About this Cook
I'm married with 3 kids. I love to try new recipes. I also enjoy bike riding and horse back riding.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook with chicken and turkey. My kids love it when I bake.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My favorite family cooking tradition is making sugar cookies with my kids during the Christmas holiday. I let them decorate however they want even if I think that it looks horrible. Then we give them away as gifts from my kids.
My cooking triumphs
I think that any time I try a new recipe, especially if it is with ingredients I am not familiar with, and it turns out good - that is my cooking triumph!
My cooking tragedies
The first time I made a cake from scratch I got the recipe from my grandmother over the phone. She said "three fourths cup of shortening" I thought she said three and one fourth cup shortening. It made a realy fluffy batter that caught my oven on fire half way through baking. Even though I have baked that cake many times after that first cake, I still get teased.

Black Bean and Cucumber Salad
Made as directed. It was edible but nothing fantastic. Too much sweetness.

Brownie Caramel Cheesecake
made as directed. The only suggestion I would make is to not spread the caramel all the way to the edges of the brownie before dumping the cheesecake mixture on it - maybe even making a moat. I found that the outside edges were quite hard and chewy due to the caramel baking to the sides of the pan. Most certainly did not see the caramel layer once cut but it was still a winner
