About this Cook
I have a fantastic husband and eight loud, rowdy, hungry children. I have a business on the side which keeps me busy so I like to plan and post all our meals. I no longer use cookbooks! I just open my iPad and click on this site. Love it!
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake bread because it makes the house smell amazing.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We have supper together every night. A different child helps with the planning, cooking/baking and clean-up each night.
My cooking triumphs
My husband thinks I rock in the kitchen. Our older kids appreciate the time I have spent making our family fantabulous food!
My cooking tragedies

Sangria! Sangria!
We had a Sangria taste-off. I used this recipe and my "authentic" friend from Panama used his grandfather's recipe. I won. I use blackberry brandy and the cheapest bottles of wine. I also let it sit in the fridge THEN freeze. Why? I have large parties and never know how much of this to make. So I make six batches and freeze. I put a frozen section into my punch bowl and pour Sierra Mist over the top and it gets slushy. (Alcohol doesn't really freeze solid.). I then add fresh oranges and raspberries. (I have also added fruit at stage one and frozen it. That allows the berries to soak up the alcohol; I prefer fresh berry taste vs. laden with brandy.) Making it ahead allows me to focus on other things the week of the party, knowing my Sangria is done. Everyone asks me for this recipe. I claim it as my own. :)

Grandma Johnson's Scones
I made these tasty scones twice and the second time I used my food processor. That made it so much easier! As I dumped out the dough I added a cup of white chocolate chips and worked that into the dough. Then I split the dough into fourths and formed each section into a six inch circle. I then spooned raspberry jelly on one surface and then placed a second circle on top. It was somewhat equal. :) I cut 8 pie-like wedge pieces then placed them on an air-bake cookie sheet. (my other cookie sheet burned the bottom before the middle was done!). I repeated for the other two circles, making a total of 16 scones. To make prettier, I drizzled white chocolate on the top. They were fabulous. I gave them as gifts.

Butternut Squash Soup
I have made this twice. Both were amazing. Second time was easier because I simply baked the squash (cut open, remove seeds and place flesh-side down on aluminum foiled pan) for an hour. I sauteed onion, boiled the water then combined all with the squash and seasonings. I pureed with little hand-held blender. So easy! The flavor is incredible; I added heavy cream because I am out of cream cheese.
