happy birthday!
About this Cook
I am a wife and mother of one child. He is 2 1/2 years old. I have a part-time job as a librarian, and I love being surrounded by books at my job. For fun, I love to play with my son at the sprinkler park and go out with my girlfriends!
My favorite things to cook
Mmm. I love to cook desserts because they are simple and look so impressive. I love cooking new foods so I am always looking for new recipes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family has more eating traditions than cooking ones. One of my first foods was hummus, middle-eastern bean dip. To this day, it is one of my favorite foods. I recently made a successful batch with a recipe off this site.
My cooking triumphs
My older brother taught me to make homemade spaghetti sauce when I was in highschool. It took all day. I invited some friends over and served them all chicken parmesan with spaghetti, all using my sauce. I still remember how to make it from scratch.
My cooking tragedies
My husband's family is German and they make these great beerocks. I had a recipe from my mother-in-law. It called for a couple pounds ground beef, an onion, some shredded cabbage, and crescent rolls. I bought a couple cans. I got it all ready and proceeded to roll my filling in the rolls. Well, I had a lot of filling! I bought 6 cans of crescent rolls. We had beerocks everywhere, and they were not very good. My dear husband at all of them.

Easy Lasagna II
I will never boil lasagne noodles again! I made this with a few changes and it turned out wonderful. I used quite a bit more sauce, probably 58oz or so. I like my lasagne saucy. I used ricotta instead of cottage cheese, and a little extra mozarella. About the liquid, it depends on the sauce you use. If it's watery sauce like Ragu brand, you probably don't need extra water. But if it's pretty thick like Prego, you should add some extra water. Thanks for the great recipe; it was wonderful!!

Dark Chocolate Cake I
This is a great recipe! I just wanted to put a review up because I baked this cake at high altitude, about 6000 ft above sea level. I added 4 T water and 2 T flour. I used only 1 3/4 t baking soda, a scant 1/2 t baking powder, and only 2 cups of sugar. Lastly, I used 5 eggs. Everything else I left the same. It turned out fantastic!! It wasn't too dense or anything; rich and sweet and perfect!
