About this Cook
I previously owned and operated a small baking business. Now I bake (and cook) for fun.
My favorite things to cook
Vegetarian dishes, slow cooked dishes, casseroles, anything with pumpkin in it. And desserts!
My favorite family cooking traditions
The only family cooking tradition that stands out is cookie baking at Christmas time. The baking extends to epic proportions.
My cooking triumphs
That would have to be my desserts. Some favorites have been pumpkin chocolate cheesecake brownies, cheesecake, Italian glazed lemon cookies.
My cooking tragedies
Every once in a while I try out a recipe that doesn't work. I wouldn't really call that a tragedy. That's more of a disappointment.

Balsamic Chicken and Fresh Mozzarella
My husband loved this dish! After marinating, I emptied the vinaigrette and used fresh dressing. I cooked it on the stove top for 15 minutes, then in the oven for another 25 minutes (I used thick filets). with 5 minutes left I put fresh mozzarella on the chicken and sauteed the tomato to soften it up. It's a keeper.

Basic Corn Muffins
It's simple, quick to make and delicious. Definitely a keeper. The only thing I added was 1tsp vanilla.

Extra-Yummy Fluffy Pancakes
These are SO GOOD! I've tried other pancake recipes to mix things up and I always come back to this one because it is consistently delicious. One change I make to it: I add more flour to make the total 1 2/3C flour. It helps thicken up the batter.
