About this Cook
I am a school teacher in California with two grown children. I used to stick to the quick and easy dishes when I was raising a family, but now I have more time and my taste buds have grown more complex.
My favorite things to cook
I like to experiment with the recipes on this site. Baking is probably my area of expertise. I make a mean Raspberry white chocolate cheesecake and a pretty good creme brulee.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I come a family of bakers and watch out when we get together for the holidays. I have just started a new tradition in my family and that is a X-mas cookie exchange.
My cooking triumphs
cheesecake, creme brulee, brownies, biscotti, spahgetti, manicotti, tacos, enchiladas.
My cooking tragedies
rosemary chicken, my family said it tasted like weeds, not herbs.

To Die For Fettuccini Alfredo
Extremely runny, cut cream in half and double cheese as other reviews have advised.

Slow-Cooker Corned Beef and Cabbage
So I made this for our traditional Irish dinner and I cook corned beef every year and almost always in my experience it's tough and chewy, since I like the leaner flat cut. I bought a round roast this time which had very little fat, so I was concerned about the toughness; but it was not all tough. The only alterations I made was I put the whole bottle of beer in and Becks was all I had and it seemed to add a nice flavor; I also added a little beef broth. I put the veggies on top and left some of my red potatoes whole and halved the rest to prevent too much break up. I cooked for exactly nine hours and it was delicious; my husband never gets seconds of corned beef, but he did this time. One caveat, corned beef needs to be sliced against the grain and I like mine thinly sliced. Fabulous recipe and a keeper in my house!

Maple Pumpkin Cheesecake
I make this every year for Halloween and then I lost my recipe, which I found in a little commercial recipe book, . I am glad to have found it on here. It usually makes a couple of cheesecakes.
