About this Cook
I am a busy Mom of five wonderful children. I love to try new things and have lots of variety in our meals. I am a stay at home Mom and find that it is a miracle if I find anytime to stop between meals, babies, laundry, church and errands. So I go for quick but not processed....homemade.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake but am trying to keep our meals healthy. I love it when I find a great recipe and my children and husband love it.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My favorite is Christmas Eve we have a german meal. I also found a reciipe for great cinnamon rolls like the ones at the mall for Thanksgiving morning.
My cooking triumphs
Cheesecake...I made a cheesecake that did not crack the first time I made one.
My cooking tragedies
To tragic to mention here...

Zippy Summer Shrimp
Delicious! A perfect meal....zippy summer shrimp with brown rice and fresh green beans. I have five kiddos and they love this recipe. My son wants it for his Birthday meal. I did not use as much lemon as it calls for and added more garlic. Per the recipe's is zippy. I love it...but have used less red pepper flakes for the kiddos. Excellent, healthy recipe! :)
