I write this blog for several reasons. One reason is that I love to cook and bake. Another is that I love to take pictures - I take photos of my kids, my pets, nature, and food. Last, I've always felt bad for recipes that didn't have photos. It seems to me that many people "eat with… MORE

Several people have asked for a step-by-step of the Topsy Turvy or Mad Hatter Cake I baked for my son's 13th birthday. I'll give my version, then add a couple of links I used to help me get started.   I started by baking 6 layers and yes, I used box mixes. MORE

I am NOT the first person to blog about these cupcakes. But since I took pictures of the entire process, I'm doing it anyway. I first saw these in the book Hello, Cupcake. I made these cupcakes as a last day/birthday treat  for my second graders. I had a terrific bunch of kids this… MORE

I have three boys. Needless to say, I don't have any hair to braid around here. So I decided to braid some bread instead.   Besides, I've been intrigued with these types of baked goods, so I had to do it out of curiosity.   I started with the Braided Easter Egg Bread recipe, but… MORE

I love lemon. There, I said it. I prefer it to chocolate and most other flavors out there. My family, however, is strictly chocolate and vanilla. I recently volunteered to bake a dessert for a fundraising luncheon for Big Brothers and Big Sisters. As I tried to think of what to bake, I… MORE

What kind of cakes do you bake for a kid who wants to go to culinary school and ultimately own his own pizza joint? A chef's hat and a pizza, of course!The first step was baking the cakes. I used Chocolate Fudge Pound Cake and made 2 8" and one 9" layers. I glued the 8" layers together with… MORE

Apples, apples everywhere. I've been craving Apple Danish, so I picked up some gorgeous Cortlands from Apple Castle, not too far from home.   Don't they look yummy?    Peeled them...   sliced them... Flour, salt, and shortening combine to begin… MORE

About Me
I have three teenage sons who are picky eaters (especially the middle one). I try to cook things that they might enjoy trying, but they're not always willing to try new things. My husband started out a picky eater when we met back in 1986, but he's gotten much better and is willing to try ALMOST anything I make. In my spare time I teach second grade. I have introduced my students to cooking and/or new foods over the years.
My favorite things to cook
I love to try all sorts of new recipes, so I don't really have a favorite thing to cook. I enjoy using fresh ingredients from the garden and canning those ingredients to use year-round. I also enjoy baking treats for my second grade class. I'll try almost anything if I think my family will eat it. Of course, I've been known to try a recipe because I want to, whether they'll eat it or not.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love making the pumpkin pies and other desserts for Thanksgiving. I always like to try one new dessert for each holiday. Baking Christmas cookies is a tradition that goes back as long as I can remember.
My cooking triumphs
I've made some pretty cool cakes for my boys' birthdays. They include a firetruck, baseball, football, and Pokeball. I've also used shaped pans to decorate everything from Barney and Elmo, Power Ranger, Jeff Gordon's #24 racecar, football helmet, a dog and dog house, a monkey, a giant cupcake, and a penguin. Some recent cakes have been a pizza, chef's hat, and Topsy-Turvy (Mad Hatter Cake.) The last one didn't collapse - that was a real triumph! One of my best triumphs has been teaching my boys to cook. They'll never go hungry.
My cooking tragedies
The first time I cooked a turkey I relied on my thermometer to tell when it was done. It wasn't.
