About this Cook
dstar40@gmail.com say where you are writing from. I am married 18 years and mother of 4 boys. The boys are very active in Boy Scouts / Cub Scouts. I enjoy trying new and different recipes and gardening. I am currently a Teaching Assistant. I also enjoy crafts and have gotten into listening to books on tape / CD. I started listening to these when I needed to pass the time waiting for the bus.
My favorite things to cook
I enjoy cooking alot of recipes. Most of the time I am searching for new desserts to try for potlucks or for breakfasts for our boys. My favorite main dish to cook is a beef stroganoff I have perfected over the years. I also make my Buffalo chip cookies that are requested alot and a cheese cake that I came up with (a doctored up box mix) I also love the sweet dinner rolls from this website. I have made cinnamon rolls out of these and they are wonderful.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I can't say that we have any one favorite cooking traditions but my Favorite Holidays to cook are Thanksgiving and Christmas. It has taken me over 20 years to perfect the turkey to get it moist and juicy and the kids even love it especially at Thanksgiving. Ham is the preferred favorite at Christmas with a honey mustard glaze and Pineapple slices with a cherry in the center of each pineapple slice.
My cooking triumphs
Beef Stew, Beef Stroganoff and Chicken Broccoli are by far 3 recipes that my family always loves. And this says alot since their tastes are always changing.
My cooking tragedies
When I was 15 I made my first cake from scratch. My mom left me to make it all by myself. I added in all of the ingredients and when it came to the baking powder I told my mom we did not have enough. Her response was I just bought a new can. I misread the recipe and instead of 2 tsp I thought it read 2 Cups. I had the 2 right but I looked down and saw that it was 4 cups of flour. It bubbled over and the cake was not too bad till you got to the aftertaste. My second cake was to follow and mom stayed with me. A pineapple upsidedown cake. Turned out perfectly.

Pecan Pie Muffins
Had these the other day at a luncheon. They were absolutely wonderful. They are like mini pecan pies. A crispy texture on the outside and slightly gooey in the middle just like a pecan pie. Will have to make these myself this holiday season. Thank you for sharing your recipe. A must try...

Waldorf Salad I
I wanted to try something healthier with this recipe so I did make a few changes. I omitted the salad dressing/mayo and took a large container of whipped cream and added in warmed up package of cream cheese. I also doubled the recipe used granny smith apples and stirred in a bag of mini marshmallows. I also used a bag of glazed walnuts because they were less expensive. I made it for a ladies fellowship. Was loved by all. and they even took the leftovers home.

Waffles II
These were ok. They were doughy in the center and not sweet. After tasting the first one I added in a small amount of sugar and they still lacked a sweet flavor. Was hoping to find a recipe that had few ingredients and flavorful without the syrup.
