About this Cook
I'm a homemaker and I run a daycare out of my home. I'm always looking for new ways to cook old family favourites and great things to make with the kids!
My favorite things to cook
I love to make breads and to bake cookies, cakes and casseroles.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family doesn't have many people in it that can cook things that are anything more then barely edible! lol. Lucky for me that makes me a cooking expert in my family!
My cooking triumphs
The first time I made meringue drops and they weren't mushy inside I was sooo excited!
My cooking tragedies
The first time I tried to bake a chocolate cake. I was 8 yrs old and I mixed up baking soda and baking powder! The cake was like a brick! lol

Homemade Fresh Pumpkin Pie
Turned out great....although the texture was a little more dense then I like...although in all fairness, I am not the pumpkin pie fan in the house, my huby is and he thought it was great! Upped the amount of each of the spices by just a pinch, since we like our pumpkin pie a little spicier and added a pinch of black pepper(I ALWAYS do with pumpkin pie)...definitely make this again!

Quick and Almost-Professional Buttercream Icing
Made this with a homemade strawberry cake recipe and it was really good. One of the better recipes I have found for this type of icing! :)

Strawberry Cake from Scratch
Tried this recipe out without making any changes. It tasted sooo good, but was a little sweet. Next time I think I'll omit a bit of the sugar. I used a homemade buttercream icing with it and look forward to making it in the summertime. I think it would be lovely served plain, with fresh strawberries and whipped cream as a new twist on strawberry shortcake!
