My boys & me!
About this Cook
I'm the Mom of 2 great boys (6 and 2). My Husband is an ex-Marine and I'm so proud of him! We live in a very small town where everybody knows everybody! Baking is my passion and I would love to do it for a living someday.
My favorite things to cook
I love to make anything with chocolate. Baking in Colorado is tricky, My boys love eskimo cookies and muddy buddies. Man, are those hard to do;) Cookies and brownies are my "specialty".
My favorite family cooking traditions
Breakfast every weekend! My Dad is the best at breakfast! When I was little my Mom taught me how to cook, now I call her all the time for tips. She can spruce up a meal like nobody's business!
My cooking triumphs
Pan au Chocolate (chocolate filled crossants)....YUM!!! It's simple, but time consuming. If you have ALL day with nothing to do then this is the perfect recipe. It was so much fun though! My mom and I have almond toffee down and is requested every Christmas. My sister Melissa and I make awesome oatmeal cream pies!
My cooking tragedies
Oh, there are so many!! I've burned more things than I care to think about. I've mis-read a lot of recipes too! Once I put a 1/2 tablespoon of cocoa powder instead of 1/2 cup, to brownies! I've had french bread dough go horribly bad, but I still don't know what went wrong! I could go on, but that's enough for me!!

Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie
AMAZING!!! I had to alter the recipe a bit for high altitude, (above 8,000 feet) and they came out perfect! Thanks so much!

Cream Cheese Pound Cake III
OMG!!! This was beyond yummy! Everyone loved this cake! I added a tsp. each of almond and coconut extract in addition to the vanilla. I also topped it with a lemon/coconut glaze (1 cup powdered sugar, 3Tbl lemon juice, 1 tsp coconut and vanilla extract) YUM!!!! This was also super easy. I followed the advise of others and let the butter, cream cheese and eggs get to room temp.. It was very rich and....well just plain awesome! Thanks for such a great recipe!

Stuffed Strawberries
I made these for a potluck. They were a huge hit. I made 3 dozen & they were gone in less than 30 minutes! Oh and there were less than 15 people there! They were also super quick and easy! I didn't have the orange stuff so I used homemade vanilla (YUM)! Thanks so much!
