About this Cook
I am a mom approaching 41. For the past ten years I have loved baking. I am definitely passionate about baking and cooking and consider it a fun hobby!!! It is also a wonderful teaching/bonding tool for my ten year old daughter Skylar. We cherish our time together in the kitchen.:)
My favorite things to cook
I love baking cupcakes, muffins, breads, cakes and cookies. I even enjoy making chocolate chile cake and a variety of fudge. As for cooking, I love to use my slow cooker. I have also perfected many dinner recipes such as breaded pork chops, italian meatballs, pulled pork, pot roast, casseroles and lasagna. Cooking and Baking are two of my favorite hobbies :)
My favorite family cooking traditions
Baking with my daughter Skylar. She even wears a chefs hat and apron when she bakes with me. Too Cute:)Skylar also helps me now when I cook. We even make our own marinara sauce from scratch!!
My cooking triumphs
I make delicious baked goods from scratch. I have made anything from easy box recipes to advanced difficult recipes. My baking is almost always from scratch.
My cooking tragedies
I flopped on a bundt cake. I had company and went to put bundt cake out of pan and on to plate and it fell apart. I also made rice krispie treats once that did not turn out very well.

Never Fail Chocolate Chip Cookies
These cookies were perfect!! They were extremely easy to make. I loved the fact that they were not overly sweet like some chocolate chip cookies that I have made in the past. They were also the perfect texture; not too soft or crunchy-just perfect. I did not have any unsalted butter on hand (which is what I always use for baking), so I simply omitted the salt. Other than omitting the salt, I followed the recipe 100%.

Brooke's Best Bombshell Brownies
Excellent recipe and quite easy. It is rich, chocolaty and decadent. I just should have waited to cut it! My picture does not do it justice, because I cut it right away. The end result was still fabulous. This will now be my permanent brownie recipe. Next time I will serve with vanilla bean ice cream on top. Delicious!!

Cocktail Meatballs III
Sauce is great, but made with 2.5 tablespoons of Worcestershire sauce and 2.5 teaspoons of Frank's Red Hot sauce. I also used 1.5 cups of dark brown sugar. Sauce was delicious and tangy. Also meatballs were flipped after 10 min each in oven. They needed more time than the recipe suggests. I had to keep checking meatballs and putting them back in oven..I also found that the meatballs did not cook properly. They need WAY more time than 10-15 min. I actually had to take the meatballs out after being already immersed in the sauce twice. I took them out, cooked them an additional 10 min and they were still pink in the middle. At that point, I put a half a cup of warm water in sauce and maybe 2 tbsps or so of Half and Half to sauce mixture (in hopes that sauce would boil more in crockpot cooking the meatballs). The warm water and half and half enhanced the flavor of the sauce even more, but did not help in cooking meatballs all the way through. Therefore, I ended up repeating 10 more minutes in the oven, but they were STILL pink in the middle. Finally, I took them out of the crockpot a third time, put them in the oven for 25 more minutes on 400 degrees. They cooked perfectly, so I put them back in the crockpot in sauce on low. I served them at a party, and not one meatball was left. The recipe was fantastic after a lot of "doctoring" which is why I gave it four stars, not five.. With my tweaking, the sauce was tangy and tasty. My eleven year old daughter LOVED these meatballs.
