Bread pudding II
About this Cook
I'm *gasp* 36 years old. I'm a nurse, an engineer, and most importantly, a mother of two: a seven year old son and a one year old daughter.
My favorite things to cook
Appetizers... I love appetizers and finger-foods for parties!! :)
My favorite family cooking traditions
Mom's italian Christmas lasagna. Oh, and her stuffed artichokes. I'd post the recipe, but I'm pretty sure that a distant uncle named Vito would pay me a visit if I did.
My cooking triumphs
I've learned to modify almost any recipe to accomodate the picky eating habits of second graders as well as reduce calorie and fat content for weight loss. (Mind you, I can only do one or the other...)
My cooking tragedies
Angel hair pasta. I can't explain it, but I cannot cook angel hair pasta to save my life...

Soft Oatmeal Cookies
Wonderful cookies!!! I made exactly as directed, though I accidently didn't use the quick cooking oats. I added 1/2 cup golden raisins and 1/2 cup dried cranberries (the kids' favorites). I let them chill overnight and baked them this morning. They are delicious!!! Thanks for a great recipe!!
