About this Cook
I am a very busy stay at home mother of 4 wonderful kids, all going in different directions. I love to involve them in the dinner preparations or just fun cooking, ie. cookies, cakes, treats, or candies. I like to keep it as healthy as possible, and try to use fresh ingredients whenever possible.
My favorite things to cook
I love making desserts. They are always fun to involve the kids in, and I know they will be well received. We also really enjoy italian or mexican dishes.

Smooth Buttercream Frosting
This is the first time I've made frosting, and I think I did pretty well. This recipe was simple and easy and oh so delicious. I did end up adding a little more milk than called for, and I also added almond extract because I love it. I used butter flavored shortening and it turned out perfectly. Will definitely do this again, so much better than store-bought frosting.

Nanna's Banana Bread
This banana bread is SO wonderful, very moist and sweet. I doubled the amount of bananas but did everything else just as written. No one in my family likes nuts, so we went with the chocolate chips. I used the mini chocolate chips because they stay suspended in the batter better and you don't end up with just chocolate chips on the bottom. Will definitely be making again...and again.

Tasty Sesame Tilapia
My husband (who rarely cooks) made this for our family and they gobbled it up so quickly. My three year old had 3 helpings.
