About this Cook
Stay at home mom with 2 children--ages 3 and 1 1/2. So needless to say anything I cook or bake is either after their bedtime or has to be easy and quick while I'm trying to keep one eyeball on them and another on what I'm doing in the kitchen.
My favorite things to cook
Sometimes the less I have to cook is my favorite so I'm working on/looking for crock pot recipes so I am not scrambling to make dinner at night.
My cooking triumphs
Pot roasts, roast chicken, pasta dishes. For desserts family and friends always request I make gooey bars. I'm pretty good at cupcakes/cakes as well
My cooking tragedies
Anything pork. Somehow it always comes out dry and tough. I'm almost to the point of giving up on it unless it's takeout!

Grandma's Eggless, Butterless, Milkless Cake
Wonderful! Who would EVER think -less cake was so tasty & moist! I did modify the recipe a bit based on previous reviews to the following: split the sugar between white and brown (1 cup each), 3 teaspoons of vanilla, and added 1/2 teaspoon of salt and 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon. Made cupcakes with the batter filling liners 2/3 full and bake for 15 min, let cool in muffin pan for 2 min then move to cooling rack.

Mean Woman Pasta
Prepared this the night before to let the tomatoes marinate then used it over brown rice and chicken the next night. Awesome! The flavors added a welcome flavor to rather bland brown rice and grilled chicken.
