About this Cook
I'm married with three kids and I work in a Dr. office. I LOVE to cook but unfortunately due to our crazy schedule, I dont do it nearly as often as I'd like to anymore.
My favorite things to cook
I LOVE to bake. I would love to get good enought to open a bakery some day. I recently started cake decorating lessons. So who knows, maybe someday?
My favorite family cooking traditions
The Christmas cookie exchange with my mother in law, my sister, and my husband's aunt every year.
My cooking triumphs
Last fall I created my own pumpkin ice cream cake recipe and it was incredible. Everyone loved it!
My cooking tragedies
In my early years.......way too many to list!! LOL

Lemon Curd Tassies
I gave this three stars because I followed the recipe exactly and the filling would not thicken up no matter what I tried. I was so desperate at one point that I added some corn starch with a little water and they still wouldnt get thick. As far as flavor, they are good but too runny for me.

Fettuccini with Mushroom, Ham and Rose Sauce
Delicious recipe!! The only change I made was to add a smidgen of corn starch at the end to thicken the sauce a little more. Definitely a keeper!

Heavenly White Cake
I consider myself to be an above average baker and this was the first homemade white cake that I have ever tried. It was phenomenal!! I took some to school and some to work. People were asking me if I would take orders for Thanksgiving. Another asked me if I would consider doing a wedding cake, it was that good!! I made sure to follow the recipe exactly including the sifting and adjusted the milk to 1.5 cups. A must for everyone to try!!
