About this Cook
I am a mother of four, homeschooler, and work part-time as an RN in the ICU and ER.
My favorite things to cook
My favorite things to cook are my favorite things to eat. I'm always trying new things and inventing and adapting recipes. I like crock pot recipes and casseroles that I can double and freeze for later. With my busy lifestyle I want convenience but wholesome food for my family.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Due to my work schedule my husband has made every Thanksgiving turkey dinner we have hosted. My mom has taught me how to make the lamb curry dinner we eat for Easter at her house. My favorite thing to make for holidays are baked goods - pies for Thanksgiving, cut-out cookies for Christmas, and grandma's Polish sweet bread at Easter.
My cooking triumphs
Any time my family enjoys a peaceful, nutritious family meal.

Hunnybunch's Special Apple Muffins
Great breakfast muffin! I only used half the sugar and substituted applesauce for half the oil and they were plenty sweet. The kids loved them and they were a great way to use up apples we had bought that were a bit tart for just eating. This is definitely a recipe that would be best with crisp tart apples rather than softer apples.

Overnight Blueberry French Toast
We had this for Christmas breakfast. I couldn't find fresh blueberries at a good price so I used frozen mixed berries and it came out great. Like others, I used day-old Italian bread. I topped it with the hot berry topping right out of the oven and it was perfect. This might be good for making ahead and freezing for an easy Sunday brunches, and would be great for Easter breakfast potluck at church.

Carrot Muffins
This made a great beakfast for my kids. These were not too sweet. I turned up the spices a bit and substituted apple for half the carrot, just because I had apples to use up. I was sad I didn't have walnuts, but pumpkin seeds made a good substitute. Definitely will make again.
