About this Cook
I am married and have 3 children, 2 boys and 1 girl. I love to bake and cook and am always on the lookout for easy weeknight suppers. My husband enjoys sharing lunches at work as his friends love the food.
My favorite things to cook
I love cooking everything. Our favorites are Mexican, barbecue, and seafood. I consider baking one of my hobbies and enjoy doing it.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I think Christmas at my mom's is the best. She bakes for weeks before and has a table full of Christmas candies and treats.
My cooking triumphs
After my dad's mother passed I wanted to surprise him with a Whiskey cake like his mom made every Christmas. I asked my mother for the recipe and she said no it's too hard to make. She finally gave it to me and I made it successfully and surprised my dad with it on Christmas. I shared it with my mom and to her surprise it was delicious. I make it every year now.
My cooking tragedies
I tried to make cinnamon rolls for the first time. Instead of using the recipe in the bread maker instruction book I used one from this site. All was going well until it started to rise. It began oozing out of the bread machine and was an awful sticky mess to clean up.

Baked Salmon II
My first attempt at salmon and it came out great. As everyone knows salmon can be pricey so messing it up is not an options. I was a little intimidated at first but have made this recipe a few times now. I find the stated cooking time can be a bit much so I only bake for about 25 mins, when it flakes it's done. Also I marinate in a glass dish covered in foil and bake it that way versus wrapping the salmon in foil. I have done it both ways(foil and covered dish) and find I like the covered dish better for some reason. Definitely easy and delicious.

Minute Steaks with Barbeque Butter Sauce
Loved it!! Made for Valentines day and it was so simple and delicious. The Bbq butter sauce really makes it wonderful. So easy and yummy. Will for sure make it again.

My Favorite Sloppy Joes
Sorry didn't care for these at all. I cut back on the Worcestershire, liquid smoke and mustard but still that's I could taste. So Sorry.
