About this Cook
I have been cooking since I was about 11 years old. Sometimes i hear my mom saying it was as soon as I could look into a pot/pan without a stool! Lol I didn't really start expanding my knowledge & experimenting until I got engaged(married in '07). Then just a few years later in 2010. I impressed a neighbor of mine. She was also an owner of a catering company. Who was in the process of starting a reality TV show. In return i got a job offer I couldn't pass up. Not to shabby in my opinion ;) hehe Now a days. I almost never use measuring spoons. Usually all I have to do is use my nose to "taste test". I love making up my own stuff and/or changing ingredients/amounts of ingredients. my husband absolutely loves my food! I often find him bragging about my cooking and how im too modest. I like any recipe with lots of prepping. In my opinion, it makes cooking more fun. Someday in the future I would like to make a cook book, of my recipes with photo's, to give to my daughters.
My favorite things to cook
I love cooking everything. I like trying new things and experimenting.
My cooking triumphs
I got 3rd place in The International Chili Cook Off!!! & Thanksgiving dinners! We all know how hard that meal is to prepare. I am also in the catering business and have had many people come back for thirds telling me they would eat more if they could! It is a bigger compliment then they realize because they are my recipes. :)
My cooking tragedies
::sigh:: Cheddar and broccoli soup.... Baking seems to be my weak spot.... but I'm working on it!!

Grilled Brown Sugar Pork Chops
Absolutely delish! I used fresh ginger and fresh mined garlic. and about 1/2 tsp more of soy sauce. And olive oil works just fine.

Cheesy Ranch Potato Bake
OMG YUM! I'm tellin' you. This was great! Even my husband, who only likes mashed potatoes asked me to make this again. Make sure you cut the potato pieces small. And I used a little more chili powder, added some garlic powder, and only used about 3 tbs of butter (that i also cut into small cubes and spread evenly over the potatoes. Then i mixed the cheese and ranch together and just put on top of the potatoes, and put back in the oven on broil to give the cheese a little golden color.

Rosemary Ranch Chicken Kabobs
Delicious!! I pretty much followed the recipe as written. I added about 1 tsp of garlic powder and only used 1 tsp of salt. Don't forget the sugar! (I would reccomend you marinate it for at least an hour) -I made this with the Cheesy Ranch Potato Bake on this site, with peas. Yummm
