About this Cook
I'm a stay at home mom and loving it! My cooking really started to branch out once I gained more time during the day and wasn't working. My husband and I were dirt poor during college with two kids, so I learned how to cook on a budget which has carried over now that we have graduated. I love being able to whip up good, and healthy meals for my growing family!
My favorite things to cook
Anything with sugar please! Though I am learning the art of cooking with veggies. Not too shabby!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Christmas...always christmas. My mom and I would bake for days on end. Baklava, sugar cookies, peppermint bark, gingerbread, divinity, fudge and more. Can you say delicious!?
My cooking tragedies
Luckily I have blocked most of them out, and my husband is kind enough not to mention them. :)

Frosted Banana Bars
Soooo yummy. Definitely don't make these when you're on a diet like me! They're too tempting! I cut the sugar down to 3/4 cup, and didn't miss any sweetness at all. These were so moist and perfect really. I do agree with other users that store bought frosting would be a tragedy. Find a good one on here, and you're set!!

Roasted Red Pepper Cream Sauce
This was WAY WAY WAY good! I didn't have fresh basil, so I just used dried italian seasoning but everything else I kept the same. Tossed on some linguine with some sauteed zucchini and yellow squash and it was a very yummy vegetarian meal!

Sweet and Sour Chicken I
Definitely my favorite. I always get so many compliments when I make this dish, and people are surprised to hear it wasn't take-out!
