About this Cook
I'm a stay-at-home mom of three girls (age 18, 12 and 9); spend a lot of time volunteering at the school; hang out with my best girlfriends; love being asked to provide something yummy for events.
My favorite things to cook
Baking is my favorite, especially cookies and cupcakes. I also cook dinner almost every night, so I'm always looking for new recipes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love making our Christmas Eve buffet, and my girls and I also make cookies every Christmas season with my mother-in-law.
My cooking triumphs
Having every dish at dinner ready at the same time! Also, providing enough food to feed a lot of people at once.
My cooking tragedies
Not too many, but the worst was when I was baking a cake for my friend's husband's 40th party, and the cake was so big it kept falling apart & the icing sliding off. I was in tears, but it turned out OK.

Easiest Applesauce Cake
Made this in a Bundt pan and baked for about 50 minutes. Accidentally used 1/4 cup of water instead of 1/2, but it still came out amazing. I used a tablespoon of cinnamon and a 1/4 teaspoon of ground cloves; omitted the nutmeg because I'm not fond of it. I will made this many times.
