About this Cook
Working mom with little time to cook but enjoy it on the weekends
My favorite things to cook
I like quick easy recipes for entertaining the masses. Everyone loves my homemade salsa and real corn tortilla chips. I also make a mean chili that really takes no time to put together.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Big Sunday Dinners with homemade mashed taters, real creamed corn, and chunky pot roast. We have "family night" every Sunday night and anyone can show up so we have big Sunday Dinners every Sunday for about 15 people on average.
My cooking tragedies
Anything to do with baking sweets is a tragedy for me. I just can't seem to get it right. I always burn the cookies.....

Best Bruschetta Ever
Made this with a splash of balsamic vinegar and it is perfection! My best advice? Make double or triple batches.... you will never have enough... it just disappears.

Sugar Cookie Icing
This truly is a perfect sugar cookie icing. Used recipe exactly as is and it was perfect! Hard on the outside, soft on the inside, shiny glossy. I have never decorated cookies before so I wasn't the best in terms of a steady hand, but I still think they came out looking pretty okay since the incing was so awesome.

Double Tomato Bruschetta
I didn't care for the taste but I am not a big balsalmic vinegar fan. My daughter on the other hand thought it was great and ate most of it herself. I'll continue my search for a better recipe though....
