I let others cook sometimes, too!
About this Cook
I don't like to cook--I much prefer to bake. However, I can cook, so if my husband (who is an awesome cook) decides to quit on me, I could get by without pizza delivery every night! We have four children, and we both work full time. We're all about quick, simple, and healthy!
My favorite things to cook
I took a cake decorating class a couple years ago, so I love to bake and decorate cakes. I also like to make cookies, and other sweet treats!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I used to spend December 23rd overnight and my grandmother's house every year since I was about 6 years old until I was married and I would help her prepare the Christmas dinner and desserts.
My cooking triumphs
This year (2012), I made a New Year's Resolution to make a new recipie every week. So far I've been pretty successful, and we've added new things to our family menu. My inspration came from the movie "Julie and Julia," and this site helped out a lot!
My cooking tragedies
This would be a good place to document my bloopers, but I haven't had any worth mentioning....baking cookies that came out as flat as the pan they were baked on is about it...I'll be sure to post if something good comes along! : )

Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies
These are cakey cookies--which are very good, but I was glad to have the heads-up! I also used 3/4c. sugar and substituted semi-sweet chocolate chips for peanut butter and chocolate chips. Very yummy! My kids keep coming back for more. A nice alternative to banana bread when you have ripe bananas!!!
