About this Cook
I have been a full-time mom since 1993, and have learned to cook purely by research, making huge messes, and trial and disaster. I am also an artist, so everything that I do is held to extreme self-scrutiny. I am also a terrible insomniac, and will spend, literally, an entire day in the kitchen, making every detail of an upcoming family meal perfect, right down to the sauces and spreads. And I love the appreciation on my family member's faces when they take that first bite. Not something one often sees as a full-time mom... ;)
My favorite things to cook
Everything. The more complicated, the better! We almost never have the exact same thing twice. I read cookbooks, websites, reviews, and am always changing and adapting the foods that I create.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family gets together to make lefse every fall, in memory of my favorite grandmother. Lots and LOTS of lefse.

Glenn's Marinated Pork Shoulder
I just made this recipe with only one change to method: I marinated the roast overnight, then cooked it in my slow cooker on low for about seven hours, with broth added for the moisture. (Our roast was 5-6 pounds.) I just woke up, and it is almost beyond fork-tender and quite yummy! Thank you!

Provincial Tomatoes
These were very, very good! I used a bit of Greek seasoning, and I added a dash of freshly ground pepper blend. Also, for added quickness, just lightly sprayed them with olive oil cooking spray. For the crumbs, I used panko and just the smallest amount of crushed french fried onions. Will make again and again, trying different combinations of seasonings and cheeses. :)

Allspice Cream Cheese Frosting
This is an awesome frosting recipe for spice cakes! I used it on a banana spice cake also found on this site. I used an 8 oz block of cream cheese, and the result was a rich, creamy, slightly spiced frosting. Mmmm... I didn't even let my kids lick the bowl this time. It was MINE. :)
