About this Cook
Well, I am a mother of 2 beautiful girls - they are 5 and 7 right now. I am a Supervisor in the place I work. I really enjoy that also. We love to go camping and fishing, and love the outdoors. I love to garden, both flowers and veggies. Summer is my fave time of year.
My favorite things to cook
A nice rare steak on the BBQ is always good, but I make great pasta, pizza, soups/stews, stirfrys, salads. I love to bake, am famous for my shortbread cookies...:) And I do admit, I bake lots of things really well....
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love to bake with my hubby. We cook pretty well together too.... It's much more fun to cook with a helper! :) Ever since we got a dishwasher - life has began! I love to cook - hate to clean up the mess afterwards!
My cooking triumphs
I have won a few awards from local fairs, as I entered my work, and got a lot of first place ribbons! Very exciting!
My cooking tragedies
I have had my share, I assure you. From leaving out important ingredients, to burning things black. Hey, I'm only human....right?

Soft and Chewy Peanut Butter Cookies
oh my goodness.... these cookies are simply AMAZING! I have made plenty of PB cookies in the past, but these are the best by far. The batter is very unique - sticky, but it falls off the spatula with no residue...very cool. And the flavour is also very good.... They do take a while to bake, and they spread out on the cookie sheet, so if you are looking for very pretty cookies, space them at least an inch apart. A MUST TRY for family and friends. I get followed around at work by my co-workers when I walk in the door with these cookies....:)

Harvest Rice Dish
this rice was delicious! My husband and I devoured it, however, the kids were a little more partial to the chicken quesadillas I made to go with it. EXCELLENT RECIPE!!

Melt - In - Your - Mouth Shortbread
OH MY GOODNESS!! these cookies are TO DIE FOR!! It is very important that you whip the out of the butter....turn on the mixer, and walk away....let it whip for like 20 minutes...add the rest of the ingredients, and whip it some more... After they are baked....they really do MELT in your far, the BEST shortbread I have ever made!!
