About this Cook
I am a wife and mother of two. I have recently changed my outlook on food and have completely revamped my menu system. I now view food as fuel for the body, so it should be healthy. Having said that, that doesn't mean that it can't be delicious. I admire Martha Stewart in every way. I love to entertain. I love to cook. I love to bring family and friends together.
My favorite things to cook
Vegetarian cuisine, Mexican, Italian, Desserts and brunch recipes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We are a very out-of-the-box family and do not have many family food traditions other than sugar cookies and eggnog around the Christmas season.
My cooking triumphs
Working with phyllo is a very stressful thing for me and I was proud of myself when the mini phyllo cups turned out perfectly. Phyllo actually drove me to drinking one afternoon. Fondant, too. Fondant is a skill that should be celebrated by everyone!
My cooking tragedies
I made very a very delicate and time consuming Halloween treat called Boo! cups. My brother dropped them. Needless to say, I cried.

World's Best Peanut Butter Fudge
This recipe was fantastic. I have been meaning to make this fudge for the holidays but have never actually done it. Today is my mom's birthday, so I made her a chocolate mayonnaise cake and topped it with this fudge (I halved the recipe and it worked perfectly). This is just like my Grandma Margaret used to make. Eating it makes me feel five again. Thank you!

Award Winning Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies
This is a really great cookies recipe, regardless of the negative reviews. I think that this cookie recipe depends on the person's fundamental baking skills and knowledge. First of all, the people who claim that the cookie is cake-like are baking these too long. BASIC baking tips: The butter and eggs must be room temperature. Anyone who bakes on the expert level should know this. You must have an oven thermometer. Use parchment paper or silicon baking mats to prevent brown bottomed cookies.

Anniversary Chicken I
I was having a very hectic day. I gave verbal instructions to my husband, hoping it would turn out edible. WOW! It was fantastic. He had a big grin on his face through dinner. I'm not sure if it's because he was pleased with himself or because it was so delicious. Either way, he was right.
