About this Cook
I snow ski, team rope, and decorate cakes. Mom of two, ages 7 and 5. Grew up and still live in Northern CO where my family has a farm and feedlot which my husband manages. I had my own cake decorating business, but realized it took away too much time from my family. I am back to decorating for family and friends and enjoying every moment of this creative outlet.
My favorite things to cook
Anything that amazes my family and friends. I love to get them to try new things- things that they always though they would hate, but end up really enjoying.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom and I cook dinner together several times a week- we try new dishes all the time, rely on many old favorites, but the tradition is that we cook, and eat, as an extended family.
My cooking triumphs
I bake all of my cakes, fillings and icings from scratch. I have appeared as an assistant, twice, on both TLC's Ultimate Cake Off two times, and Food Network's Challenge.
My cooking tragedies
I tend to not follow any recipe to a "T"- and while I have great cooking instincts, every now and again that results in a flop ;)

Anise Biscotti
This is an excellent biscotti recipe. Nice crumb, great texture! I used Kahlua, fresh hazelnuts and hazelnut extract in one recipe. Another anise seeds and Pernod (didn't have anise extract on hand) Might try orange zest with white chocolate chips in another. Thank you for this recipe!

Pork Chops with Delicious Gravy
Like another reviewer, I too glazed the pan after the initial browning of the chops. I used Vermouth, white wine would be another good alternative. I seasoned the flour with salt, pepper and poultry seasoning. The final presentation was garnished with a generous sprinkling of fresh parsley- it was a hit with the entire family! Thanks for this "keeper!"

Twice Baked Sweet Potatoes with Ricotta Cheese
An excellent recipe! I was suprised by the richness of flavor and silky texutre that the ricotta lended to the potatoes without the addition of butter or oil. Great flavors, great recipe. Thanks!
