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.

Alfredo Sauce
My husband is a huge fan of Olive Garden's alfredo sauce. This recipe is really close and I've made it many times. I use half and half instead of cream and add some regular powdered parmesian to thicken it up. I also double the garlic and throw it in with the melting butter. To save time, I use freeze-dried parsley. I double the recipe for extra sauce to spoon over chicken and broccoli. So nummy!

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.
