About this Cook
I love being a mom and have 7 kids from ages 5 up to 18. They keep me busy and most days I love it! My husband and I go on dates each week and are very active in our church (LDS). Life is good!
My favorite things to cook
DESSERTS!! But I have to branch out so I can help my family eat healthy--My husband lost 35 pounds this year and I have to do my part to help him keep it off. I love to bake, especially cookies, muffins and cakes and do some self-taught cake decorating--have even done a few wedding cakes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom's roll recipe. It's so easy and good. I remember helping her make them, cinnamon rolls and cherry turnovers especially. Yum!
My cooking triumphs
I consider any day I can make a dinner that the majority of my family of nine will eat, that is generally healthy, and there's enough for everyone a triumph!
My cooking tragedies
When I was first learning to cook (probably 12 years old or so) I made cookies and switched the salt and sugar amounts. Eww!

Breadsticks with Parmesan Butter
Probably the best bread sticks I've ever made. My husband said to throw away all the other recipes. Yes, I added quite a bit more flour, until it wasn't sticking to everything, and less sugar-- 1 tablespoon instead of 7! I brushed with butter just out of the oven,and sprinkled with California garlic salt. Thanks for sharing an awesome recipe!
