About this Cook
I am a mother to two small girls, so finding time to cook (anything) is tough most days! I love quick and easy recipes with simple ingredients. On special occasions I might pull out a fancy recipe, but generally I like ones that sort of come together with no muss and fuss. Thankfully, my husband and girls are not too picky of eaters, so they are usually eager to try (and critique) my experiments!
My favorite things to cook
Cookies, casseroles, crock-pot recipes, cakes...anything that's not to difficult or time consuming to put together!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I am planning on starting with my girls when they get just a bit older. My mom is a pretty good cook, but we never seemed to get to spend too much time together in the kitchen. I'm hoping to get to do more of that with my girls.
My cooking triumphs
A raspberry white chocolate cheesecake I made for my husband's 35th birthday. I got rave reviews from our friends. Oh, and the day I finally figured out how to make pancakes that didn't have the consistency of rubber, LOL!
My cooking tragedies
Nothing too major yet. Just the normal mistakes here and there...like most cooks!

Raspberry Lemon Muffins
I juiced one medium sized lemon and used all of the juice. I didn't add the lemon extract. I also used fresh raspberries (my 7 year old was happy to have the job of cutting each berry in half, that way we could spread the raspberry love). These were very tasty muffins! I think I'll bake the mix in a loaf pan next time, and top with a lemon glaze.

Cocktail Meatballs I
I made the meatballs per the recipe, but baked them instead of frying them. They came out moist and tender, no overwhelming flavor when they're plain. I've used this sauce on little smokies before, and it's always a hit with the adults. I thought it was very good with the meatballs.

Chef John's French Toast
This recipe was very easy to make, and I was happy with the texture of the end result. However, the allspice was a bit too much for my taste. I think I will keep the method, but tweak the spice ratio.
