About this Cook
I have a wonderful husband and 3 beautiful boys. I am a Realtor for the Lancaster County and surrounding area. I LOVE cooking! We are blessed to be a part of a wonderful church. I lead the Women's Ministry and Worship. Cooking is a out to express my creativity. Just like the others on this website-I enjoy tweeking recipes a bit to make them "my own".

My cooking triumphs
Baking is not my favorite thing to do--However, this website has made me a much better dessert maker. People think I love to bake because of the wonderful recipes I have made from the site. My banana cake is now famous!
My cooking tragedies
My husband has come a LONG way. He isn't has afraid to try new things. However, I cannot make anything with artichokes, olives, tomatoes etc. He is not a big fan a mediterranean food and I LOVE it!

White Cheese Chicken Lasagna
I am not big on posting all the switches I made to the recipe..but this was excellent! I like a little spice in my lazagna and hot italian sausage goes very well with, I added 1 cup of hot italian sausage ground and 1 cups of chicken. My kiddos do not like ricotta cheese, so I made the filling with 2 eggs, 1-8oz box of cream cheese and 1 cups of shedded italian blend cheeses and 1/4 cup parmesean. DELICIOUS!

Pumpkin Yeast Bread
I would recommend this to anyone. I did make a few changes and it was DELICIOUS! I changed the yeast to 2-1/2 tsp.. Some had suggested 1 Tbsp. WAY TOO MUCH..Bread rises and sinks. I also added 1/3 packed brown sugar to make it a little sweeter. Lastly, I skipped the nutmeg and ginger and added 1/2 tsp of Pumpkin Pie Spice. BEAUTIFUL BREAD and super delicious! (Adding the honey butter is HEAVENLY)

Cajun Seafood Pasta
This was delicious! I used Whole grain fettucini. I also added a teaspoon of cajun seasoning. Added chopped clams and scallops also. Used a bag of Italian cheese instead of swiss. It was outstanding. Also tossed in 2 large cloves of garlic. WONDERFUL!
