About this Cook
I am mom to three beautiful little girls and wife to a soldier in the United States Army.
My favorite things to cook
I like to cook old-fashioned family family favorites like chicken and noodles. These are not necessarily "homestyle" or "southern." The kind of recipes you find when you look through your grandmother's recipe box. I also love making dessert of any kind. Chocolatey, fruity, pastry, anything. I love making sweets--especially for company!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Although my mom was a great cook, she wasn't much of a traditionalist. I began a tradition last year of making cookies and candies at Christmas and taking them to people in my neighborhood.
My cooking triumphs
Peanutbutter cookies for my husband that beat his grandma's recipe. Spaghetti and meatballs (from scratch) that, according to my mom (again, a great cook) were better than the Olive Garden's. I have a recipe for brownies that can't be beat and I'm pretty proud of my meatloaf too.
My cooking tragedies
I tried a "Thai" version of spaghetti noodles that included peanut butter. They were just awful! I've been working on making a good angel food cake for quite some time but so far I haven't had much luck. I end up throwing it away and then I have a big bowl of yolks and nothing to show for it!

Donut Muffins
Yum!! Love these little things. I used buttermilk but I wasn't brave enough to deviate from the recipe totally by switching out baking powder for baking soda so I did 1/2 a tsp of each and they came out perfect.

Cocoa Banana Bars
The kids give their thumbs up! The pan got finished off before I could get a picture to post but they turned out great. I followed the recipe to the letter, using 3 pretty good sized bananas, per the reviews. Great recipe.

Light and Creamy Brown Sugar and Chocolate Frosting
I kept seeing this recipe when I did searches for the ingredients I had on hand but I was sooooo hesitant to try it! I've never made frosting with brown sugar before. I finally went for it--and I am SO glad I did! This was amazing! It makes a little tiny amount--just right for an 8x8 size cake. I paired this with "my mom's chocolate cake" from this site. A great combination.
