When I was younger it seemed such a chore to figure out what I was going to be for Halloween. Most of the time I didn't figure that out until Halloween day, just hours before heading out the door with our pillow cases in hand to gather all our treats. Halloween is much more fun now than it… MORE

About this Cook
I live in a cozy ranch home in the country with my husband of 14 years and my two dogs, Smoky and Molly. I have one son who is 24 years old. I have lived Michigan my whole life. I love to cook and bake but I am limited on what I can make at home for the two of us because my husband doesn't like alot of vegies. I would love to try new things, but I can't eat it all by myself:) I work full time outside of the home. I am addicted to allrecipes.com and cookbooks and cooking magazines. You can usually find me reading my recipe books and if I am online, my husband knows I am drooling over recipes and nothing else!
My favorite things to cook
I really enjoy cooking dinners and desserts. I would have to say my favorites to cook are lasagna and chicken dishes (like Chicken Marsala and Chicken Picatta). I also enjoy making cookies. I love trying new recipes and adding my own personality to them. I am addicted to putting my own spin on recipes I find here.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We have always gone to our family's homes on the holidays, but I always cook a Thanksgiving dinner at home on one of the weekends surrounding Thanksgiving.
My cooking triumphs
I made the best fudge of my life. So creamy and not one bit of graininess. Watch out Mackinaw Island!
My cooking tragedies
I would have to say just recently. I had gotten a new stove with a broiler on the top portion of the oven. I had never used one of these before and I decided to broil steaks in December (2008). I pulled them out to check them and they were not quite done so my husband and I decided to put them back in for a few minutes. I was watching in amazement how the grease was popping up and fireballs were coming down. How dumb was I? Needless to say, right in front of my eyes, the grease on the broiler pan caught fire and it was quite a hectic couple moments in my kitchen that night. I can laugh now, but what was I thinking? Watching fireballs??!! Geez. Tough lessons learned.

Ranch Dressing II
This needs some tweaking to make it a dressing and not a dip. It also seemed to be lacking something. I added some freshly squeezed lemon juice which brightened it up a bit. I also increased the seasonings to give it less than a mayo taste. Even after adding the lemon juice it needed some milk to thin it out (buttermilk would have been good but the addition of the lemon juice helped since I didn't have buttermilk). Even with the additional milk it thickened upon chilling which was still way too thick to be considered a dressing IMO. It also seemed to have a "sticky" texture, coating every piece salad goodness, and not in a good way. While I love homemade ranch this one didn't do it for me.
