About this Cook
I'm a semi crunchy granola stay at home mom to my two kiddos Catherine and Henry. Catherine is turning 4 in September, and Herny will be also be 2 in September. I'm fairytaleishly and cheeseifully (YEAH those are words so shut up already) in love with and married to my husband Patrick. We've been married for seven years and we we high school sweethearts *heartfelt awwwwww's and applause* Both of our children have autism.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook anything! One of my favorite hobbys is to try and recreate a dish I enjoyed at a resturant or by another cook. The only area where I really need some work, that I have not been able to teach myself asian cooking. My flavors are good, by textures are not. I think I may take some classes in this area.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Christmas cookies! What else?
My cooking triumphs
Being the "mom who makes the best chocolate chip cookies" and also creating my own really fantastic enchilada sauce. Better than any other I've ever had! (Try it!) And my blondies.... oh so so good!!!
My cooking tragedies
Oh dear. I keep wanting to come up with a pumpkin cookie that is chewy and NOT cake-like, it's just not happening. The ones I come up with are good, but decidedly cake-like and that is not what I am going for at all!

Ken's Kickin' Posole
This was very good. I added lime juice at the end and a couple of hits of a chipotle hot sauce I have because I wanted a bit more heat. Served with chopped cilantro and diced avacado. This is a keeper!

Ruth's Grandma's Pie Crust
Sigh... I'm really unhappy... this was WONDERFUL... and now I'm going to have to make fresh pie crust from now on... no more boxed junk for me.... alas!! Ignorance was bliss! LOL No but thank you for sharing it, it's really REALLY quite good. I used butter as had no shortening, and put a dash of vanilla for an apple pie. Yum.

Rolled Dumplings
I've never had dumplings before but I wanted to try them. Based on the reviews I thought I would try these, they were yummy and my 7 year old daughter loved them. I put them in some homemade chicken soup. Thank you for sharing this recipe. I didn't have shortening and used butter and it seemed fine! Thank you!
