About this Cook
I'm a home body most of the time. Even though I love baking, reading, and hate laundry- I find myself spending all my time doing the latter.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake desserts more than cook a meal (even though i enjoy the odd meal too!) but desserts are so much more reward after all the work!
My favorite family cooking traditions
too many things to recall here... food and family share the same place in my heart.
My cooking triumphs
Making a lemon souffle (in a water bath!!) to perfection when I was first married.
My cooking tragedies
Other than burning the odd thing (usually the PAN itself!!) nothing noteworthy so far!

Oatmeal Date Cookies
I have made this three times- turns out amazing every time. I add more dates and use Pecans because i have a lot on hand. Also I use one cup of Large flake oatmeal and one cup of quick oats as well as cinnamon and cloves but this recipe is definitely a keeper!! (I also get 5 dozen using my small cookie scoop.)

Creamy Cinnamon Rice Pudding
Finally, a rice pudding recipe that explains how to temper the eggs, everyone should know how to do this when making rice pudding!! Great recipe!

Peanut Butter Bars I
I made these with 'Wow Butter' since my son is allergic to peanuts but still loves the taste. They turned out fabulous and I use 1 1/2 sticks of butter. I'm making them again tonight!
