About this Cook
I work for a community service agency that specializes in helping families.
My favorite things to cook
I like to cook just about anything. The only thing that would prevent me from making a dish is if an ingredient is too expensive or if in our small town of Tucson it is not available.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Probably during Thanksgiving . . . I would be allowed to peel potatoes. But I love my grandma's stuffing, it is the best.
My cooking triumphs
I used to bake a lot. I usually try recipes and I haven't actually written down my favorites. One recipe that I really enjoyed and went well was from my cooking light magazines. Pork and peaches, White Pizza, Grilled Chicken and watermelon salsa.
My cooking tragedies
I tried making this dense french chocolate cake and all was well until my oven just turned off on me and the cake didn't cook it all the way through. Boo! I also made Persimmon pudding not realizing that baking soda amount was too much and boo, it came out like an alkaselzer tab.

Buffalo Chicken Dip
I love this recipe! It is easy to make! I just throw everything together and nuke it in the microwave! I take this to parties, especially a fave among the mens. :)

Fresh Rhubarb Pie
This was a great filling and the tip about why not to mix the sugar with the rhubarb before was soooo helpful. Even with a finicky oven I turned out a great pie!

Italian Love Cake
This was a great recipe. I was looking for something different for an international potluck and didn't have much time to make something. The cake was moist because I read the reviews and some people who cooked their cake following the exact recipe said their cake was dry. I took mine out a little bit earlier. I just watched to see when the sides began pulling away from the pan, then checked it with a toothpick to make sure it came out clean. Also I liked that it was not overwhelmingly sweet. Everyone loved the cake and actually a few days later one of the girls asked for the recipe. I thought this was a great success!

Hard to believe, but many kids will be back in school at the end of the month. Get ready.

You won't believe all the things you can do with cauliflower. It's a great low-carb option.
