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.

Bacon-Wrapped Leg of Lamb with Red Wine Reduction
My husband and I prepared this last night for dinner with his parents. It was a HUGE hit. We are Irish, so instead of making the red wine reduction, we used mint jelly. But the meat came out tender, moist, and very flavorful so it really didn't need anything. For the last hour, we threw in small golden potatoes cut in quarters, after soaking them for a bit in water. They came out yummy, crisp on the outside and soft on the inside. Next time I may soak them in beef broth to see if that enhances the flavor. But this is definitely a recipe we will serve again!

Amazing Pork Tenderloin in the Slow Cooker
This recipe was very disappointing. I would not make it again. The only plus was being able to fix the pork roast in the crock pot. I followed the directions, only cooked for 4 hours. I did set the slow cooker on high because of some reviews I read. I guess that was a mistake. The roast came out like shredded pork, not a good piece of loin roast. I shredded the leftovers and put my homemade BBQ sauce on it so the boys can have sandwiches later in the week.

Apple Delight
After reading several negative reviews, I tried a twist. I sprinkled only 1/2 a box of cake onto the fruit. Also, instead of just apple pie filling, I mixed 1 apple and 1 strawberry pie filling together, put into bottom of the pan first. After drizzling the butter on top, I gently mixed the cake mix with the butter. I baked it for 40-45 minutes, and it came out wonderful! The top was crispy and yummy. My boys all loved it (got 3), so we will definitely make this again.
