About this Cook
I am an engineer, working full-time, who loves to cook new and interesting things. My husband and I were blessed with two wonderful children that are 4 years apart in age, but their birthday is only two days apart! I always joke that if nothing else, at least we are consistent :-) Cooking is a creative outlet for me, and the wonderful recipes on this website have provided ample opportunity for me to be a mad chef in the kitchen.
My favorite things to cook
I LOVE cooking interesting things that help the family enjoy the pending holidays, especially cute things for Halloween. I prefer to modify recipes based on feedback from people who take the time to provide a review, as it generally improves the overall outcome. I try to modify most recipes to reduce the fat and sugar content wherever possible, and it is a bonus when I find a recipe that allows me to successfully sneak veggies into my kids' diet!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My parents grew up in New England, so we always had a very formal Thanksgiving dinner...two types of dressing (one with oysters) and always rutabagas. My husband and kids hate the flavor of rutabagas, but I make them anyhow because I love wouldn't be Thanksgiving without the aroma of rutabagas blending with the scent of roast turkey...YUM!!!
My cooking triumphs
I was so proud of the first ice cream cake I made for my son's birthday...a beautiful cake I cooked in a cupcake mold, filled with coffee almond ice cream & drizzled with chocolate was spectacular looking & tasted even better!
My cooking tragedies
I do not have enough space here to summarize all the tragically failed attempts I've had when trying to make beef stew. I've made much more complicated things many times & had wonderful results; however, I have literally had to throw out multiple pots and spoons with some of the beef stew disasters I have created ( on the plus side, the stench & smoke helped to peel wallpaper I was having difficulty removing...hahaha!!!). I am cursed when it comes to that dish, but the suggestion of me making it for dinner is a guaranteed way to get my husband to offer to take the family out to eat....LOL!!!

Chocolate Chip Granola Cookies
Crunchy & awesomely easy to make. These are the type of cookies my family will eat, as no one likes the moist ones that fall apart. Delicious, flavorful & crunchy ....cannot imagine anyone not loving these cookies. Please try...they are foolproof, crunchy & delicious!!!

Exquisite Pizza Sauce
Such a wonderful, no fail pizza sauce! Didn't have anchovy paste, so omitted that, as well as omitting the crushed red pepper & cayenne. To compensate for the reduced "heat " in this revision, reduced honey to 1 TSP, and subbed extra oregano for marjoram. Mixed at room temperature and used on flattened Rhodes dinner rolls with string cheese to make mini "Mummy" pizzas. They were soooooo good....everyone enjoyed as part of our 2014 Halloween dinner delicious...try it, you will love it!

Pumpkin Spice Martini
Followed recipe, but it was bland and disappointing. Made another batch of six servings with half cup Kahlua to half cup Baileys, two cup pumpkin liqueur, 6 pinches cinnamon, 1 cup vodka plus one extra shot vodka....much better this way. Enjoy!
