About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
I love making theme food. Like decorated cakes and cookies to go along with school projects for the kids or holiday food.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love baking with my kids. Every year we make dozens of gingerbread cookies to decorate and hang on the Christmas tree. It takes us about a week but we enjoy the time together. We talk about our best decorated cookies from years past.
My cooking triumphs
I guess whenever I make something and people ask for the recipe that is a triumph. I've noticed that whenever I bring something to a party or family gathering, my husband and kids always go for my food first, that makes me feel good!
My cooking tragedies
I've been cooking a long time and so have had many cooking disasters. Most of them lately seem to involve the dog or cat eating a fresh baked batch of something that no one even got to try!!!

Food for the Gods
I read all the reviews and did decrease the sugars to 3/4 c each and the butter as well. it was still quite sweet and greasy. tasted good, but the greasy was overpowering.

Chicken and Gnocchi Soup
This was good, I'll probably make again. I thought it had too much celery. I also had to cook it a bit longer than directions said for veggies to get tender. The kids loved it though!
