About this Cook
I am a wife, mother, and have a full time job. I like to cook. I use to be more of a "fancy" cook when I was younger. With children I find myself looking for easy dinners to make during the week. On the weekend I have more time to play around with different foods.
My favorite things to cook
Steak, chicken, and fish
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every year on New Year Day I prepare a Prime Rib Roast for my family. We use our best china and silverware. We all take turn stating our goals for the new year, along with what was best the previous year. My husband and I did this before we had kids. The roast was teeny tiny then. We have continued it. The kids seem to enjoy this tradition.
My cooking triumphs
I made Thanksgiving dinner for the first time November 2007. With combined family and friends, there were thirty adults and children. We even had arts and crafts!

Bacon Wrapped New Potatoes
These were fantastic! I used red skin potatoes and half a package of ranch dressing. I also put them on skewers for the grill. I will be making these potatoes again.

San Antonio Chicken Roll Ups
My entire family loved this dinner! My husband said it was AWSOME! I made ranch dip to go with it. The only thing that kept me from giving the meal five stars was that I could not determine a way to keep the cheese inside.

Toasted Coconut, Pecan, and Caramel Pie
My children loved this pie! My oldest said " That was the best pie ever!" This pie is very, very, sweet. The toasted coconut and pecans on top are part of what makes it so good.

Something about the grill's heat brings out the best flavor in the simplest chicken recipe.
