About this Cook
Unfortunately, I am a cook who has to follow a recipe to make dinner. My husband, on the other hand, can put together sauces that taste wonderful, grab things out of the cabinet and throw together a fantastic dinner. I have to plan during the day what I'm going to cook and use this website faithfully for ideas! My mother died when I was young, therefore, I never had anyone around to teach me how to cook. I raised my young sister so I had to learn to cook at an early age, so I've been in the kitchen for quite some time!
My favorite things to cook
I have to admit, I am a better baker than a cook, but the things I love to cook are anything to do with pasta, vegetables, and chicken. I love easy dishes, since I work full time and have little time to cook. I also love good slow cooker recipes. I wish I could sound more elaborate, but I'm not. I'm just a middle aged woman with little time who enjoys good, easy food!

Artichoke Chicken
I was excited to try this recipe after all the positive reviews. However, I didn't like it and felt it tasted more like an appetizer than the main meal. I did use marinated artichokes rather than the plain and did slice the chicken into strips as many readers stated it took awhile for the chicken to cook. My husband enjoyed it but I will not be making this again.

Apple Crisp II
What's a great way to say goodbye to Summer and hello to Fall? This recipe!! I followed the recipe exactly, except I did followed a reader's suggestion and baked it in a 8x8 pan. I used 8 Granny Smith apples and cut them in thicker chunks. I think next time I'll use a bit less water but other than that, it was fantastic!!! Thanks for a great recipe!!

Delicious, however, next time I will use about a tsp of lime juice vs an entire lime!!!
