About this Cook
I am a happily married stay-at-home mom with two delightful children. I love to volunteer at their schools. I'm into music, reading and working out at the health club.
My favorite things to cook
Gotta be cookies, now that I have my new kitchen and my pantry is right at my elbow, instead of 35 feet away in the laundry room. So it's good that I like to work out!
My favorite family cooking traditions
The date nut cake at Christmas time, having the children get involved in cooking at an early age, roasting turkey (love the aroma!) for holidays, Dad's hamburgers on Saturday nights.
My cooking triumphs
My main triumph is getting dinner on the table every night. We can't afford to eat out much, or even afford fast food. No one told me that one of the hardest things about being a parent was coming up with dinner ideas, night after night after night.

Lemon Glazed Cake
The one star is for the glaze. It was way too liquidy.

Good for You Greek Salad
An excellent salad, quickly put together. I recommend seeding the cucumber after peeling (scoop out the seeds with a spoon after cutting in half length-wise). Also, I used my immersible blender on the dressing, worked beautifully in keeping the dressing from separating!

To Die For Fettuccine Alfredo
Made it as written, divine!! Next time I'll persuade my 13 yo son (who made this) to add fresh garlic and hopefully mushrooms to the butter as it cooks.
