About this Cook
There are a total of four children running around my house ages ranging from 8months to 9years. Needless to say eating 'gourmet' isn't always an option... not to mention I hadn't really had an interest in cooking until about two years ago. Before that my idea of home cooking was box dinner!! So I'm slowly learning and the more I do, the more I love!!!
My favorite things to cook
Family meals... when I have time to make a nice family dinner it's the best thing in the world.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I look forward to hosting my first family Christmas dinner this year, but outside of that the only tradition I always did was sugar cookies with the kiddos on halloween! So much fun:)
My cooking triumphs
I had no idea how to make a whole chicken, but I found a recipe I wanted to try and dug right in. At the same time I also threw a potato dish together and baked it in the oven the same time(I've never "winged" a dish before so I was nervous!) Everything turned out fabulous, I was so excited!!!
My cooking tragedies
I made red velvet cake for the first time, and it was a disaster! I left the two cakes in a smidge too long so I burned the edges, then I couldn't wait to put the home made frosting on (someone please tell me why you let them cool first-oh wait-I know now!!) and the frosting melted everywhere; it ended up looking like a big lava cake:( still tasted all right though! lol.

German Baby
Had this in Washington at a restaurant, couldn't find in Michigan... until I found this recipe!! I think adding a little lemon to the finished product is fabulous! New family favorite!!!!

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup
Phenominal!!! Going to take into a cook off at work, but the family loved it before-hand! I added some carrots to the recipe, but other than that made exactly as directed and it was beautiful!
