About this Cook
I am a working mom with 2 kids and a husband that travels significantly. Love to bake and take things into work as my husband is ALWAYS on a diet.
My favorite things to cook
Baking is my favorite, and most of that goes to work. At home, concentrate on healthy and easy recipes. Seems everything is always a last minute push to the finish line.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My grandmother....cooked big and great!Always had the stove covered and would say..."I wish I had cooked something!"
My cooking triumphs
Anything my kids say was great...that isn't sugar based!
My cooking tragedies
Rushing to write a recipe card and changed a salt quantity. Made it to take for Thanksgiving dinner at my inlaws! It was horrible!

Apple Spice Cake
I made this for a coworkers birthday and everybody seemed to like it. Modified sugar to 1/2 cup brown, 1 1/2 white and butter to 1/2 cup butter, 1/2 cup applesauce, increased cinnamon & allspice to 2 teaspoons each. Baked in 9 x 13 pan for 40-45 minutes. Cooled and frosted with cream cheese frosting. Yummy, smelled delicious, very moist. Chop your apples very finely, or use a food processor. Thanks for a great recipe. Would make excellent muffins as the edges are the best!

Jamaica Cake
Super easy and perfectly yummy. My changes were half brown sugar/half white, reduced oil to one cup, I used three bananas (just because :0), added 1 1/2 tsp of cinnamon, and I topped it with cocounut prior to baking. Tent the cake after 30-40 minutes to prevent it getting too dark. This was perfect! No frosting or powdered sugar needed!

Dark Chocolate Cake II
OMG! This is the easiest, best chocolate cake you will ever make! One bowl! I followed the recipe exactly, except for: increase the cocoa to 1 cup, added 2 T sugar and modified the AP flour to 1 3/4 cup + 1/4 corn starch. Cooked mine in a bundt pan and used the Satiny Chocolate Glaze for a coworkers BD! Fabulous if I say so myself!
