About this Cook
I was a retail manager until 2 years ago when I decided to become a stay at home mom to my 3 kids. Since leaving the working world, I've been able to rediscover my love for cooking.
My favorite things to cook
I love cake decorating so I enjoy trying new cake & frosting recipes. I love doing desserts, especially elegant looking frozen desserts. I like to prepare "down home" style meals, along with the occasional "exotic" meal.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Our family loves to cook together.
My cooking triumphs
I prepared a gorgeous 4 tiered 50th anniversary cake with hand made sugar flowers which actually tasted as good as it looked!
My cooking tragedies
My mother hand copied all of her recipes for all 4 of her children. When I started trying out her recipes, I came to discover that she had often left out an item when copying. I couldn't figure out why things weren't turning out correctly, then discovered the problem when I was making cinnamon rolls & noticed there was no yeast listed in the ingredients! I joke that she intentionally left out ingredients so I would have to call her every time I cooked to double check the recipe. That's one way to make sure your kids stay in touch!

Awesome and Easy Creamy Corn Casserole
My husband and daughter really liked this, but both agreed with me that the texture is a little grainy. It might just be the brand of corn bread mix I used (Jiffy) so I'll try a different brand next time we try it. If you like corn, you'll like this dish.

Blueberry Pie
One of the easiest fruit pies I've ever made, so simple to throw together. I've had a problem finding a blueberry pie recipe that is not too tart, not too sweet & was thrilled with this one. The filling sets up perfectly. Followed the directions, but did turn down the temp pretty quickly as the crust would have been too dark otherwise. Next time I'll bake it at 375 instead. Perfect warmed up w/a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream!

Grandma's Green Bean Casserole
Served this yesterday & my family, who do not like traditional green bean casseroles, finished the whole batch! Even my daughter who hates sour cream went back for seconds, which is surprising since it does have an almost overwhelming sour cream flavor to it. Next time I make it I will cup back on the sour cream a bit. I followed the directions given with the exception of sauteeing the onions. Will definitely be making this again.
