About this Cook
As with anything - practice makes perfect and this is my philosophy for cooking. I am a a mother, wife and work full-time outside the home - life is busy, but I always find time for my
My favorite things to cook
I like to cook almost anything - although baking isn't really a favorite. My mother was an extraordinary cook - she was known for it and my grandfather was a chef, so cooking is in my blood. I wouldn't say there is one thing to cook that is my favorite - but I love a challenge and I like to ensure my children are aware of the diversity the culinary world has to offer. As my nine year old son says..."you eat with your eyes first"
My cooking triumphs
Truthfully, I consider anything that my children will willingly eat as a triumph! We love to entertain, so for me, it is the most satisfying thing to cook a delicious meal for people we care about and have them enjoy it. Good food, good wine and good friends - this is what life is about.
My cooking tragedies
I'm not sure I would call it a tragedy, but we were hosting a family dinner for about a dozen people, I decided to serve "Foolproof Rib Roast" from the Allrecipes library. This recipe requires the standing rib roast to stay in the oven for 4+ hours - without opening the door! I forgot about this small detail until it came time to roast vegetables and bake appetizers and I realized I couldn't use my oven! Needless to say, our neighbor graciously agreed to let us use their oven!

Sturdy Whipped Cream Frosting
As I was getting ready to frost my daughter's birthday cupcakes, I was informed by my newly minted 7 year old that she no longer likes the usual buttercream frosting that I use. With literally an hour to go before a gaggle of little girls show up for her party, I had to scramble to find a new frosting recipe - and this is where Sturdy Whipped Cream Frosting comes in. I whipped this up in a matter of minutes (pun intended!) and it turned out like a dream! I could easily pipe this on cupcakes with little difficulty (and I am far from a pro!) I followed the recipe exactly with the exception of adding about 1/2 tsp of salt to round out the flavor and the end result easily covered 24 cupcakes with frosting piled high. Thanks so much for a great recipe - this might be my new go-to!

Yum Yum Squares
I made these butter tart squares for my family today and although the kids loved them - hubs and I thought they were a touch on the sweet side. I did alter the recipe slightly by adding about 1/2 tsp salt to the wet ingredients, along with 1 tsp vanilla extract. These squares were dead easy to make...took less than 10 minutes to whip them together, and the end result is very decadent. A note to those who complained of the bottom being dry and crumbly, I let my squares cool completely in the pan before cutting...this is the trick to ensuring the flaky, buttery bottom doesn't fall apart on you! The next time I make these, I will eliminate the brown sugar from the base, and reduce the sugar in the filling by 1/4 cup.

Krista's Sticky Honey Garlic Wings
These wings were really good - even my kids liked them! I used 24 split wings (12 whole wings) and cut the sauce ingredients by 1/3 and it turned out great....nice and sticky sweet!!
