About this Cook
I'm a MomMom to twin 4 year old girls, and step MomMom to a 3 yr old boy. I love them to death and love to make things they'd like. Mostly that would be COOKIES. Alyssa will eat anything, Paige will eat whatever her Daddy eats, and Kaleb will only eat pizza and chicken, so we tell him everything is chicken.
My favorite things to cook
Chicken, fish, pot roast with veggies, and comfort foods like PotPie ( the PA Dutch type: big egg noodles and meat & potatoes!) I love to bake cakes and cookies too. I'll try anything if it's not too complicated.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My parents are atypical: Dad's the cook, Mom's the cleaner-upper. My father is an excellent cook. We love his Meat Pie, Pot Pie, BBQ Ribs, and Thanksgiving turkey with PopPop's World Famous Stuffing is a BIG family tradition. He is also famous for his Strawberry Pie and Lemon Ice Cream.
My cooking triumphs
Can't say I've ever had any. So let me tell you about my tragedies:
My cooking tragedies
Oh harken back to the Bulletproof Birthday Cake... Then there were the scrambled beer eggs. Ghastly. The death-by-garlic lima beans of my youth are still discussed occasionly, as are my hockey puck sticky buns. I could go on, but why embarrass myself needlessly?

Pennsylvania Dutch Corn Pie
This is wonderful. I've made it as the recipe is here, and with chicken. My son liked it better with chicken. The taste is just incredible. Just because it sounds weird, don't knock it. It's amazing!
