About this Cook
I'm a 30 year old stay at home mommy (a.k.a. Domestic to two great kids and married for 5 years to a truly wonderful man. I love to read, scrapbook, quilt, and am an amateur photographer.
My favorite things to cook
I love pasta! I've also been expirimenting with Asian dishes lately as well.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We really don't have traditions. My mom never taught me to cook so I'm self taught. We do have a couple recipes that end up at every family gathering, cream cheese pie and now my egg rolls that I learned to make a couple years back.
My cooking triumphs
Learning to cook!! When I first moved in with my husband we lived off of top ramen and hamburger helper for about two years. When I had my daughter and lost my job all I did was sit in front of the food network (it was the only thing that kept her from and started trying new things I saw. Now my Dad is amazed at my culinary abilities and says that I put my mom to shame.
My cooking tragedies
Some of those early days in learning to cook were pretty The only thing I can't seem to master that is bugging me is my Grandmother's recipe for Sweedish Iron Cookies. She used to make them every Christmas and my mom never had the knack for it and it seems that I don't either. It saddens me because it's one of the really fond memories I have of my grandmother.

Quick Camping Pineapple Cakes
what a refreshing change from the standard s'more! The first time I tried it didn't go so well. After following the instructions they burned. So 10 minutes in the embers is just too much. A few minutes on the grate not directly over a flame works very well!!

Cheesy Campfire Potatoes
YUMMY! We don't go camping without this recipe! Only changes made were to add crumbled bacon and use a garlic/black pepper blend.
