About this Cook
Cooking is my passion. I'm no restaurant chef but I love coming up with new and creative recipes for my family to enjoy. As a working mom, I specialize in easy home cooked recipes that keep me away from prepackaged foods as much as possible. Around the holidays and for special occasions I love to dabble in making fabulous desserts!
My favorite things to cook
Everything! I love a challenge and I love to adapt recipes to fit my lifestyle.
My cooking triumphs
My husband says that my cheesecake is the best he's ever had!

Cheddar-Thyme Flaky Biscuits
I love these! The only modifications I made to this recipe was using dried thyme, as I did not have any fresh on hand, and using a gluten free baking mix (Pamela's) as I do not eat gluten. While the biscuits did not rise as much as they would have done if I had used regular wheat flour the texture was great and the flavor was superb! I also used the tip of grating the butter into the flour mixture and I sifted my dry ingredients to help lighten the dough. Perfection!

Mrs. Sigg's Snickerdoodles
This recipe is great! Make sure you have fresh baking soda and also refrigerating the dough for an hour before scooping and baking helps keep them from falling flat. I actually made a pumpkin spice version, replacing the shortening with 3/4 cup pumpkin puree and using pumpkin pie spice instead of cinnamon. They were great!

Slow Cooker Apple Cider Braised Pork
Just made this tonight for my husband and I and we could not stop picking at the leftover pork! I used a smaller roast but kept the other measurements the same. I didn't have shallots so I subbed a yellow onion, sliced, and I added some chopped carrots to the sautee of onion and celery. I used an apple-ginger hard cider instead of just plain apple cider and I sliced two garlic cloves for the cooking liquid instead of using four whole cloves. I also skipped the cayenne in the sauce and I liked it just fine. I served mine with roasted carrots and creamed kale. Delicious!
