About this Cook
I live with my husband and 5 month old son in Grand Ledge, Michigan. My hubby is a much better cook, but I try really hard! I am a MUCH better baker than he is though. :o) I would love to learn more about being creative in the kitchen.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake Christmas cookies and any other yummy dessert. As far as cooking, I LOVE comfort food. I can't live without my mac and cheese and yummy casseroles. I also love to experiment with chicken.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My grandma did her best to teach me how to cook when I was little, but I'm afraid it didn't take. I can follow a recipe, but have zero creativity. She always made it look so easy!! My favorite had to be our enormous Thanksgiving dinner. And my mom is locally famous for her Christmas cookies!
My cooking triumphs
None, haha! :o)
My cooking tragedies
Oh so many..

Pumpkin Pancakes
The flavor of the pancakes was delicious, but the batter was a bit too thick for my taste. It was difficult to get them to cook through without burning them, even on low heat.

Apple Crisp II
Hubby said this is the best apple crisp he has ever had. I followed the recipe exactly using apples I had on hand. Next time I will probably seek out some really tart baking apples because it was a bit sweet for me. Delicious recipe, thank you!! :o)

Penne and Vodka Sauce
I omitted the bacon and added some minced garlic, per my personal tastes. It didn't have a ton of flavor, but I take responsibility for that. :o)

Hard to believe, but many kids will be back in school at the end of the month. Get ready.
