About this Cook
I'm happily married since November 2009. I was diagnosed with endometrial cancer 2 days after our wedding, had surgery after our honeymoon,and now am in recovery. I enjoy reading and interior design. We love to travel and take cruises. We have 4 "fur children", 2 cats and 2 dogs.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake most of all, and I'm always trying new recipes. My husband planted a huge garden this year, and I'm trying to incorporate all the produce into recipes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Homemade shortbread cookies for Christmas; anything my mom bakes, but especially her streusel-topped apple pie and her chocolate cake. I have the cookie jar from my childhood and plan to keep it filled in my new house!
My cooking triumphs
My husband loves pretty much anything I cook!
My cooking tragedies
When I first started baking, I put paprika in an apple crisp instead of cinnamon...the jars were the same color.

Mini Cheesecakes
I use this recipe to make mini cheesecake Easter baskets. Tint coconut green with food coloring for the "grass", top with mini jelly beans (I use Jelly Belly) and use licorice ropes to make "handles".

Chocolate Almond Pumpkin Bread
I made this last week. My family loved it. It makes a large loaf, moist and tasty, and it keeps well. The only change I made was to omit the almonds. This one is a keeper!

Mango Blueberry Muffins With Coconut Streusel
I was looking for mango recipes because I wasn't familiar with using them. I tried these today, made them exactly as written and they are simply scrumptious! Highly recommend.
