About this Cook
I'm a stay-at-home mom to 4 kids ages 1 to 9. My husband and I have been married for 11 years. I love to cook. I'm horrible at baking.
My favorite things to cook
I love to try different kinds of soups and salads. My favorite thing to cook is Italian, Mexican, or Mediterranean fare.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My daughter is only 9, but I'm already involving her in meal planning and preparing. It's something that we both enjoy to do together, and makes us feel special, as we are the only females in our large family!
My cooking triumphs
I recently prepared an authentic Mediterranean 3 course meal that my family loved!
My cooking tragedies
Anytime I try to bake something other than pumpkin bread, it is tragic indeed!

Boston Cream Pie I
I used a yellow cake mix, but made the custard filling and the frosting per directions in recipe and it was wonderful! Next time, I'll double up on the custard and the frosting or just make the cake layers thinner, but this cake tasted just what I was craving. I will be making this recipe again!

Chicken Cordon Bleu I
Very easy recipe, and my husband like it. Next time I'll add more cheese, as we couldn't really taste any cheese. I'll also try baking it a little lower temp for longer, as the chicken was very dry.
