About this Cook
I'm a special education teacher and my husband and I both love to cook. We have a two year old daughter who loves to try new foods that cook!
My favorite things to cook
I love to entertain- I'll cook for people any chance I get. I love making stuffed mushrooms, pasta dishes, pizza, enchiladas and salsa. I love experimenting with new recipes. I'm also known for my cookies...
My favorite family cooking traditions
My grandmother loved food and was always looking forward to what to cook next. My mom always feed lots of people at her busy household and is a master of coming up with a full meal even when the cupboards seem empty!
My cooking triumphs
I make cookies for the county fair cookout every year and people go to all kinds of lengths to hoard them!
My cooking tragedies
A few times I have had to many irons in the fire quite literally and scorched some things like garlic toasts and a few side dishes... I'm really good disarming the screaming smoke detector in just a few seconds!

Sopapilla Cheesecake Dessert
Wow I made this to use up leftover cream cheese and crescent rolls from christmas and boy am I glad I did! It was AWESOME! I left out the almonds since I didn't have any on hand. I served it warm and drizzled with honey on it and everyone raved about how wonderful it was- no leftovers!

Vanilla and Chocolate Delight
This is my standby quick and easy dessert. I have even started making it with Splenda rather than powdered sugar, SF puddings and lite whipped topping since my brother-in-law is diabetic and I figured the rest of us could probably stand to miss out on a bit of sugar. I've kept the changes a secret though and my family gobbles it up as usual with nothing but praise!
