My babies and I
About this Cook
I am a devout christian and a true believer in the Lord, Jesus Christ. I am married to a wonderful man of God who loves his family and ministry dearly. My 2 children are the greatest gifts the Lord has bestowed upon me and I have the priviledge of homeschooling them. I am so blessed to be surrounded by such people who enrich my life daily.
My favorite things to cook
Dessert, definitely, my favorite meal of the day! =) Pasta dishes, anything with chicken and anything that can be prepared quickly and with little effort but flavorful.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We love to cook breakfast for dinner every now and then. The kids help set the table and pour the orange juice or coffee, while mom and dad are preparing peanut butter pancakes with honey butter or french toast made with challah bread and some turkey sausage on the side along with scrambled eggs. Yum!
My cooking triumphs
Mostly everything I try baking usually comes out good. I was really nervous about a lemon cheesecake I made recently and I was very proud of myself. It came out quite nicely thanks to the recipe I got from this site.
My cooking tragedies
When I first got married, I wasn't at all experienced with cooking. Need I say more?? (he-he) I used to over season everything and the food was so salty that it was almost inedible. Poor hubby, he ate it anyway so not to make me feel so bad. We had to guzzle down lots of water afterward. He says I've come a long way from then. Thankfully!!

Gail's Raisin Cake
WOW!! This is an amazing cake! I was reading through the bible and realized that the food "raisin cake" was mentioned and eaten alot as part of the hebrew tradition. So I was inspired to look for a "raisin cake" recipe. Though I'm sure this is not a traditional hebrew recipe, it sure is delectable!! As another reviewer did, I also made mine in a bundt pan. Incredibly moist, just enough sweetness to it and so very easy to make. Thanks for sharing. I will be making this often.

Beef Fajita Marinade
This was wonderful!! I didn't have tequila, so I skipped that and I also didn't have the cilantro, so i just used 1 tbls. puerto rican sofrito which I had on hand. I used chicken instead of steak and the fajitas were great!! I'll make this marinade for fajitas over and over again. Thanks for sharing.
