About this Cook
I love to cook. I spend a lot of time trying new recipes for my husband and two children. I work outside the home part time as a RN in our local OB dept.
My favorite things to cook
Desserts are my favorites to cook but with trying to watch our diet almost constantly I find it interesting to modify recipes to be lower fat and healthier.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love making christmas cookies. My extended family, friends and neighbors all get excited when I show up at their doors with huge platters of several types of cookies. I also have a tradition of making bread for people for special occasions like a new baby or new home. I've tried many new bread recipes this way, I make one loaf to eat for us and one to give away!

Crusty Potato Bread
I use this recipe in my breadmaker and then bake it in the oven. I use the ingredients as listed and it turns out great. I make it on the dough setting and then pat the dough into a square and then fold in the sides and then the ends, put in a sprayed pan, cut the top down the center with a knife and bake off at 350 for 30 minutes

Anna's Chocolate Chip Cookies
Good. Chewy. Easy. I use half milk and half bittersweet choco chips. I also tend to under cook them so they stay soft!

Chef John's Buttermilk Biscuits
Made these with stew. Followed exactly. We didn't quite get 12 biscuits but that's okay. Very yummy and fairly easy. Will make again.
