About this Cook
I have been married for six years to my wonderful husband and have two little boys and a girl. I work with Campus Crusade for Christ and also get to be a stay at home mom, which I love.
My favorite things to cook
I *love* to bake--baked goods and desserts are not only my weakness but also my art.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Baking cookies, cakes, and desserts for parties and company
My cooking triumphs
I made my first wedding cake in Dec. 2005. It consisted of six cakes--two red velvet, two carrot, and two white--each on tiered pedestals, covered in white frosting and red roses. I was pretty impressed with myself. I've also won the top prize for baked goods at our county fair twice.
My cooking tragedies
Many times, just before I'm about to entertain someone for dinner, whatever I'm cooking overflows in my oven and fills my house with smoke and ruins what I'm making. It's really frustrating.

Baked Aloha Chicken
I was really disappointed with this, the flavors sounded good but the end product just tasted like greasy bland chicken.

Guinataan Chicken Adobo
Sorry, my family did not like this recipe. It was greasy (even without the skins) and we just didn't like the flavor.

Slow Cooker Fruit, Nuts, and Spice Oatmeal
I really wanted to like this, but the texture was less than desirable (pasty) and it wasn't sweet at all. My husband and kids didn't like it either.
