About this Cook
I love to bake and I really enjoy good food, so that is why I cook. I find that I don't always have enough time to cook with a 2 year old. :) Oh, and I just can't seem to follow a recipe to the letter, I have to make some changes.
My favorite things to cook
Golden mushroom chicken, cashew salad. Anything quick and tasty.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family bakes. Whenever we are together you can bet on a minimum of 5 kinds of cookies and bars.
My cooking triumphs
Mastering the art of baking wonderful homemade bread.
My cooking tragedies
Forgot the sugar in a loaf of orange cranberry bread. Yuck! (Luckily I tasted it before I served it to anyone.)

Curried Mustard Greens with Kidney Beans
This was my first time using mustard greens and I will never buy them again. (It was a mistake in the first place.) The greens are so bitter you can't eat the dish. The sauce and beans are good, so maybe another type of green would be better.

French Silk Chocolate Pie I
Excellent! Use a deep dish pie crust, make 1 1/2 recipes, use good quality dark choc and top with real whipped cream. I would recommend a stand mixer too!

Kettle Corn
Works great with a popcorn pan. You won't need as much oil. Add 1/4 tsp. salt immediately after popping & toss.
