About this Cook
I enjoy eating so it's just right that I enjoy cooking as well. I love cooking for others, especially during holidays and special occasions. To me---food is a symbol of family, friendship, and love. Cooking is a way to relax and calm my forces me to focus. I love trying new recipes and learning new things along the way.
My favorite things to cook
desserts, breakfast/brunch, and comfort food.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Making a big breakfast (sometimes brunch) during the weekend.
My cooking triumphs
Trying recipes that seem intimidating and have it turn out perfectly in the end :)
My cooking tragedies
I've tried to make chili at least 3-4 different occasions and I can't seem to make it taste right. I'm not sure if it's me or just can't find the right recipe that I like---either way, I'll continue trying until I get it right.

Janet's Rich Banana Bread
This has become my go to banana bread recipe. It's easy, moist, and I enjoy the flavor. The only change I make is to mash the bananas---it's more of a texture preference for me. I use my mixer to mash the bananas, then I throw in the butter, sugar, and follow the rest of the recipe. Great recipe, thank you for sharing! :)

Irresistible Pecan Pie
this pie was amazing!! the only thing i changed was use a frozen pie crust. i used a regular pie crust, but i suggest using deep dish crust since the filling overflowed. a delicious pie and a definite keeper!!
