About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
Desserts, desserts, desserts! And my famous BBQ sauce with I WON'T share. Sorry folks!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Making and decorating Christmas cookies with my sons.
My cooking triumphs
Making up my own BBQ sauce recipe. I was amazed at how everyone, friends and family alike, love it more than the store-bought brands!
My cooking tragedies
My first year of marriage I had nothing in the kitchen except rice and sausage. I actually found a recipe for that! It was the worst thing I've every fixed! We ordered pizza.

Barbeque Bacon Chicken Bake
This is a very good basic recipe. Like others, I made a few changes. I rubbed down the chicken breasts with Kick Butt Rib Rub - Chipotle Honey, then 5 minutes before they were done, I put a piece of Provolone cheese on top of each breast. My boys LOVED it, and told me to save this recipe! I make my own BBQ sauce, so no Sweet Baby Ray's here.

Puppy Chow I
We have a friend that has made this for years. My husband and oldest are going on a Boy Scout campout this weekend, and wanted to take a different snack. My husband suggested puppy chow, and looked up the recipes himself. We chose this one, and it's great! Of course, we can NEVER leave any recipe alone, so we added our own variation. We used 1/2 semisweet chocolate chips and 1/2 butterscotch chips. We added vanilla like other reviewers suggested, and it's awesome! We hope it makes it till tomorrow night when they get to the campsite for cracker barrel!

French Onion Soup Gratinee
My husband and I love to cook. Neither of us as ever attempted French onion soup before, but love it. We chose this recipe because of all the rave reviews. It is AWESOME! We did make some changes though (we just can't leave anything alone!) We used a full stick of butter with the onions because we couldn't get them to caramelize with only 4 Tbsp. We used 20 oz of beef consomme and the rest beef broth because we like a beefier flavor. We put garlic in most everything, so added two cloves of garlic, minced. My local grocery was out of fresh thyme AND parsley, so we had to skip the parsley and used dried thyme leaves. Of course, at the end I forgot to add the balsamic vinegar before broiling the soup, but it didn't hurt it. Next time we will have to compare and see if it changes the flavor. We tried the Gruyere cheese with 2 cups and swiss with the other 2 cups. we used shredded mozzarella. The Gruyere was much better! We will be making this again soon, and sharing it with family!
