About this Cook
I was a stay at home mom until recently going back to work . I enjoy doing all the things a stereotypical mom does (except the cleaing--that blows). I cook, of course! I also embroider and sew on my embroidery machine. I love to read all sorts of books--including cookbooks! I love my God and church and outside the home I enjoy exercising, working, and meeting up with friends.
My favorite things to cook
Mostly I love baking desserts. They always smell fabulous and give the whole house a warm feeling. I also enjoy making pasta dishes. It's amazing how versatile the recipes are. Any recipe I get, I make it as directed once, then play with the ingredients until I've personalized it to my families tastes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My daughters and I love to bake cookies during all holidays. We make sugar cookie dough and cut them out, then decorate them with anything that crosses our minds! My girls are older now and the oldest is gone to college but we still recall how much fun and HOW MESSY those times are! Even when I am the only one cooking, my girls hang out in the kitchen at the island and we have the best conversations while I fix a meal or try a new recipe out.
My cooking triumphs
My first pot of minestrone was the meal that means the most to me. I was a very young teen and made sure I had everything exactly as the recipe called for it. I remember to this day how great it looked, tasted, and how everyone was so impressed I had done it.
My cooking tragedies
When I was a young teen, I decided I wanted to make something 'sophisticated' so I chose beef stroganoff. Of course, I started cooking before I checked to make sure we had all the ingredients I needed. We didn't have the beef cut asked for in the recipe, and not wanting to wait at this point for any hamburger to thaw, I chose instead to use the hotdogs I found in the fridge. I sliced them up and served the meal to my dad, who ate it and of course thought it was terrific. Even now he laughs about what he thought when he first saw what I had done. Now whenever I try a new recipe that doesn't fly with my family, we just laugh, put on our shoes and go out to eat!

Fabulous Beef Tenderloin
This has got to be the best recipe I've found on this site! I can't wait to have an occasion to cook it again--I cooked this about 3 weeks ago and still think about how tender and flavorful this simple recipe is. I listened to the reviews saying the salt was a little much so since I didn't have low sodium soy sauce on hand, I subbed about a third of the soy sauce with plain water. I now have low sodium soy sauce on hand just waiting! Thank you so much for sharing!

Key Lime Ice Cream
I just bought an ice cream freezer and have been trying several ice cream recipes for it. This one is by far my favorite! Great blend of tart and sweet flavor. Creamy, rich texture. The only change I made was in adding crumbled graham crackers the last few minutes of freezing. It makes it tastes a little more like key lime pie and gives it a little crunch as well.

Slow Cooker Turkey Breast
So easy and taste fantastic! The smell in the house makes it so hard to wait. It's great hot or cold in a sandwich later. My husband (who thinks oven-roasted turkey is the only turkey) LOVED it! Thanks!
