I have been cooking most of my life, starting out for the family while my parents both worked full time. It is sometimes difficult to try new things, because I don't have open-minded taste buds! I usually stick to the tried and true, but this site gave me inspiration to think outside the cans! I am working on opening my own cake shop in the next couple of years, and for now I make specialty cakes and sweet treats out of my home.

Cashew Caramel Corn

My grandma used to make this long ago, usually around Halloween, and we would roll it into balls.

Just like Mom's Swedish Meatballs

This is a classic recipe just like Mom used to make. The nutmeg is the key to great flavor.

This is a dish similar to one I had at restaurant in France on vacation.

Homemade Cooked Eggnog

"This is for those that don't like a lot of spices, like myself, especially cinnamon. This is a very simple recipe, with great flavor. It is a cooked recipe for those that don't like raw eggs, so allow for a long chill time."

Chicken Garlic Lasagna Rolls

These were inspired by a local pizza joint's famous Chicken Garlic Pizza. I created these because I wanted something other than a red pasta sauce. The directions are for a microwave but you can bake in the oven as well. They are great for potlucks.

Creamy Broccoli Soup

This is a creamy soup made with fresh broccoli, and the cornstarch instead of flour makes it light. This recipe is 2 good servings that can be served before dinner, or with some crusty bread as a meal.
