About this Cook
I'm a mama of two little one's. I'm trying to expand my cooking skill and knowledge so I've been scouring this website trying new recipes and using my husband as the guinea pig... he doesn't mind at all!
My favorite things to cook
Breads, casseroles, fun salads, yummy desserts
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love our traditional holiday dinners. And I always try to bring a fun new side dish for everyone to try out.

My cooking tragedies
I left the house while I was trying a new banana bread reicpe. I figured I'd be home with plenty of time to spare before the bread was done baking. When I walked back in the house was filled with smoke! All of my mini loaf pans had over flowed all over the bottom of my oven! Yuck.

World's Best Lasagna
I'm giving this 5 stars...but as written it actually deserves only 4 stars. Too much salt. I was nervous when I saw 1 tablespoon salt, but I figured with all the 5 star ratings, it had to be great that way. This was one recipe when I really wish I would have read the reviews first. I usually like to try a recipe as is before doctoring it up and making substitutions. I should have trusted my instincts and used much MUCH less salt. It was delicious, but the salt sort of killed it for me. I could tell that without the extra salt it would be perfection. We all have our own opinions on salt, if I had made this for my mother she probably would have added more to her portion, lol. I did really love this...minus the salt.

Pear or Apple Cobbler
Oh my gosh this is so delicious!!! I used some pears that we received in a gift basket that were perfectly ripe. My husband loved it and asked if I would make it for Christmas. Next time I will definitely cut back on the sugar. The pears are so sweet anyway, so I'll cut back on both the maple syrup and the brown sugar in the topping. It was amazing, though. We topped it off with some french vanilla ice cream. I can't wait to make it again.
