About this Cook
I love to make delicious food for my family and try new and unique foods. I like to experiment with different spices and bases. Cooking is an art, you can get as creative as you want with the dishes you create. I love sharing my desserts and dishes with my family and friends. When people are constantly asking you for your recipes, that is definetely a great feeling!
My favorite things to cook
I love cooking different kinds of soups in the Winter, my family loves a good filling soup...Winter comfort food. Casseroles are great too, for working moms like myself, casseroles allow for less cleaning time and more time with the fam. I love trying all kinds of different desserts as well. The possiblilites are endless.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mother is a wonderful cook. I hope one day I can be a quarter as good as her, and that's pushing it. She makes the most divine chocolate eclairs, cookies, casseroles, fine meats, canned goods, you name it, she does it, and does it best. I use a lot of her staple recipes that are quite extraordinary.
My cooking triumphs
Mastering pastries
My cooking tragedies
undercooking a roast-enough said lol.

Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Soup
This stuff is incredible. Hits the spot EVERY time! We make this all the time in the Fall/Winter except we use the Habanero Rotel, which in my opinion gives it a 'medium' heat. We also use the taco seasoning recipe that was mentioned and I add a can of homemade canned tomatoes in lieu of the tomato sauce and some chopped peppers, which is minor. So delicious and flavorful. Perfect topped with sour cream, cheddar cheese and crushed tortilla chips. WINNER!

Big Soft Ginger Cookies
Excellent! Will make time and time again for the holidays! Just take the advice of other reviewers and steer clear of Black Strap Molasses. Other than that, fantastic!
