About this Cook
I am a wife, a mother of two sons and two pups. I have been a waitress, a dorm mother at a troubled teen boy's home, a registered nurse, an occasional substitute teacher, and a stay-at-home mother.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake. My sweet tooth is my driving force, but lately I have been getting more interested in actual meal items. Think it is my age showing up. :)
My favorite family cooking traditions
First thing I think of with family traditions, is Oyster stew on Christmas Eve. Been doing this for as long as I can remember. When I married, my husband took on the tradition.

Blueberry Zucchini Bread
So moist and delicious! I did change it slightly though. I used 3 cups of zucchini, a very well rounded tablespoon of cinnamon (I love my cinnamon) and I sprinkled a little cinnamon sugar on the top of the loaves. I will be keeping this recipe in my recipe box! Thanks!

Raspberry Lemon Muffins
My first thought when I saw this recipe was how much I like Raspberry Lemonade to drink. So, I made these muffins and now I can say how much I like to eat Raspberry Lemonade! :) I thought these were delicious and very moist! My small changes to the recipe were that I used one egg instead of the two egg whites, I used about an extra half a cup of raspberries, and I put cinnamon in the sugar for the topping! Will be making again!

Easy Lemon Bars for Junior Chefs
I used a combination to make this dessert. I used this recipe, the review idea from Alene, who reviewed this recipe in July 2008 and my own spin on things. I made my own filling using 5 bananas, a small package of instant pumpkin pudding mix and about 1 cup of milk. Then added the cake mix. After baking, let it cool, spread with banana cream cheese frosting and sprinkle with chopped walnuts. It tasted a lot like banana bread. Very easy though. I will be trying it again, using the lemon and maybe other fillings. I had to use up some bananas though today! :)
