About this Cook
I am a new mom, well my son Manny was born 7 months ago. I am just getting back into cooking more elaborate dishes now that he can play by himself for a little while. He loves to watch me cook (for the most part). I have been married for almost 5 years and enjoy cooking for my husband and our friends and family.
My favorite things to cook
I love to have a recipe and make it my own by changing this ingredient or substituting different ingredients. I like to cook chicken dishes, soups, I do a lot of cooking from my Grandmothers recipes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I learned to cook at a very young age by watching/helping my Grandmother. She always made homemade bread, cookies and everything was from "scratch"
My cooking triumphs
Anytime I can get my husband to eat my cooking is a triumph. He is very picky.
My cooking tragedies
There have been quite a few. From overcooking to undercooking to adding the wrong ingredients...I could go on.

Blueberry Cream Slushy
I made this for myself and my three year old after we decided it was too hot for a real supper while Daddy was away. I did have to change it a little bit. I left out the yogurt and added a small can of pineapple tidbits with the juice instead of the juice. It came out great! We both loved it. We will definetly make this again!

Cow Pies
Yummy! I am 8 months pregnant and was craving something with chocolate and raisins...this was perfect. I didn't drop them into individual candies, but spread the mixture into a round cake pan. Thanks for the great recipe!

Pumpkin Apple Streusel Muffins
These are the yummiest muffins I have ever made. I did substitute apple sauce for the oil. They were so moist. I will be making these again...and often. Thanks for a great recipe.
