About this Cook
I love cooking for family and friends,
My favorite things to cook
Most recently, Bread! Desserts are a close second, then anything else that sounds interesting!
My cooking triumphs
Anything is a triumph when I get the "MOM! this is awesome" from my boys.
My cooking tragedies
The first meal I cooked totally by myself (I was about 13-14!) involved some carrots that boiled dry, and my brother said they were hickory smoked. I also remember a lemon pie ( around the same time) that didnt set properly, and my brother put a straw in it in the fridge. Nice.

Heavenly Shortbread
this recipe is awesome. Actually messed up, would have been great the way it is written, but I downsized the pan, and shouldnt have. They took way to long to bake then came out partially raw near the middle. So, I cut it and re-baked for 10 minutes at 325, kind of like biscotti, and it turned out FANTASTIC!!! The regular recipe is 5 star, double baked it is 10 star!

Pear Pie III
This was suprisingly awesome, didnt expect it to be as good as it was. Had a bunch of pears to use up, company coming, and I needed dessert! This was a definite hit, the last piece was fought over, and eaten out of the pie plate. I did use the cinnamon on top, as someone else suggested.

Spinach and Leek White Bean Soup
I loved this soup, the only change I made was to use swiss chard in place of the spinach, I added it at the same time as the couscous. Delish!
