About this Cook
I am a stay at home mom and enjoy every second of it. I have recently been trying lots of new recipes and using my family as guinea pigs! My husband and I also love the outdoors and are avid hunters and fishermen. Family is really important to us and we all get together at least once a week for dinner.
My favorite things to cook
I am always in charge of desserts at our family gatherings. I usually get all of my new recepies from this website and they have all been great. I love to cook desserts with friuts, like cobblers. I also have a soft spot for pudding desserts. Pies are also a specilty of mine.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every year my sister, mom and I get together and bake Christmas cookies. We bring our special ingedients and mom furnishes the regulars like flour and sugar. It is so much fun to see what new recipes we have been able to find throughout the year and spendquality time in the kitchen together!
My cooking triumphs
My cooking triumph has probably been not being afraid to create new things. Sometimes you may not have all of the ingredients needed for a recipe or want to just kick it up a little. I have gained the courage to try new things and become familiar with enough ingredients to know what makes food taste good. Everyone gets tired of the same old same old, so my major triumph has been to gain the courage to go that extra step and turn everyday foods into a meal masterpieces!
My cooking tragedies
I have had a lot of mishaps in the kitchen, don't get me wrong...but the worse had to be one meal in particular that I will never forget. One night I had invited one of our friends over for dinner. When we got to the table, the chicken was not cooked all the way through, the mashed potatoes were lumpy and paste like. I tried to make a flour rue for the gravy, which seperated and I found myself stirring a pot of flour and oil. I know we had some kind of vegetable, but the rest of the meal was such a disaster I can't remember what it was. I told my husband and our friend that at least dessert would be good. Oh how wrong I was...I cut the pie and we all had a bite and I immediatly knew something was wrong. That is when my husband blurted out, "Did you forget the sugar?" Yes, yes I did. I had skipped over the recipe because our frind is allergic to cinnimon and also skipped the sugar. This is a meal that will not soon be forgotten.

Cake Mix Cookies IV
Holy cow! This recipe is so easy and the results are so good. I tried another variation of this recipe using milk chocolate cake mix and peanut butter chips. They were like giant reese cups! I can't waitto try other variations, I have so many ideas now!

Blackened Seasoning Mix
We were looking for a good blackened seasoning recipe and this was good. Not as spicy as we were looking for, but we made some kicked up dipping sauce to go with the meat we were putting this rub on. Next time, we will be adding a little more spice, but not salty as we have found wih other receipes.
