About this Cook
I have 3 kids, a husband and a dog. I'm working on my Associates in Teaching Degree and will graduate in 2013. I have been cooking since I was 8 and I love to cook for my family and friends. I cooked for a resterant for awhile and found it to be too demanding for a career. I LOVE to talk food, though.
My favorite things to cook
I love cooking New recipies. I have been searching and experimenting for years and have my own home cookbook. My favorite thing is baking cookies or desert that I know nobody else has tried yet. I can usually tell when a recipie is going to be a hit.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My kids show alot of interest in cooking and baking so I like to find things that they can do. My 4 yr old is pretty good at breaking eggs now. Also, Christmas cookies are always a favorite. This yr, I got my husband to help. It was so fun to teach him my ways. I usually go all out for all of the holidays.
My cooking triumphs
I've created alot of recipies over the yrs. I've got a Rum Cake tradition going that I will not break. Everyone gets Rum Cakes for christmas.
My cooking tragedies
I tried to create a recipie for a contest and it was just not good. I kept making it until finally my husband told me he couldn't eat it anymore. I realized after a month or 2 that I was way out in left field with that one.

Cream Puffs
This was my 1st attempt at making cream puffs. They turned out great. I LOVED the filling. I took the suggestion of another viewer and poked a hole in the top 3 min before they were done, also put mini ch chips in the filling although it would have been heavenly without them. I was hoping they would be a little hard on top and a little sweeter. Just saw a review where they should be 'dried out'. I'll do that next time. Another viewer said to use a TBLS of sugar and 2 tsp of vanilla. I used the sugar and forgot the vanilla. I think the vanilla would have helped. Either way, everyone still LOVED them.

Hard to believe, but many kids will be back in school at the end of the month. Get ready.
