About this Cook
I'm a wife and mother just trying to balance home and career. My biggest challenge is sticking to our weekly menu. I can plan the weeks meals but then we tend to be lazy and decide going out is the better option. I'm challenging myself this year to cook at home as much as possible including making lunches for my family.
My favorite things to cook
I love, love, love baking... Sweets! The larger the quantity the better.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanksgiving supper. It's an all day ordeal and it's a good time to spend w/ family.
My cooking triumphs
The first time I've ever altered a recipe, just to try it, and it turned out better than expected.
My cooking tragedies
I can honestly say I have none. :)

Grandma's Oatmeal Cookies
I loved this recipe. I don't like raisins but this recipe smelled so good during prep that I had to try the finished product and it turned out wonderfully! MMMMM!!!

Pecan Pumpkin Pie I
This recipe was a hit. The only complaint I have was there was too much pumpkin batter to fit into the Deep Dish pie crust. Other than that this pie was a hit and it tastes great!
