About this Cook
Working mom always looking for quick & easy (yet nutritious) recipes to make on weeknights or weekends.
My favorite things to cook
Comfort food, desserts, anything quick & easy that my family will eat!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I usually make 7 different types of Christmas cookies - 4-5 traditional recipes with 2-3 new treats thrown in.
My cooking triumphs
I love entertaining and have a wonderful process for cooking Thanksgiving turkey that comes out great every time.
My cooking tragedies
Once I forgot to check mom's oven before preheating and unbeknownst to me she had Tuppeware stored in it. Wow that's a smell and a mess I'll never forget!

Slow Cooker Texas Pulled Pork
Nothing spectacular, but it used ingredients I already had on hand which is what I was looking for. It was still good, and my family loved it.

Caramel Frosting IV
WAY too thick. I would not make this without modifications unless you have a really tough cake that will stand up to a super stiff frosting. Taste was really good, I tripled the salt to make "salted caramel" which had a terrific flavor - but my cake couldn't stand up to the thickness of this frosting.

Jan's Chocolate Cake
Taste was mediocre but the consistency was terrible. It broke up into crumbs when I frosted it and was nothing but a nightmare. The only frosting I would recommend for this cake is whipped cream frosting - anything else and you'll have a messy pile of junk.
