About this Cook
I'm an imperfect follower of the perfect, risen Lord Jesus Christ, SAHM/small business owner with 4 children, married since 2000 to my best friend, published author, avid reader, trying to get my thumb to turn green, sewer, quilter...a little bit of everything to everyone.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake and learn new ways to make healthy meals. I prefer to cook from scratch and I would love to expand my recipe collection of side dishes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Christmas/Thanksgiving cooking is my favorite. I love to cook a huge meal for lots of people and watch them enjoy it.
My cooking triumphs
Ribs, chocolate chip cookies
My cooking tragedies
Sugar cookies, lasagna until recently (finally got it right!)

Simple White Cake
I just took this out of the pan. I think it turned out great! Very spongy & light, tastes good. Not terribly sweet but flavorful. I used 1 TBSP vanilla and used 1c buttermilk like some of the reviews suggested.

Gourmet Sweet Potato Classic
This was fantastic! I melted marshmallows on top and used the crumble topping. Best stuff I've ever eaten and can't wait to make this again.

Best Brownies
These were fantastic! I will say I was a bit disappointed that they were crumbly on the bottom but that won't keep me from making them again. I will likely use less sugar, some applesauce & a bit more flour next go round. Also, I only used 2/3 c confectioners sugar for the icing and that was plenty, though I did need to add water. I also made my batch with white chocolate chips for an extra touch.

Pile it into a tomato half, load it into a wrap, or spread it on bread. Chicken salad does it all.

Broccoli salad makes a great side dish or a light main dish on a warm night.
