About this Cook
I'm not really a cook, I just follow directions well.
My favorite things to cook
I like cooking new things so I spend a lot of time on this site!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Each December my in laws get together for a baking day. 6 hours later, we have covered three 8' tables with cookies and candies for holiday gifts. My only problem is convincing my husband to let me give some away!
My cooking triumphs
I received the highest compliment around. My dad told me I made the best lasagna he has ever tasted.!
My cooking tragedies
I tried to bake my first cake from scratch, chocolate cake with peanut butter frosting. I put the pans in the oven and told my husband to watch them while I jumped in the shower. He came running in about 10 minutes later. The mix had overflowed causing a big smokey mess in the oven. I was ready to call it quits but he scraped and salvaged the cakes. I tried a piece and it was definitely not worth the trouble! I'm sticking to my boxed cake mixes from here on out.

Broccoli Chicken Casserole II
I made a few changes. I used Fat Free Cream of Chicken, Low Fat mayo, and fat free cheese. The recipe was good but pretty salty. Next time I will use reduced sodium cream of chicken instead and just use two cans. Will also add an onion next time.

Triple Threat Fruit Smoothie
This is my favorite smoothie recipe! I remove the seeds from the kiwi to make it a little less seedy and use whatever yogurt I have handy.

Apple Pie by Grandma Ople
I added some cinnamon to the mix but otherwise left it the same. Wonderful pie!
