About this Cook
I like to cook and try new foods. I wish I had more time to be in the kitchen to experiment. I have a garden for the first time ever! Wow it is so neat to have fresh veggies outside my back door. Next years garden will be 2x bigger!
My favorite things to cook
I love to make appetizers and desserts. I really enjoy making unique birthday cakes for my son. See some of my pictures to see my masterpieces!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I often alter recipes before I even try them. As a general rule most recipes can be improved by adding chocolate, cheese OR nuts. Occassionally a combination of these will transform a good recipe into a great recipe!
My cooking triumphs
I am able to feed lots of people for a small amount of money.
My cooking tragedies
Too many to list.

Toasted Pumpkin Seeds with Sugar and Spice
Fabulous! My son and I ate an entire pumpkins worth of seeds in 20 minutes. I went out and got 4 more pumpkins to make more and those seeds are in the oven right now!
