About this Cook
I am a stay-at-home mommy with two wonderful daughters. Being in the kitchen is the most relaxing place for me.
My favorite things to cook
Chicken chili, marinara sauce, roasted veggies. Anything that is healthful and pleases my family's appetite.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Baking with my eldest daughter for holidays and special occasions. I hope our littlest one joins in the fun when she's old enough!
My cooking triumphs
The other day I made applesauce in the crockpot. My 7 year old said "Mom, this is soooo good that you should work in a grocrey store, and sell bottles of this!" My husband agreed. I know applesauce is easy to make, but the joy it brought to the two of them was the BEST reward!
My cooking tragedies
Lol...the time I put too much nutmeg in my Christmas cheesy potatoes. A dish large enough for 18 people was left soley for me...but I totally loved it!

Black Forest Cake I
Myself, along with the wonderful 5 year old I babysit, like to make goodies on Thursday afternoons while her 2 year old sister and my 1 year old daughter take their naps. She wanted "chocolate cake with cherries" this week, so I found this recipe. To save time, I made the cake and cherry filling last night, and today she helped me make the whipped topping-and gave her input on how to decorate it (looks pretty good, if I do say so myself). The only issue I had was, like other reviewers mentioned, the cake seemed dry. I made a simple syrup and brushed some onto the three layers (not the crumble layer, as it wouldn't crumble). We are waiting for my 7 year old daughter, and her 7 year old brother to get out of school before we "dig in". Hope it tastes as good as it looks!
