About this Cook
Hi! I'm Carolyn. Married to David since 1986. We have 3 sons. I feel like I used to be a pretty decent cook. Since 3 sons have now become men, and we moved into a fixer upper with a less than scrumptious kitchen... the meals actually have come to downright annoy me. I don't so much enjoy being in the kitchen. One day I will have a new kitchen. I look forward to that. Alas, I keep my chin up and keep attempting to move forward, setting tasty nutritious food on the coffee table before me and he! and sometimes... I made it! :-)
My favorite things to cook
I used to make amazing cheesecake! um and casseroles that were all yumminess mixed up. Cookies. Now... I seem to mess just about everything up. Overcooked or undercooked. I blame DVR! LOL That and that blasted kitchen that has just sucked the creative being I once was right outta me. Today I baked a bundt cake outta the box. I popped onto allrecipes and wallah! Its gorgeous with the chocolate glaze recipe I found! HEY! I pulled one off! HIP HIP Hooray!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Christmas morning bakes. New Years Eve Fondue (New in 2013) Birthday Cakes
My cooking triumphs
Todays Bundt cake! LOL
My cooking tragedies
*Last month's undercooked meatloaf! UGHHHH *My first attempt at homemade chicken soup. I left the chicken on the burner cooking on low. Yes a full stockpot of water... Left the apt to gather celery and carrots.. maybe onion too, from the grocery store less than a block away. U[pon my return as I approached the 3rd home from my apt, I began to smell smoke. You guessed it! My entire little apt had filled with smoke from the boiled dry stock pot. I can't believe the home owner under us didn't address this with me. YIKES! Anyways... my husband is forever yelling at me to "turn that burner down!"

Rosa Marina Fruit Salad
My brother LOVES this stuff. I made it more out of sentimentality than anything for Easter this year. It went over poorly with my husband's family. Texture was an issue. Flavor is sweet enough.

Vanilla - Chocolate Powdered Sugar Frosting
My new GO TO for frosting. My husband even liked it! (He is a die-hard store bought user).

Peppermint Punch
SOMETHING DIFFERENT!! Served it at a party after a rehearsal. Nobody said they liked it! I thought it was pretty, but the milkiness didn't go over well. People seem to prefer nice red punches? Might try this with the family before I scrap the idea.
