About this Cook
I am married and have two kids. I have always liked to cook, but since I was married, I have enjoyed it more and more. I love when our family sits down togther and enjoys the foods that I have made.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook dinner dishes, like lasagna. And I love to bake desserts, like cakes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My grandmother taught me that you dont need a microwave oven or measuring spoons. Its all about the love (and memory) that you put in your dishes.
My cooking triumphs
Actually, anything is considered a triumph if everyone in my family will eat it and ask for seconds...that is truely a victory!!
My cooking tragedies
Ugh. I can not duplicate my grandmothers maravian sugar cake for anything. Hers was better than anything you could buy, and I have yet to come even near what hers was, and thats using her recipe!!!! Mine is always heavy, and never "right", unlike hers, which was always so incredibly fluffy and perfect.

Super Easy Chicken Fingers
ok, heres the deal on this one. I was so glad i read the reviews before i cooked this. I really changed the whole recipe, but this was a great "staple" recipe. I used egg whites, instead of butter, (you know, those pesky fat and calorie things)used crackers and ranch style croutons (like someone else suggested) and cooked them 10-15 minutes at 425 on the top rack. I also tenderized the chicken breasts before i cut them up. I did not have a soggy piece of chicken, on either side, these were super crunchy. My WHOLE family said these were the absolute best, and when the WHOLE family agrees, you can bet it was good!

Honey Mustard Dressing II
SUPER FANTASTIC - no changes. My son, who HATES mustard or anything like it, says this is better than Ranch! I wish I could give it more than 5 stars!

Baked Potato Salad I
Simply fantastic!! I have already made this several times, because people ask for it. Sometimes I split 1/2 sour cream and 1/2 mayo, and either way, its still just great!!!
