About this Cook
I'm Mom to four and Wife to one. I'm a System Administrator by day and a Homemaking Goddess by night.
My favorite things to cook
My specialty is cakes and desserts. I can jam all day and night baking and decorating cakes. Fun, fun! I also like to explore kid friendly meals and love the heck outta my slow-cooker.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My kids get to design their own birthday cakes as well as choose whatever they want for their birthday dinner. We have a lot of fun with this and they've been known to go a little crazy!
My cooking triumphs
A three tier cake with eight satellite cakes, each with lace chocolate overlays. I also won a county contest once and they put my winning cake in a clear box in the middle of a mall.. wild!
My cooking tragedies
Oh boy, finding the toddler sitting on the dining room table eating the giant baby shower cake due to be delivered in less than an hour. I have also accidently swapped salt for sugar and burned things to a toasty black crisp! The best though, was catching the oven on fire on Thanksgiving and having the firefighters save the day (but not the dinner!) :)

Pork Marsala
I made this exactly as the recipe listed and it was very good. The sauce has a wonderful flavor that went perfectly with the natural flavor of the pork. Kids and hubby all loved it and hubby snatched the leftovers for lunch the next day! I'm not a huge pork chop fan but this recipe I will keep and reuse.

Slider-Style Mini Burgers
These little gems are so good! I had five kids gobble them up so fast, (and I doubled the recipe!) I made these exactly like the recipe and served them with dill pickle slices. I used whole wheat dinner rolls, which tasted so great after being toasted in the oven. I'm putting this in my weekly menu rotations. New family favorite!

Beef Nacho Casserole
A great classic to cook for the family. Easy to memorize, ingredients are always on hand, and everyone loves it! My only modifications were using 1 1/2 cups of sour cream and 2 T of mayo (instead of all mayo) and I also threw in a can of black beans. This is really good comfort food and the kids say they like it even better than tacos!
