About this Cook
I am a working mother and wife with two boys, three dogs, ten chickens and a rabbit. We are very active with both sons and their favorite hobby- BASEBALL!
My favorite things to cook
Chicken Marsala or anything Italian. I like to cook on the grill, and my family likes seafood on the grill, especially BBQ Salmon on cedar planks.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love to cook in the kitchen with my kids. They are now asking if they can have their "own" set of cooking utensils!
My cooking triumphs
I made a tropical orange/pineapple glaze topped cheesecake for our annual church shrimp boil and I won first place!
My cooking tragedies
For Christmas every year, I always make Pumpkin pie for my family. One year I forgot to put in the sugar! My brother tasted it and said "What kind of pie is this supposed to be?" because he though I was trying something new.

Tzatziki Sauce
I did not need this much, so I used 1/2 the amount of yogurt, only 1 cucmber and 1 TBS of olive oil. I did not have dill, so I added fresh oregano instead. I chopped the cucumbers by hand and decided they weren't small enough after everything was mixed so I threw everything in the processor. It was not runny at all, but I think the yogurt is why. I bought Greek yogurt that had already been strained. This tasted better than a few Greek restaurants I have been to!

Good Old Fashioned Pancakes
I love this recipe as is but I have also made changes due to lack of ingredients and that worked too. I was out of butter once and used canola oil instead and they still turned out great. For those of you that like your pancakes that perfect brown color you see at restaurants, make sure your griddle is hot before you pour the batter, but not so hot it burns. (Medium works great on my stove) Wait until the top is covered with bubbles and they start popping all over and the edges start to look dry. Flip only once if possible. I use a cast iron skillet and cook one at a time and keep them warm in the oven set at 250 degrees. Once the bach is done, serve 'em up with hot syrup and butter.

Irish Cream Bundt Cake
This was really good! I served it for St Patty's day and they whole thing was devoured. I added chocolate chips to the batter and omiited the nuts. Let the cake sit covered overnight to soak in the glaze and then glazed it again with a chocolate glaze made with three parts chocolate chips and 1 part heated milk, mixed well.
