About this Cook
I'm a stay-at-home mom of two young children and absolutely love to cook. Being named an Allrecipes Allstar has been a thrill and I absolutely love the community of home-cooks I've connected with at Allrecipes!
My favorite things to cook
Bread and ethnic foods. I tend to enjoy lighter fare.
My favorite family cooking traditions
When I was about 8 I asked if I could cook our family's Christmas dinner and my mom agreed to let me. I chose to serve lasagna and mashed potatoes with oatmeal cookies for dessert. The unconventional meal has become a sort of tradition for our family.
My cooking triumphs
:-) Any time I know that what I've made is better than I could get at a restaurant.
My cooking tragedies
I have failed repeatedly at making pita bread and English muffins. Regardless of how simple the recipes look, they never turn out correctly for me.

Light Oat Bread
Very happy with the results, yummy bread that holds together as a sandwich bread. Adapted due to lack of bread machine- mixed lukewarm water, yeast, and brown sugar. Allowed yeast to bloom, about 5 minutes. Added butter. Whisked together remaining ingredients and added a little at a time to wet ingredients. Allowed to rise until doubled in size. Placed in large loaf pan, allowed to rise another 20 minutes. Baked 30 minutes, topped with melted butter.

Harvest Pumpkin Cupcakes
So good!! Doubled the Pumpkin Pie Spice II recipe from this site for use in this recipe and it was wonderful- definitely a keeper! I ended up making 24 regular cupcakes and 12 mini cupcakes and all were perfectly sized.
