My family and I
About this Cook
I am a SAHM to two boys, 3 and 7, and a baby girl. I love spending time with family, shopping, feeding my family good healthy food, working out, exploring, and serving my Lord Jesus!
My favorite things to cook
Chocolate anything! I do try to focus on making yummy and healthy recipes that my kids will like.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We don't really have any traditions. Though my family always put peanut butter and syrup on pancakes and now when I make pancakes for my kids they got to have peanut butter too!
My cooking triumphs
First time I make a 'real' meal. I made garlic parmesian chicken and garlic mashed potatoes and it turned out delicious.
My cooking tragedies
I've had a lot and will continue to, as I am not the world's best cook (but I'm learning!) one stands out...Making banana bread before I had a hand mixer. My husband described it as having 'nasty, slimy' chunks of banana.

Caroline's Chocolate Fudge Frosting
This is probably the best chocolate frosting I have made (I've made a lot!) Very close in consistency to the store-bought stuff, but much better taste and much healthier. I did add in more powdered sugar, about a couple teaspoons of cocoa powder and a bit less milk than the recipe called for. My picky and honest husband said is was great! This is my new go-to frosting.

Sunday Brunch Casserole
I baked my bacon in the oven in my large stone ware pan at 450 degrees and then poured the prepared mix right into the pan(after crumbling the bacon). I subbed asparagus for the onion (my husband hates them). I also just added a splash of half and half instead of the milk (it was too watery last time). I also added garlic and onion powder. Very good and made the house smell wonderful.

Janet's Rich Banana Bread
I mashed my bananas and used half whole wheat flour. I doubled the recipe (lots of bananas to use up!) and made a loaf plus chocolate chip muffins. I have tried many banana bread recipes but this was by far the best. Wonderful banana taste and rich texture. So good the muffins didn't even need the chocolate chips. This is my new go-to recipe.
