It is Awesome :)
Cheese Turkey
About this Cook
I'm a SAHM of two with a husband who isn't afraid to try new things (although the kids are frequently picky)
My favorite things to cook
I love my crock pot and anything that I can make in it, even dessert. I make a mean pot of spaghetti sauce with/without meatballs. My mexican pie gets rave reviews as does my Awesome Broccoli Casserole (thank you allrecipes:). And my father in law gets a pan of lemon squares for his birthday every year.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Cooking was always part of my family. Christmas in our family doesn't consist of ham and turkey (that's Thanksgiving). Instead, we make pans and pans of lasagna with tiny, hand-rolled meatballs, braciole, and of course canoli for dessert. I've been rolling tiny meatballs and stuffing canoli since I could hold a spoon :)
My cooking triumphs
The first year I was the holiday hostess. I made the lasagna all by my lonesome. My mom was supposed to help, but came down with the flu and slept most of the day. It turned out great.
My cooking tragedies
On the way to a potluck, my chocolate poundcake (which literally takes hours to prepare) fell off the platter onto the floor of the car. Luckily, no harm done, thankfully my car was clean. And only my husband and I were aware that something went wrong.

To Die For Blueberry Muffins
Definitely lives up to the name. These were SOOOOO good! And came together really quickly. I didn't have any plain white sugar in the house, but I had some of that substitute and sugar blend and it turned out great. I would use regular or brown sugar in the topping, as I could taste that difference, but it was still very good. I did splash in a little extra milk. UPDATE: I substituted apple sauce for the oil this morning (I was out of veg oil and I wanted to try it a little healthier) and they were DELICIOUS still!!

Cream Cheese Frosting II
I only needed half so I halved the ingredients to suit my needs. This frosting is perfection. It's not like creamed sugar, you can actually taste the cream cheese. I doubt I'll buy the can again unless I'm crunched for time (although, this took all of 10 minutes and I used cream cheese and butter straight from the fridge!) I will also say that the reason I only needed half was because I didn't realize that I would need more than one can of the store bought. So for consistancy's sake, I made my own, then dumped in the can...A completely new taste and experience.

Buffalo Chicken Dip
Ordinarily, I lothe it when someone reviews a recipe on here based on the changes they made. HOWEVER, that being said, I started making this last night too late to use the directions as written. I did use the ingredients as written (down to the Franks sauce...buffalo style :) ) only I microwaved it all in a big measuring bowl. I have to say, it tasted great. Next time I make it, and there will be a next time, I'll use the crock pot method, if for no other reason than to keep it warm while serving. But it was the star of my super bowl show :)
