About this Cook
I'm a 35 year old single mom.I love to cook and bake.
My favorite things to cook
I really like to try new recipes. My specialty is cheesecake. Made one for a charity event about 8 years ago and I get orders for them all the time now! Desserts are my favorite to make because you can make them so beautiful! I do a lot of crockpot cooking too. I just love to cook!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Got a few great dessert recipes from my great grandmother that I still use and people still love.
My cooking triumphs
Homemade sourdough bread, anything homemade! Homemade is just amazing to some people. When you bring something made from scratch, people are just amazed at the end product. Most of the time, it's not more effort, it's just the feeling you get that your recipe was great and enjoyed by everyone.
My cooking tragedies
When I first started coooking, I'd burn a lot of things because I'd try to multi-task. So now, I just put a timer on and multi-task:)

Homemade Black Bean Veggie Burgers
Yum yum yum! Love this easy recipe! Used minced garlic in a jar and frozen peppers & onions and I used italian bread crumbs cause thats what I had on hand and these are awesome! Cooked a little longer than 20 min just because thats what I perfer, a stiffer patty. These are great and will be a staple from now on!

Raspberry and Almond Shortbread Thumbprints
This is a wonderful recipe! Make a batch this weekend and they were great! I used raspberry jam for the filling and because they are a soft cookie and I was putting on cookie trays I did not use the glaze on top because I was afraid it would make them softer. This will be used over and over again. Wonderful flavor and easy, easy for a cookie that looks like it took a long time! Thanks for a great recipe!

Pile it into a tomato half, load it into a wrap, or spread it on bread. Chicken salad does it all.

Broccoli salad makes a great side dish or a light main dish on a warm night.
