About this Cook
I am 37 years old, married and mother to a wonderful preschooler and infant. They certainly do keep me busy. I work full time as a registered nurse and relish every second of free time that I have. Depending on the day I might just nuke something or make grilled cheese (or heck, make my husband get his own cold cereal and milk) or I might make something very exotic that it's taken me weeks to get the various ingredients. My husand and coworkers never know what to expect, and my husband has learned to never ask "Honey, what exactly is in this?"
My favorite things to cook
I love to make snacks and sweets. Not cakes and cookies, but different things, such as the Irish Potato Candy or a Mardi Gras King Cake.
My cooking triumphs
I made an amazing King Cake for Mardi Gras last year. And a fantastic doughnut bread pudding. And a killer cranberry sauce. Quite proud of all of them. And my husband swears I make the best gumbo that he has ever eaten.
My cooking tragedies
My secret ingredient in my chili is a handful of chocolate chips, so one evening while I was making meatloaf I decided to add chocolate chips to the meatloaf, well, needless to say it was awful! And then there was the time that I added dried cherries and vanilla to ground meat for hamburgers. Like I said, my husband has learned to not ask any more what the ingredients are to any dish.

Creamy Blueberry Pie
Very good! Made this for the first time for Thanksgiving. Was a hit! I couldn't find fresh blueberries to save my soul, so I used frozen. Thawed and drained them in a collander first so the pie wouldn't be too soupy. And I can't stand "cutting in" dough. Just a pet peeve of mine, so I used the food processor. Easy and good. Thanks for sharing!

Awesome Broccoli-Cheese Casserole
Just tried this at Thanksgiving. Got RAVE reviews! Although I DID change just a couple of things. I don't like frozen veggies, so I used fresh broccoli, but the store was almost out, so I used half fresh broccoli and the other half was fresh califlower. Also, I am pregnant and trying to get protien anywhere I can, since I'm not a big meat fan, so I used 2 eggs instead of 1. And I love onions so instead of 1/4 cup, I used a whole medium onion. And I also used 12 oz. of cheese instead of the 8 called for in the recipe. It was very good and very easy. Thank you for sharing.

Martha Washington Candies
Made these with a few changes. Added an extra cup of powdered sugar, and they didn't turn out too wet. Just right! Didn't want to get my hands dirty or have the heat of my hands affect the butter and make it runny, so I used a melon baller and dropped them on the wax paper. Turned out perfect little balls! Easy as pie! Quick too. Also dipped the first few of them completely in chocolate, but thought it was way too chocolaty...overpowering the rest of the candy. So, the remainder, about 80% of them only got the bottom half dipped in chocolate, then I drizzles a small amount on the top of the candies for decoration. Looked very pretty. I didn't think they took quite as long to make as everyone else did. Thank you for sharing this recipe with us Willi.
