About this Cook
I have been married for three years. When both my husband and I were working, we ate out nearly every day of the week. Since I have quit my job and started my new role as a stay at home wife, we have tightened the purse strings. In turn, I have begun cooking more and am always on the lookout for new recipes! I love trying new things and so does my husband.
My favorite things to cook
I love casseroles! I know they are not the healthiest foods, but they are so delicious! I try to substitute healthier, lower calorie options where I can. Sometimes it works out, sometimes it doesn't.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My favorite thing is baking at the holidays. I enjoy getting together with family and friends and the fellowship that ensues and the wonderful food that results!
My cooking triumphs
Learning to cook! And I always love it when my husband makes enjoyment noises as he is eating. This lets me know that I have succeeded.
My cooking tragedies
I don't really have any tragedies to mention. Any time you overcook something or leave out an important ingredient, it is a disappointment, but not a tragedy. Life goes on and the pizza man is only a phone call away:)

Irish Cream Truffle Fudge
I absolutely love this recipe! It is pretty easy to make and everyone loves it! I have made it for the last two years at Christmas and get requests for it all the time. The Irish Cream gives it a kick, but is not overwhelming. My nephews and nieces eat it up:)
