Rainbow Clown Cake-Halloween Version
About this Cook
I am a stay at home mother to three beautiful children. Aimee is 19, Tyler is 13 and Will is 8. My husband is a family practice physician in our hometown.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook. I enjoy cooking all sorts of things, from the simple to the complex. I really love to bake. My sweet tooth carries over into my cooking! I would love to learn the art of cake decorating.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mother has always had a Christmas tradition of making tons of fudge and peanut butter balls and coconut balls. When I was about 7 I took an interest in helping her out. I enjoyed rolling the balls and being the taste tester! Since I moved out on my own I have continued this tradition. My children and I make candy for a month during the holidays. It is a wonderful time to bond and to teach them a little chemistry without them knowing it! I also try to make new dishes and introduce my family (who think I cook a lot of "weird stuff") to new foods and styles of cooking. One Thanksgiving I made a sweet potato and plantain mash and they thought I was nuts! But there was not a drop leftover...
My cooking triumphs
I was the queen of my sons first grade class when I baked and decorated spiderweb cupcakes and made a graveyard cake. They thought I was so cool. That was my "rock star" moment!
My cooking tragedies
My husband is a big clam fan. For our first wedding anniversary I decided to surprise him with a candlelight dinner starring pasta with white clam sauce. We live in a very small Kentucky town. The only clams I could find were canned. I had no idea how to handle them. Needless to say, it was not by best dish. He ate it and said he loved it anyway. Bless his heart, I tasted it and ended up feeding it to the cat. I have never tried to make that again. Maybe one day...

Hasenpfeffer (Rabbit Stew)
Everyone loved this dish! I used 5 wild rabbits and added some thick sliced baby bella mushrooms the last hour of cooking. Can't wait to make this again!!

Mushroom Rice
This was an easy, tasty side dish! I used cremini mushrooms and upped the garlic and onion.

Modenese Pork Chops
Quick, easy family pleaser! The only changes I made were to brown the chops in a mixture of half olive oil, half butter, I added more garlic and used fresh rosemary. My picky eaters really liked this, and that says a lot in this house. One of my sons rarely eats meat and ate an entire pork chop. Thanks for a great recipe!
