Another one has come and gone.  For this mother of five, Halloween has evolved quite a bit over the past 27 years.  Where once this time of year meant burning the midnight oil sewing costumes, visiting the local pumpkin patch and selecting our pumpkins, carving and roasting seeds, decorating… MORE

About this Cook
A wife and mom of five beautiful children who love to eat! I absolutely love living in south Orange County, CA. I enjoy cooking for my family almost everyday. I derive such happiness from feeding people and filling their tummies with good food!
My favorite things to cook
I have a favorite peach cobbler dessert that my hubby loves and it is so easy to make. It puts a smile on anyone's face.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanksgiving dinner, Christmas eve dinner and St. Patricks Day dinner. My husband and kids look forward to these dinners each year.
My cooking triumphs
I cooked a huge prime rib dinner for Christmas last year for a large family dinner (20+) and it was delicious although a couple family members could not get over the very pink meat!
My cooking tragedies
A lemon meringue pie I cooked when I was about 18 years old would not set and it was full of liquid when I cut it. My dad still teases me about this to this day!

Cranberry Nut Stuffing
First off we really liked the nuts in this stuffing, the cranberries, not so much. This recipe is not false advertisement as he states that it is tangy in his description. That being said, if you love the tartness of cranberries you will probably enjoy this stuffing. I used fresh cranberries and cut them in half. I would also add extra rubbed sage and other stuffing spices you enjoy and use the whole can of chicken broth.

Corned Beef-Stuffed Pumpernickel
This dip "grew on my husband". He enjoyed it more as he had more. I don't know why. We did like it but I did add extra garlic powder and a little bit of cayenne powder. It is not something I would make again because their are other dips that I prefer more and if I'm going to eat a high fat appetizer I had better LOVE it. If you do try this out, make sure and remove the paper wrap completely from the corned beef can or the gadget to open it will slip and then you are screwed. Take it from me, it was not a pretty sight by the time I got my can open.
