About this Cook
I'm a busy wife and mom of 2. I don't have much time to make big, elaborate meals so quick, easy is what I look for most. We just found out my youngest daughter is fructose intolerant...Now THERE'S a confusing dietary restriction to work around. So, life is good, cooking is a journey and I'm enjoying both!
My favorite things to cook
I love making Italian food and also baking cakes and cupcakes to decorate. I also love soups and stews just because they are simple and I can get it going in the crock or on low on the stove then walk away!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Just being in the kitchen with my two girls cooking! I absolutely love it. Although, a nice big gourmet kitchen could make it better :).
My cooking triumphs
Conquering fondant
My cooking tragedies
Well...using fondant...on several occasions

Mountain Mama's Potato Pancakes
These were very simple and fantastic. I followed the directions while mixing but did end up adding about another 1/8 C of flakes in the end because it was too runny. Next time will add more garlic and and chives. I also fried each side longer because they weren't crispy enough for us. Overall we all loved them and will definitely make them again. Thanks for the recipe.

Cranberry Chicken
Amazingly easy, Amazingly tasty! This recipe is a keeper. I did double the soup and wine so there was a bit more of the sauce to top the mashed potatoes I made with it. It was so tasty on top of the potatoes. Rave reviews from my family! Even my husband...he hates stuffing. The cranberries were such a fantastic addition. We love the flavor they add. I will probably add more next time just because they tasted great with it! Definitely a keeper!

Country Apple Dumplings
Truly fantastic. Incredibly easy and quick to prepare. I made some of them with sprinkling cinnamon sugar on the apples before wrapping and some of them without. The ones with the cinnamon sugar on the apples were tastier but both were very good and a big hit! Thank you for a great recipe! Will most definitely be making these again! Update: Made these again this evening. I cut down on the soda this time, decreased the butter so the sugar/brown sugar mixture was a bit thicker. They were perfect...not soggy on the bottom at all. My daughter says, "These are like a treat for the gods!". So scrumptious.
