About this Cook
I try to cook every chance I get. My family knows that I like to try new recipes, and I take my list of ingredients with me every time I go grocery shopping.
My favorite things to cook
Lasagna (my moms recipe)
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanksgiving we always bring a traditional side dish and one new dish. I always make my cream cheese mashed potatoes. One year my new dish was a cranberry sauce I found on all recipes, everybody loved it. Now I have to make it every year. So long, canned Ocean Spray.
My cooking triumphs
When my husband and I were dating, he came over to my house and I made him dinner for the first time. It was a pork dish with a spicy salsa, rice and beans. He says it was the best meal I ever made for him. I have never been able to make it the same way since.
My cooking tragedies
Too many to count

Slow Cooker London Broil
If you want a slow cooker recipe because you really are willing to wait all day then this is the recipe for you. Don't make this if you think canned soup in a recipe is boring. Give it a try if you love comfort food and are on a low budget so you need to purchase cheaper cuts of meat. 8-10 hours on LOW, I repeat, 8-10 hrs on low will produce a roast that turns out easy to shred up. I purchased a cut of meat labeled 'london broil' but it was indeed a cheaper roast. Patience is a virtue here, do not open the lid to check on it. Trust your slow cooker to do its job. Serve over unseasoned rice, mashed potatoes or pasta and be done. The extra salt can be minimized by the suggestions of other reviewers. If you know you need a lower sodium meal use low sodium soups. I used a small can of tomato sauce instead of soup and added a splash of half and half, this turned out fabulous and did not have that purely tomato flavor, just tasted like gravy.

Sweet Potato Bread I
I prefer butter to oil in bread recipes, used 1 stick of Land O Lakes. I also used 1 cup white sugar and 1/3 cup brown sugar (instead of 1 1/2 cups white sugar). It was plenty sweet. I like to add a rounded tsp of spices as well and added 1 tsp vanilla extract. My oh my was this light and sweet. Had enough extra for 12 mini muffins. Thank you!

Cinnabun Cookies
These were addicting. I don't know how else to say it. Sweet, crumbly, melt in your mouth. Yum! I took other reviewers advice and rolled out onto plastic wrap dusted with flour then used the plastic wrap to roll tightly, placed in freezer for 10-15 minutes then sliced and baked without the extra dollop. After they cooled I drizzled with icing. They did not need the icing but it was great either way. Thanks for the keeper!
