About this Cook
I am a stay at home mom of three wonderful children (12 old son, 10 yr. old daughterand a 6 year old son). I love to cook and am always looking for new recipes to try. I am looking forward to the years ahead of me, both for watching my children grow and learn, but also myself. I hope to earn my Masters in Economics in the few years.
My favorite things to cook
Cakes, cookies, anything yummy and sweet. I also like to make new dishes and anything that my picky son will eat. I especially like recipes that are quick and easy that get me in and out of the kitchen so I have more time to spend with my family.
My favorite family cooking traditions
When I was young, my sisters and I would help my mom bake and decorate christmas cookies. Now I've started that tradition with my own children. Last christmas my 3 year old cut out and decorated the cookies. This Christmas will be even better because I will have two little helpers.
My cooking triumphs
I don't like cheesecake, but my husband and son love it. So for their Christmas desert I made them a New York style cheesecake and it was a hit. My husband said that it tasted just like the kind he would get in a restaurant.
My cooking tragedies
My first Asian inspired meal I tried to cook after I married was a disaster that we still laugh about to this day over 6 year later. It was so bad we left the meal on the table to go to our favorite Asian restaurant.

Fresh Cherry Crisp
This was my first attempt of baking with fresh cherries, and it was wonderful! I cut the recipe in half since there were only 2 adult and 2 children eating it. I used 2 1/2 c. cherries and added a tsp. of cinnamon to the topping. Very good! I think next time I will add even more cherries. This recipe is a keeper. Thank you!!

Whole Wheat Banana Nut Bread
This was very good. I made it as listed, but I added about 3/4 c mini chocolate chips and an extra 1/c cup bananas. Came out very very moist. So moist that it falls apart when I cut it. I had to bake it for about 70 minutes and it came out nice and brown. (baked it in a glass dish at 325). Kids love it. Will be making it again. I think next time I will make it with applesauce to make it even more healthier.

Lisa's Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cake
Excellent!! I made this for myself for my birthday, so I made it exactly has written. When cooled my son poured some melted frosting over the top and then I dusted with powdered sugar. Very very good. My husband said that it is the best chocolate cake he ever had. This probably will be a birthday staple from now on. The one thing I will do differently next time is put some more mini chocolate chips on the frosting before it cools. Very very good cake. Thanks for the reciep.
