About this Cook
I am a very busy mom of two busy teenagers.
My favorite things to cook
lasagna, breakfast casserole, grilled asparagus, grilled zucchini, grilled corn.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Carrot pie and chocolate silk pie. Every holiday I have to make these. Spinach balls as an appetizer are a family favorite. I mix and shape them and freeze a batch. My kids eat them as snacks, they can be baked frozen, just add 3-5 minutes to the bake time.
My cooking triumphs
Cheesecake, carrot cake, chocolate cake, banana cake, prune cake, oatmeal cake.
My cooking tragedies
White cakes. I have not found a white cake recipe that I can depend on.

Aunt Bert's White Cake
The stars are wrong. How could anyone give this 5 stars. first of all, there is no way to get a WHITE cake using 4 egg yolks. The photo cannot be of this cake. The recipe is written haphazardly, the ingredients are in no particular order. I had to keep checking and rechecking to be sure that I had not missed anything. This was intended for a birthday, it went in the trash. The cake is flat and grainy with an overwhelming eggy taste. I reminded me of cornbread. The top was crunchy. Even when topped with cream cheese frosting we could not eat this.
