About this Cook
Just a person who loves to bake, cook and create new masterpieces eveyday. The kitchen is like therapy to me!
My favorite things to cook
DESSERTS..DESSERTS...DESSERTS!! Can you tell I love my desserts. Cookies, cakes, pies, cream puffs..all from scratch and these are my specialties. Second runners up would be chicken dishes, cream sauces, italian pasta dishes, and anything that has to do with a Thanksgiving feast.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every Thanksgiving for years now- my father comes over bright and early in the morning to stuff the turkey and make all the fixings. I learned years ago what to do myself..but it wouldn't be the same without him here guiding me and helping me. Together we create a 10 course Thanksgiving feast for our entire family.
My cooking triumphs
I would have to say that cookies are my calling in life. Every time someone has a cookie of mine- they rant and rave and ask for a batch of their own. The down side is I can never ever show up at a function without cookies-I would be killed. I put my heart into whatever I make and when I hear all the rave reviews when it's eaten- I just love it!
My cooking tragedies
In all my years of cooking-my husband still makes reference back to a chicken teriyaki I completely messed up in my early days of cooking. I don't know what I did but it didn't taste pretty. Other than that I have had a good knack at fixing a dish gone bad.

Georgia Peach Homemade Ice Cream
I have been dying to make homemade peach ice cream for years! So glad I went with this recipe. Absolutely delicious. I did purée most of the peaches and left a few small chunks. Wish I puréed all. Didn't like the texture of the chunks. First taste out of the maker...I was worries it wasn't sweet enough. But after freezing it for was perfection.

Dirt Cake II
Made this several times. 4 stars only because 1 cup conf sugar is waaaay to much. 1/2 would be much better. Only change I made was I used fresh whipped cream opposed to cool whip ( 1 1/2 heavy cream, 1/4 conf sugar and squirt vanilla whipped for 4 minutes). And a bit more milk then called for. Pudding was too thick for my preference. Otherwise fun and awesome recipe.

Hasselback Potatoes
**5 stars for the idea and concept. I would never had thought to do this with potatoes. They were a nice twist on a potatoe side dish. I did sprinkle the tops with some of my fav spices(paprika, garlic powder, salt and pepper)for added flavor. I even prob used more butter than specified. Will make again and next time will sprinkle cheddar cheese on top for the last 10min of baking instead of romano. My kids love cheese potatoes and this would work great with this recipe.
