the reason why I love to cook
About this Cook
Very close to my family, and final got married Oct 18th to an awsome guy!!!! NO!that is NOT him, its my lovable brother, who I adore!!! Work at a developmental center with the physically and mentally challenged adults. Love my job. Going to school part time to become a nurse.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook deserts and especially Sunday meals. There is something about a good Sunday meal that can make the whole week just start off on a good foot.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Cooking during the holidays. I love the planning and shopping for things and seeing it all come together. I especially love seeing my family enjoy a meal that I have cooked.
My cooking triumphs
Cooking for others, besides my family and seeing their enjoyment also
My cooking tragedies
Baking bread. I still can not get bread baking down consistantly... I might have a good batch one time. Then a really bad batch the next.

Absolutely Fabulous Greek/House Dressing
I loved this and am planning on using it for a rice salad that I make in the spring and summer. We had it over salads we had for dinner this week, but the wife(me) refrigerated it. Mistake! the oil and vinegar didn't have time to blend well enough and of course, my husband was the first to use it. His words " it is kind of tangy" Really? It should be with almost 2/3 cup of vinegar on your salad..I said later.. (I scaled the orignal recipe down to 12 servings) and it fits perfectly in a Good Seasons mix yourself bottle! I love this tangy zesty dressing. And I also love that I can add other ingredients if I want! What about some crumbled feta cheese or even some minced onion or garlic flakes next time? Yum..Yum thanks for a great recipe!

Molasses Sugar Cookies
OMG!!! These cookies are the best. I made them for my Christmas bags, and am now planning to make more because I keep going back for "just one more" The recipe makes a ton, and makes the whole house smell awesome while baking. VERY easy recipe. I didn't use shortening, but butter instead. Easy putting together, and the next day just scooped them out, rolled and in the oven. You will keep this recipe in your recipe box. A must!!!!

I don't think I will ever make another chocolate chip cookie recipe. This was the best. I am planning on making it for our christmas party. And I already am printing out the recipe cards, because I know people will be asking for it. They are the best!!! Mrs. Fields, I have your number!!!!
