Me & Mommy
About this Cook
I have four amazing daughters and a (step)son. My children's ages range from 16 to 4 mos. Being a mommy is my greatest triumph. Career-wise, I've mostly done bookkeeping and clerical work. I'm an eBay fanatic.
My favorite things to cook
Anything in the slow cooker! It's nearly impossible to mess up a slow cooker recipe. Anything Italian. I could live on pizza and pasta. That being said, my husband, the carnivore, cannot. :-(
My cooking triumphs
I make a killer Ragu Chicken with a Julia Child recipe. I learned a lot from some of her cookbooks.
My cooking tragedies
Wow, where to begin there?

Frijoles I
Okay, so I've tried to make this one twice this week already. I checked the recipe several times and all I can figure is I must need to COVER the pot while simmering because the beans are still way too chewy!

Slow Cooker Chicken with Mushroom Wine Sauce
Tried this one. Took the advice of spicing it up with white wine & also made sure to mix in the rice with the soup so it wouldn't be hard. The taste was kinda bland like chicken & dumplings. My husband keeps joking about how I made him that "gourmet" chicken.

Steak Marinade
I'm not much of a red meat lover at all. My family and I couldn't get enough of this steak even though we need to buy cheaper cuts of meat. I couldn't believe how flavorful it was and made it again shortly afterward.
