About this Cook
I have been married now for 8 years and have a 5 year old son. I am a nursing student who really doesn't have much of a life outside of my family and school but that suits me just fine. I love to walk and run when I am not so lazy and just love being outdoors. When I am done with school I will be working as a Hospice and Palliative Care RN. Can't wait!!
My favorite things to cook
Love to cook plain old comfort foods the most but enjoy trying new recipes as well. I got a new oven three years ago and have since then started baking like crazy. Something is always is my oven
My cooking triumphs
I cook for entire family and host the holiday get togethers at my home. It huge for my because I am the youngest of seven and I am the one doing all the cooking and loving every minute of it.
My cooking tragedies
The first time I made strawberry pie for my husband, I followed the recipe as stated. The problem was that it said to boil the jello until clear. I guess I just wasn't thinking and boiled it way to long...trying to get it "clear". When the pie was done the filling was so chewy and rubbery but my husband ate it happily. I still laugh about it til this day!!!

Peanut Butter Popcorn
I would give this ten stars if I could! So good, so addictive, watch out you might gain a few pounds from this!! I did bake it to dry it out as well. The third time I made it I added more peanut butter but it wasn't as good. If you add more pb, then add more marshmallows too. You really need that sweet and stickiness from the marshmallows. Make this recipe, you won't be sorry!!

Cinnamon Sugar Biscotti
Really tasty! Dipped the end of the biscotti into white chocolate and it was perfect!

Chocolate Cherry Biscotti
This was my least favorite out of six biscotti recipes from this site. I had to substitute maraschino cherries for the candied cherries as I did not have any. Not sure if that is the reason why or not, but this biscotti was not real crisp and hard like I like it to be. Hubby and I both disliked how soft they turned out but thought the flavor combo was pretty good. Try this recipe but use the candied cherries and maybe bake it a few more minutes.
