About this Cook
I love to cook, but now that I am married to a guy that REALLY loves to cook, I have passed that baton to him and now I focus on baking, which is really my favorite thing to do. I have two little ones and now that the older one is 3 years old she has become my kitchen helper when I bake. She insists on wearing her little apron and I'm proud to say that she can crack an egg into a bowl without losing any shell! I also have a blog at www.wingingitinthewindycity.blogspot.com
My favorite things to cook
Pizza (simply because I have perfected my homemade crust!) and just about any kind of pastry, cookie or cake.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every year I have a Holiday Cookie Exchange with all my friends. This has been an annual tradition since 1992 and the cookies are getting better every year (having a contest for Best Cookie helps!)
My cooking triumphs
I made a Buche de Noel a few Christmas ago (my first attempt) and it was beautiful! The meringue mushrooms really DID look just like mushrooms - I felt like such an artist :-)
My cooking tragedies
Anything that I have tried to make for the first time when I'm having guests over (WHY do I do that again and again??) and have been sorely disappointed in the results.

Homesteader Cornbread
Yum! A nice, sweet cornbread. Light. I put it in my mixer and beat it for appx 5 min based on what others said.

French Onion Soup Gratinee
This was delicious! My hubby gave it 4 3/4 stars b/c I didn't have red wine and just added additional broth. I used 1/2 t ground thyme in lieu of fresh. The soup was on the sweet side (and I used a combination of red and yellow onion - no sweet onion) but I thought it was delicious, rich and warm. So glad I tried this! P.S. I just realized I forgot the salt when carmelizing the onions - maybe the lack of salt contributed to the overall sweetness? Next time I'll remember that and also use red wine.
