About this Cook
I am married and have 2 boys, ages 9 & 7 and 9 month old daughter. They are a handful and keep me on my toes all the time and leave me very little time for meal preparation. Just recently I really started enjoy cooking and learning new things.
My favorite things to cook
Kid friendly meals are my top priority. Slow cooker, pasta dishes and grilling are popular in my house because they are typically quick and easy dishes with little prep and clean up which allows me more time for my family.
My cooking triumphs
When I try something new and it turns out well the first time, usually it takes me making something more than once before I think it turned out well.
My cooking tragedies
Um...there are about a million.

Baked Sweet Potato Sticks
I thought this was great but I needed to add salt and garlic powder to them. I cut them into small chuncks, husband and 7 yr old son LOVED them.

Grandma's Pork Chops in Mushroom Gravy
I thought that sauce/gravy was great, had a ton of flavor and was the perfect thickness. However, I thought the pork chops had very little flavor.

Steak Salad
I just finished this for lunch using left over steak. It was fantastic!! I loved the dressing, it had a ton of flavor without needing to use much. I made the dressing first so the flavors could really sit and mix togther. I omitted the olives (not a fan of them) and added cucumber slices.

Hard to believe, but many kids will be back in school at the end of the month. Get ready.
