About this Cook
31 year old mom of 4 month old twin boys, Matthew and Nicolas. They have very particular taste and I find myself on here daily gathering recipes that I can make quickly and make the whole family happy. It's not easy to work all day get home at 5:30 and serve dinner by 6:00, some days a half an hour is all you've got. And with two screaming toddlers at your ankles the slow cooker is my best friend. I love comming home to a home made roast beef with veggies all ready to go.
My favorite things to cook
I love making gift desserts, by gift desserts I mean the kind of beautifully presented cake or banana loaf that you can give and have someone appreciate. If ever you have a difficult person at christmas to shop for, bake them some nice holiday cup cakes, comes from the heart.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family when I was growing up was into take out, and ordering food and I've chosen to do my best to keep that away from my children and make home cooking a family affair. Even at 18 months old my twin boys help make banana bread, they're great little banana mashers.
My cooking triumphs
The day I baked my first from scratch pie crust, I got the recipe here it's fantastic easy and wow's everyone even my critical MOM! I invented a berry filling and it just happened to turn out fantastically and my husband requestes it every year on his birthday.
My cooking tragedies
I cannot grill a steak if my life depended on it, I leave the BBQ to my husband. It's always over cooked or way undercooked.

Banana Sour Cream Bread
very doughy, floury and chewy not much banana flavor and not a nice texture.

Delilah's Frosted Cut-Out Sugar Cookies
BEST sugar cookie recipe ever! My kids adore these in their lunchbox. I make the dough and bake up a dozen cookies and place the rest in the fridge for another day. Stores up to a week this way, or freeze for later use. Great way to entertain kids at a party, deocrate cookies.

Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies II
My fault I didn't like these, I miss took soft for chewy. These were soft, and like many other reviews said refridgerating the dough makes them better. They don't spread at all when baking, soft texture, not overly tastey.
