It's just me
About this Cook
I am a working mom trying to minimize my monetary output by making things myself. I also enjoy the trill of creating something out of odds and ends and designing foods and sewing or knitting projects from scratch. I love canning too!
My favorite things to cook
I'm really on a yogurt kick lately. I truly love baking and finding quick and simple meal ideas for my family.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love my mother's family's tuna pasta salad recipe and her family's cole slaw recipe that have been handed down. I also love making my own pasta sauce.
My cooking triumphs
Home-made slow cooker greek yogurt is my most recent! Also, I real hit at holidays is my home-made cranberry/apple sauce with ginger.
My cooking tragedies
my daughter's first birthday cake...I wanted to do fondant but chickened out and the cream cheese frosting that I did use melted everywhere in the August heat/humidity. Ugh, this year I'm going for the gusto and I'm doing fondant!

Pumpkin Dip
The taste was really good but it was too sweet for my tastes.

Beer Biscuits
I made these with my husband's home brewed wit beer, they turned out a little dry and tasted like saltine crackers. I think they might be better if made with a lager or something a little maltier.
