About this Cook
I am officially a newlywed (again)! I am very happy to be married again and have acquired some new picky eaters into the family! I have a daughter who has graduated and moved off to college and have (now) 3 kids living at home. One with a very high dairy allergy. SO....I am always on the lookout for dairy-free recipes that will appeal to an 11-year old! I also have a 4-legged baby, my Golden Retriever, Lady.
My favorite things to cook
I love trying new recipes! It really helps me to have pictures of the items I cook.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Since my mom didn't really show me how to cook, I am really trying to teach my teenage daughter. I think it is important for kids to learn how to cook something other than Macaroni & Cheese (Kraft style!).
My cooking triumphs
I love cooking something new that seemed difficult to prepare or cook and to have my family eat up every last bite!
My cooking tragedies
I had my church group over for a Christmas party and I tried a new technique on turkey and the turkey wasn't ready in time. Needless to say, we wound up getting fast food (fried chicken). I was mortified!

Quick and easy to make! We followed the directions exactly and they were a huge hit! Definitely saving this recipe to make them again!

Grandma's Green Bean Casserole
My family loved this! The sour cream taste is a bit much, may scale it down a bit next time. I had left over bacon and added it to the top of mine and it gave it an interesting taste. Hubby loved that part! Definitely a recipe I will be making again.

Seven Layer Tex Mex Dip
Amazing recipe! We have actually made it into 9-layers with adding white onion and additional sour cream!
