About this Cook
Christian. Wife. Mom. I love to cook but hate to clean. It limits my enthusiasm. I'm slightly veg, eating poultry on holidays and fish once in a while.
My favorite things to cook
Pineapple upside down cake. Salmon. Quiche. Anything that involves a pressure cooker! I honestly love making chili from dried beans in an hour!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Sugar cookies. Yeast buns and cinnamon rolls. Pizza.
My cooking triumphs
Almost everything I make turns out. But, I am impressed, as was everyone else with Martha Stewart's recommendation of adding bay leaves and salt under the skin of the turkey.
My cooking tragedies
Introducing one temperamental oven and a severely stubborn bird. I had started roasting a 15 pound turkey at 9 am-ish in a 350 degree oven, thinking it would be well done by 3ish...WRONG-O! That flippin' bird did not get done until 7:30 that night! No kidding.

Next-Best-Thing-To-Robert-Redford Pie
I grew up with an easier version, which is just as good, and makes more sense, as it is blonde, just like Mr. Redford! Substitute the crust mixture for a pre-made graham cracker crust. Substitute the puddings with two packages of butterscotch pudding. Substitute the semisweet chocolate with 3 crushed butterfingers. layer: 1/2 cream cheese/cool whip filling 1/2 crushed butterfingers all pudding filling 1/2 cream cheese cool whip filling 1/2 crushed butterfingers Ten minute pie. Super fast, super good.

Easy Peach Crisp I
My grandma calls this a dump cake. The only difference is that with dump cake, you only dust the fruit with a bit of sugar, flour and cinnamon, then you dump the cake mix over the top and pour a MELTED cube of butter over the cake mix and voila! Bake that sucker until it's golden brown and delicious. The cake mix has nearly enough sugar to sweeten any fruit but rhubarb and strawberries!

Cream Cheese Penguins
Sorry, thought this was going to be a fun chance to implement a family tradition. NOT AN EASY RECIPE! I got the kids and ingredients and mom-in-law together and we broke olive after olive and while the "survivors" were cute, were not worth the effort! We made 9. Carrot, cream cheese and olive is not a taste blend that agrees with many people. But, those who were not part of the preparation were enamored with them.
