did not alter the recipe in any way and made a two layer cake one time and cupcakes the other. Both were perfect. I used 7 minute frosting because I like the taste and color contrast but would be amazing with a coordinating chocolate buttercream or something. Even my sister, who usually skips dessert, went gaga over this. Thank you for sharing, Shirley!

Coconut Pound Cake
So moist and delicious! I substituted coconut milk, as another reviewer suggested, and added a tiny bit of salt. I didn't have anything to measure the 3.5 oz of shredded coconut so I used a 1/2 cup in the batter. Made cupcakes with them and used a coconut cream cheese frosting. Oh man, I'm in love. Yay- a new favorite!

Meatball Soup
This was a perfectly easy recipe and well liked by my family. I think I would use broth next time for more flavor as well as tomato paste. I added a couple bay leaves, some chopped onion and a little more tomato sauce. Next time I will leave the cooked macaroni on the side so it doesn't get too mushy for the next day or freezing. Thank you for the submission!
