About this Cook
I love to cook and bake, depending on the time and patience I'll attempt something that may be complex with lots of steps and attention to detail or something that is quick and easy to whip up with some random ingredients I may have residing in the fridge :) Outside of the kitchen I enjoy running, biking, spending time with the kids, playing at the beach and any opportunity to be with my friends, which is often hard with time schedules, work obligations and that we live in different corners of the states. I am an avid wine connoisseur and enjoy a dark stout during the summer time. Lastly, an area in my life that I'm striving towards is simplifying and making life a little bit easier, abundant and peaceful - I believe it is essential to give in order to receive.
My favorite things to cook
Pretty much anything as long as the end result is satisfying.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Cookies on Christmas Eve to make plates and baskets for our neighbors. Also Easter ambrosia salad is a fav!
My cooking triumphs
First time I served up Thanksgiving for my side of the family. Everything came out divine down to the twice baked yams.
My cooking tragedies
Generally any time I'm adjusting to a new stove...electrics take longer than gas, and if you have food burned on the bottom of the stove, take the time to clean it up, otherwise your sweets may come out tasting like burnt cheese - yuck!

Honey Mustard Grilled Chicken
This was really good and really simple to make. My pickiest eater even loved it! I did sub the steak sauce for soy sauce otherwise made it per instructed. Thanks!

Red, White and Blue Strawberry Shortcake
Nom nom nom. We used a yellow cake and followed the recommendation to use the Whip Cream Vanilla frosting....take the 8oz of cool whip, fold a package of instant vanilla pudding, 1c milk and 1 tsp of vanilla and it was so perfect. Not just for the 4th....all sorts of fruits can be, blackberry, raspberry, boysenberry - etc. We kept the left over frosting for a dip. Super moist and delicious cake!

Crispy Fried Chicken
There was not much taste and I think part of it was because it would be better with the skin on, but I removed it. Maybe I'll make another attempt and add more paprika and some cayenne or something.
