About this Cook
I am mother of two great kids. My daughter is 21 and a senior in college. My son is almost 16 and we are trying to get him to eat at least one new thing a week, lol. We are a BMX family, we travel most of the summer to local, regional and national BMX races. Both of my children swim on the local YMCA swim teams and my daughter swims also for high school. I own my own sign shop and have always loved doing art.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake and make comfort foods. I love trying new recipes, but I will warn you, I never make the recipe exactly the way it is listed. I have my own definate ideas of cooking. I love reading peoples reviews before making anything.
My favorite family cooking traditions
One of my favorite traditions growing up was just spending time in the kitchens of my mother and grandmother. I feel I am a good cook today, because I spent alot of time watching and helping great cooks. My mothers family was Hungarian, and my gradmother was Italian.
My cooking triumphs
I am always excited when people (especially my husband) love my cooking. As a prior wedding cake decorator, I loved making people happy with their wedding cake.
My cooking tragedies
The very first time I made Lasagna for my husband, I forgot to brown the hambuger before baking. He still ate it, is was good while hot, but once it sat, the fat began to show. He still will bring that up until this day, we all get a good laugh.

Amish Bread
I love this recipe! I is the best bread I ever made in my bread machine. So simple to make with simple ingredients. I did up the flour to 3 cups and the water is 1 cup + 2 Tablespoons. I put in my bread machine almost every night on the delayed cycle and we have fresh bread in the morning for sandwiches for lunch! I sent my machine for 1.5 lb loaf and med crust.

Venison Stew II
This was delicious!!! Followed the directions exactly except I added 3 beef bouillons...and only two onions...but to tell you the truth the onions cooked away to nothing. I did thicken at the end with flour. Meat melted in your mouth!! A definite keeper

Chicken Enchiladas II
These enchiladas have very good flavor. I did not fry my tortillas shells, I think I will brown them next time. I also didn't tuck in the ends, which would have made them easier to handle!! I will definately make again. (I used a rotesserie chicken from the grocery store)
