About this Cook
Loving (and food-loving) wife and mom. Nothing excites me more than the prospect of making a new dish or creating a new recipe!
My favorite things to cook
I've always enjoyed baking more than anything else, but recently I've been trying to become proficient at soup- and bread-making!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday and it's the one time during the year that all of my family's favorite dishes come together for one meal. Mostly, the dishes are classic American dishes, some with a slight German flair.

Make-Ahead Vegetarian Moroccan Stew
I wanted to make something a little different for a change and decided this recipe would probably be very well-received in our home. I didn't change the recipe and found it to be very good and extremely filling. I would have preferred a little more heat but this is definitely a keeper. I'll just play with the spices a little to taste. Definitely give it a try!

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins
As others have said, this recipe is a bit bland and could stand a few substitutions but it's a keeper once you find out how you best like it! It's definitely an EASY and fast recipe and makes the house smell wonderful! As for substitutions, I, too recommend using brown sugar instead of white, applesauce instead of oil and perhaps some vanilla extract and more spices, more pumpkin. This is actually great with a little cream cheese on top and a cup of coffee on the side. (By the way, I used mini choco chips and found that they were just big enough!) Happy Baking!

Peanut Butter Cake II
This cake is excellent, and not at all dry! It's got a great peanut butter taste that's not too sweet--when coupled with a sweet frosting it works very well! I made a few changes to make the cake more peanut butter and chocolate, as this was my BF's birthday cake and he loves the combination. I just put a layer of whipped chocolate frosting between the two layers of cake, and made a peanut butter buttercream frosting to frost the outside of the cake. I then decorated with the remaining chocolate frosting. The cake was delicious and was in fact better after being refrigerated overnight! Try it!
