About this Cook
I'm married and we have two great kids who are very active in competitive sports (basketball, hockey, soccer)!If you could see my daily calender, you'd think I was completely nuts! But I love every minute of my crazy hectic life! My kids are amazing people and I am so grateful that I have been able to spend so much time with them.... My cooking goal is to create fast, nutritious meals that that the whole family enjoys. We sit down to dinner every night as a family, no matter what the rest of the evening holds (usually running in multiple directions!) It is a tradition that we began when the kids were very little and I look forward to it most in the day, especially now since my babies are now teenagers!
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake! When I have free time, you'll find me in the kitchen with a glass of wine and my favorite jazz station on the radio whipping something up! I also love to try new dinner recipes on the hubby and kids. They're good sports about trying new things!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My cooking traditions centre around the holidays. I bake for every family family holiday. Crowd favorites are pumpkin pie, bake sale lemon bars and carrot cake with cream cheese frosting. I also do tons of baking for all my kids sports teams....from sinfully decadent treats to nutritious pre and post game snacks, I love to do it all!!!! I love a baking challenge....
My cooking triumphs
To me a cooking triumph is when people rave about my creation and ask for the recipe. There is no greater compliment!
My cooking tragedies
The first year my husband and I were married, I hosted a dinner party with our close friends. I decided to make a dish that I'd never tried before (first mistake) I started preparing the recipe before completely reading the ingredients (second mistake) I did not have half of the ingredients needed for the sauce so I ran to the store to get what I needed, with the meat in the oven (third mistake) Unfortunately, I got a flat tire on the way home from the store and by the time I got home (1/2 hour before my guest were due to arrive), the chicken in the oven was completely ruined! So my first dinner party was take out!

White Chocolate Macadamia Cranberry Dreams
Very much enjoyed these! A nice change from tradional chocolate chip cookies. I drizzled mine with melted white chocolate to jazz them up a bit. A keeper for me!

Banana Split Bars
These didn't work for me. Followed recipe to a "T" and they were mushy and bland in the middle. Too bad, I had high hopes for this one!
