About this Cook
I've always enjoyed baking and I can still remember whipping up lots of Christmas cookies with my mom when I was a kid. However, having two small children has motivated me (or required me) to cook healthy meals on a daily basis. I'm always in search of the easiest meal to become part of our rotation and have relied on a slow cooker to make my life easier, as well. But I love creating a yummy dessert...especially cookies.
My favorite things to cook
Anything Italian: Sausage, peppers and onions, eggplant parmigiana, chicken cutlets, my sauce (although my meatballs are nothing like my mom's). I also love to make Creamy Butternut Squash Soup and Veggie Soup with Orzo.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Two words: Christmas cookies. Last year I even tried Struffoli, or honey balls, like my aunt used to make...not quite the same.
My cooking triumphs
Spaghetti with sauce and my hot sausage stuffed mushrooms. Those have to be the top Two. My husband loves my chocolate chip cookies and my brother loves my viennese cookies with hershey kisses in the middle.
My cooking tragedies
I get so disappointed when I'm excited about trying a new recipe and it turns out horrible. Let's see...there's the stringy pot roast...I'll think of more.

Mrs. Fields Cookie Recipe II
These were a huge hit for Valentine's day- fabulous cookie. Crisp on the outside and chewy on the inside when baked for 9 minutes. I used about 1 Tbs per cookie and it made 119 cookies. Took a long time- I bake one tray at a time- but completely worth the end result. Used a blender for the oatmeal and it worked out fine. You will not be disappointed, but Mom's Chocolate Chip Cookies is still our family favorite.

Amazing Chicken
I have to say, for the minimal ingredients and speedy amount of time it took to throw this together, it's a true keeper. I added parmesan cheese and garlic powder to the breadcrumbs and baked 30 minutes. Thanks for a great recipe.

Very Chocolate Ice Cream
This is the first recipe I've tried with my new ice cream maker and it turned out delicious!!!!! It was soft-serve consistency after churning for 25 minutes and after 3 hours in the freezer, it is the consistency of store bought. Wow. That's all I can say, is WOW. I followed the recipe exactly as written except I cooled the first part down in an ice bath before cooling in the fridge. I will make this again and again...oh, and I used a chopped up Hershey bar since I had no fine chocolate...didn't think chocolate chips would do. Okay, okay, one more thing- I also poured it through a strainer after heating and I'm glad I did because I was able to capture some egg-type chunks. Thanks for a great go-to recipe! The kids and hubby loved it...
