About this Cook
* I always thought I was a terrible cook, but it turns out I was wrong! Savor that, I will never admit it again xD * I have an amazing husband of 6 years and 2 adorably annoying and insanely smart toddler sons (2 and 4), and luckily they are all easy to please (food-wise)
My favorite things to cook
*I love baking. *I've perfected biscuits and sausage gravy. I could eat it everyday.
My favorite family cooking traditions
* My aunt's dinner rolls. No one else can make them like her. I'm serious. NO ONE. * Making sugar cookies for my dad with my grandma. It is the only thing he asks me for at Christmas time.
My cooking triumphs
* I love bisquick biscuits. That's my main 'secret'. They are perfect EVERY time and you can add whatever you want to them. * I make the best 7 layer dip EVER. Just sayin. ;) maybe if you are lucky I'll share my secret recipe ;) * I'm also pretty good at slow cooker pulled pork, we make it for guests and they rave!
My cooking tragedies
* My first biscuits from scratch.. disaster. They baked like cookies and ended up rock hard. * I was making pumpkin pie for a dinner guest, I intended to bake the pie while we ate dinner but I forgot to turn on the oven xD

Cake Balls
Love these. I made my own cake and frosting from scratch, and dipped them using a plastic fork with the 2 middle 'teeth' broken off. I let my sons help decorate with sprinkles. Fun and delicious. I'll make them again and again, cant wait to experiment with different flavors/colors/decorations. :)

Sweet Pumpkin Seeds
I made these tonight, they are delicious! They are crunchy and sweet. I also added pumpkin pie spice. The whole house smells like it. :)

Crab Cakes II
I made these last night, my 4 year old son loved them! Instead of crackers I used Panko crumbs and I added garlic salt and a little steak seasoning. Like a few other reviewers, I had a hard time keeping some of them together, but it seemed to be because the lumps of meat where too big. I just let them break apart in the oil and cooked them the same; those ones were the perfect bite size for my kids :) I ate mine with cocktail sauce and the boys used ketchup (blech lol, kids and ketchup xD) I will definitely make these again :)
