About this Cook
Married for almost 25 years Mother of 2 - (1 girl & 1 boy)
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake! I enjoy making fancy desserts and holiday treats.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Cinnamon rolls (made from scratch, of course), bacon brocolli quiche, and various cheesecakes are a Christmas tradition.
My cooking triumphs
Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie, Custard Pie and various cheesecakes are expected by my family at holiday time. My homemade macaroni and cheese is a favorite with my family.
My cooking tragedies
A sugar-free yellow cake was so dry and had no flavor at my husband's birthday. An oreo cookie crust for one of my cheesecakes was so hard that it was impossible to cut and ended up staying on the bottom of the pan

Raspberry Almond Coffeecake
I decided to follow the directions of other reviewers and doubled the recipe. I used a 10 inch springform pan and it was the perfect size. I also used 1 c. each of strawberries, raspberries, and blueberries. The mixed berries were delicious! Because I only had 1/2 c. sour cream on hand, I used a 6 oz. container of raspberry cheesecake yogurt along with it. It worked well. I took this to a pay day breakfast at school and there wasn't a single crumb left!

Cool Whipped Frosting
This was excellent! My husband has to watch his sugar intake so I changed a few things. I went with sugar-free cool whip and sugar-free french vanilla pudding. He wanted a peanut butter frosting so I added about 1/2 cup of peanut butter to the pudding after I mixed it with beaters. I then folded in the cool whip. It tasted so good! I even had a small bowl left after I generously frosted the bundt cake I made. It will be great to enjoy as a rich bowl of pudding, too!!

Apple Crisp II
This is delicious! I decided to only make 1/2 batch to start with but after reading the other reviews I went with a 1/2 batch of the apple mixture (only using 1/8c. of water) but stayed with the whole recipe for the topping of oats, flour and brown sugar. I topped it off with caramel swirl vanilla ice cream. It was the perfect addition!
