About this Cook
Hi there! My name is Kelly, and I live in Florida. I'm a stay-at-home mom of two young boys and a (late-in-life) college student. My major is Culinary Management. I LOVE to cook and bake and I hope to have my degree soon! My ultimate dream would be to own a bakery. Anyway, my husband and I have been together for 7 years and he's my best friend. I guess that's everything that strangers really want to know about someone, so...hope you enjoyed it! :D As for the cooking side of me, I'm okay. My mother never cooked when I was a child, and sit-down dinners were important to me when I started my own family, so I taught myself. I've been doing it about 5 years now and am getting better all the time. I'll make just about anything, but I am sticking to healthier/low-cal stuff, as I am on a strict diet (I've lost 50 lbs in under a year!). My husband and kids, however...well, that's another story. :)
My favorite things to cook
I like baking more than cooking, so my FAVORITE things to make are cakes, cookies, and danishes. But I also really enjoy making non-meat dishes, like casserole's and such. My husband does all the grilling (which we do a lot of) and loves it!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every Halloween, I bake orange and black cupcakes with "ghosts" or "headstones" on top (frosted and decorated half-pieces of Nutter Butters) and every Christmas, I bake those yummy peanut butter cookies with a Hershey Kiss in the middle.
My cooking triumphs
Hubby says everything I make is a triumph. :) We'll see...
My cooking tragedies
I once ruined a baked potato. ...Yeah...

White Cheese Chicken Lasagna
I made this exactly as it was called for and I absolutely LOVED it! My husband and I thought the taste was just so fresh and unique and just spectacular, really. I have zero complaints. Outstanding!

Pumpkin Brownies
These were superb! I didn't get the marbling effect, but I think that was my fault with the layering. Also, the ground cloves were a little too much for me, so the second time I made these, I cut them in half and it was soooooooo good. Also, make sure to COMPLETELY cool before eating--that makes them so much more moist. Anyway, 5 stars, easily!
