About this Cook
I'm a happily married mother of three. I work full time in the restaurant industry. We live in Michigans beautiful Upper Pennisula. I come from a very large family. My mom made everything from scratch. I was 18 years old before I knew there was such a thing as "Hamburger Helper" and "Spam".
My favorite things to cook
I love my slow cooker. My kids call me the crockpot queen. I enjoy cooking a variety of things, but baking has to be my favorite. I love taking a recipe and tweeking it to make it my own.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Holiday time baking with my girls and close friends. My mother started a tradition years ago by making gingerbread houses for all the kids and grandkids and its a tradition I plan to keep going.
My cooking triumphs
Hosting Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner for 20 plus people and having everything come out beautiful. Also I do wonderful things with a porkloin, white wine, garlic and fresh rosemary and thyme.
My cooking tragedies
There was an incident 15 years ago with an oreo cheesecake that my husband still remembers. I lost the recipe and decided to swing it by memory. Lets just say that it didn't work out too well for me!

Luck o' the Irish Brownie
Made these today. They were very good. Made as written except for the topping. I made a chocolate ganache using a cup and a half of milk choc chips and 2/3 cup of heavy cream. My son said they tasted like Heaven. I would recommend cutting them very small, they are quite rich. Also I thought the mint layer was perfect.

Egg Noodles
Very good and really easy to make. My 8 yr old son helped me cut them and cook them. He was so proud. They tasted great in our homemade chicken soup. Will make again & again.
