CookinMama

I'm a busy stay at home mom to 3 young children. I live in a house of picky eaters who enjoy bland foods, but humor me and all my attempts to try something new and exciting on them. Cooking and baking are great loves of mine. I read cookbooks for FUN. My favorite room in my home is my kitchen! I love to feed people and wow them with yummy desserts. Sometimes I even wow myself!

Creamy Vanilla Frozen Yogurt

I came up with this when I was trying to find a low-fat and healthy alternative to my nightly ice cream treat. This recipe calls for whole milk, but if you are looking for an even more indulgent, creamy frozen yogurt use heavy cream in place of the milk! I also did not add additional sugar, so it's not very sweet. If you like yours sweeter, add some sugar before pouring into the ice cream maker. This is a basic recipe, so have fun modifying it, using add-ins (like chopped fruit or shaved chocolate) and making it your own!

Hamburger Pouches

This is a dish I gew up eating as a child. My mom worked full time, so we often ate this inexpensive, quick to make and easy to clean up meal. My family rarely eats corn and I only keep it around for this dish. The corn is a must! Jazz it up with your favorite spices and serve with bread. I have small children and I usually make tiny burgers for them, so they get their own pouch. Adjust baking time according to size of potato cubes and burgers. Enjoy!

Gommi's French Toast

This is a handed down recipe from my great grandma, Gommi. I have been eating it since I was a little girl and now I get to make it for my crew! Since it isn't 'light', we eat this every now and then, which makes it a real treat! Serve with butter, fruit or maple syrups, or fruit jams or jellies. Whatever your family likes! I hope you enjoy it as much as my family does! Great served with fresh fruit and bacon or sausage! Indulge yourself by using cinnamon raisin bread or other sweet yeast bread. Please note: this is an old recipe handed down so some things are not exact. Use best judgement.

Amy's CinnaBiscuits

Cinnamom rolls and biscuits unite in this tasty creation of flaky biscuit, butter, cinnamon and sugar--for breakfast or an anytime treat! I make my own biscuit mix using whole pastry flour - but this recipe works great with any biscuit mix!

Snappy Bean Dip

Simple yet tasty! Just 3 ingredients. Takes less than 5 minutes to assemble. Great as a dip or burrito filling. Add your own seasonings if you like, but we love it plain! Serve with your favorite tortilla chips.

Whole Wheat Biscuit Mix

Try this biscuit mix in place of your usual refined all white biscuit mix. Makes great buttermilk biscuits. I use this mix with my recipe for Amy's CinnaBiscuits--delicious!
