About this Cook
Hi. I'm mother of 2, ages 16 and 7. I am originally from Calif. but have lived in Portland OR for 17 Recently I've taking up gardening and canning and I love to scrapbook.
My favorite things to cook
I really enjoy cooking everything, but I love to cook Mexican and Asian cuisine. And we love trying different BBQ recipes during the summer.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I was raised by my great grandparents and was taught traditional southern cooking and Italian. My grandmother was from Oklahoma and my grandfather was Italian. I love to make Pesto (which we all called "green gravy" and my grandmother passed down the best Peach Cobbler recipe.
My cooking triumphs
I've become an expert dessert maker. My family loves my cakes!
My cooking tragedies
My worst disaster lately was trying to cook chili in a pressure cooker. It burned horribly! Pan's been soaking for a week and I still can't get it clean!!

Raw Apple Pound Cake
Maybe I did something wrong, but I checked the recipe like 4 times, but this cake didn't stay together. It completely fell apart. And it was too sweet. Sorry!

Simple White Cake
Best cake recipe I've found yet! It was moist and fluffy. Others I've tried have always been very heavy. I just used 1 tablespoon of baking powder instead of specified amount. It was very good. Highly recommend this recipe!
