I know there have been a few readers who, from time to time, would question when the next Formerly Faceless Recipes blog would show up. I have decided to stop writing the blog. The Allrecipes Ambassadors are in charge of giving faces to faceless recipes at this point. Thanks to those who… MORE

Let It Snow!
About this Cook
I have three sons, ages 17, 15, and 13, who are very picky eaters (especially the middle one). Their favorite meal is a bowl of buttered pasta. I try to cook things that they might enjoy trying, but they're not always willing to try new things. My oldest is getting better. He actually eats real food much of the time now! 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.

Chocolate Zucchini Cake IV
Overall the taste is good, but I'm VERY glad I decided to check the cake after 50 minutes. I wish I'd checked it at 40. After 50 minutes it was completely done and even a little dry. If I make this again, I will definitely decrease the baking time.

Heather's Grilled Salmon
This was really delicious! I let it marinate about 2 hours and cooked on an indoor grill (it was 18 degrees outside). Made for a lovely meal served with baked potatoes and sauteed green beans, peppers, and mushrooms.
