My Eager Taste Tester
About this Cook
A busy mom of 2 little kids, I think there is no better way to take care of your family than to see that they are well fed. That doesn't mean it has to be unhealthy baked sweets all the time. Sometimes that just means throwing together a salad or a sandwich.
My favorite things to cook
Ironically, desserts and healthy dishes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanksgiving is our big family holiday. Our ENTIRE family is always there on the same day. We always try to out do each other with all the additional junk foods we bring to nosh on while we cook the "real". Sweet rolls, candies, snack mixes, you name it... we eat it.
My cooking triumphs
Mastering the use of yeast.
My cooking tragedies
When I was maybe 16 I made a batch of chocolate chip cookies. Not good. Not only did they come out flat, I burnt most of them. The farm cats wouldn't even eat them, so my brothers used them as clay pigeons and shot them. They will NEVER let me live that down.

Vegan Pancakes
These are good, but they're a little thinner than what I like. I reduced the water to 1 cup and added 1/2 tsp of baking soda and 1 1/2 tsp vinegar to make them be tall and fluffy. Works like a charm! Either way, I'm just happy my 2 year old with food allergies can enjoy pancakes and they're good enough I don't have to make 2 kinds, we all just eat these!

Monster Cookies VI
Turned out great! Obviously if you don't use the ice cream scoop and bake for 15 minutes, you're going to have crunchy cookies, if not burnt. If you use a smaller utensil you bake them less. Heaping teaspoons full baked for 9 minutes, then my secret for soft cookies is smacking the bottom of the cookie sheet on the counter a couple times right when they come out of the oven. Thanks!

Fresh Southern Peach Cobbler
I think I died a little when I ate this. It was AMAZING. Next time I might double the peaches mixture or halve the topped. Update: I've made this again and again. Also worth noting is that this can be done in the crock pot. Takes about 3 hours or so. Awesome and I don't have to heat the whole house witht he oven!
