About this Cook
I am a mother of 2 grown children. I learned to cook starting when I was 12 as the youngest of 5 children - mostly to get out of doing dishes - I now love to cook!
My favorite things to cook
Crepes, salads, bbq
My favorite family cooking traditions
Ziti pasta for Christmas - Cinnamon Jello Salad for Thanksgiving - everyone brings one new dish!
My cooking triumphs
I decorate wedding cakes and I created a sour cream poppyseed cake that is awesome!
My cooking tragedies
My mothers first Lemon pie when she was 12, she made at my grandma's house and used salt instead of sugar (they were all in tins back then)! It looked great!

Cream Cheese Frosting II
I just made this recipe and used 1 8 oz pkg of cream cheese and 1 8 oz pkg of Mascarpone cheese, 1/4 cup of butter, 2 tsp of real vanilla and 3 cups of powdered sugar! It is perfect!

Onion Chicken in Balsamic Sauce
I loved this recipe, although I doubled everything for the sauce and had about 9 leg quarters. The sauce didn't thicken, but it was wonderful. I added quite a bit of fresh ground pepper and cooked it for 30-45 minutes.

Jamie's Cranberry Spinach Salad
I have used this recipe so many times I know it by heart! I have shared it with everyone I know and it is now a staple at our family gatherings! I have substituted the almonds with my own recipe for candied pecans and it is really awesome! Thanks for sharing!
