About this Cook
I am a mother of 3, stepmother to 3, so I guess we have a bit of the Brady bumch going on. The only thing is they are all grown up with the last one in college. Now they come to visit and thats when I try to make their favorites, which comprises lasagna, chocolate chip cookies, chicken bundles and breaded round steak to name a few. There is nothing I like more than having my house full of the kids again.
My favorite things to cook
I like to bake but lately I am trying new recipes for supper all the time. My husband has become a real taste tester for me.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We make our grandmothers stuffing recipe that my sister and I have passed down to our daughters now.
My cooking triumphs
Great at cookies, my grandson appreciates that along with his uncles!
My cooking tragedies
too many to go into!!!

Tilapia with Creamy Sauce
both my husband and I thought it was too much dill. Would maybe better if this was cut down. Might try with some tweaks of less dill and lemon. The sauce did not mix very well either. Just not a winner for us.

Ho Ho Cake
I made this recipe for Christmas day....."Oh my God and I gotta have this recipe", that is what I heard from all who tried it. I used a reguar cake mix and made it in a jelly roll pan, doubled the creme mixture and then I made it simpler by using a canned frosting. Just mivrowave the frosting for about 20 seconds and it just went on the cake extremely easy. This is a great dessert. It wil be asked for at all the family get togethers for a long time to come!!!

Chicken Marsala
Thought this was great. My hubby made sure I put this one in my recipe box!! A definite keeper. I added a bit of chicken broth to increase the sauce along with a bit more marsala wine. As good as you can get in a restaurant, thanks so very much Lisa!
