About this Cook
I am a stay at home mom of 3 kids(16, 9, 8). My husband is always telling me to try new things so i have become more confident. Though its easy for me to fall into cooking what I know. I am getting better and more comfortable in cooking.
My cooking triumphs
learning how to use a grill : )
My cooking tragedies
fathers day 2004, I decided to have my parents and my brother and his family over for dinner. I was goona grill my special gourmet burgers. At this time my grilling experience was limited to a few times and only cooking for at the most 5 people. I was feeling confident and wanted to do something nice for all. Everything was going great and about half way into it all of a sudden everything caught on fire. I was away from the grill tending to my side dishes and didn't know it right away. I open the lid and everything was torched... most of it beyond saving. I immediately broke down in tears as they ate it anyway and tried to make me feel better.

Quinoa and Black Beans
This is the first time I have ever eaten or cooked Quinoa. I made this recipe exactly as written as I always do the first time around so I can give the true recipe and author a chance. The one and only thing I did not mentioned was rinse the quinoa before cooking. I thought this was very good and will definately make again. Though the seasonings were not as strong as I had hoped for so I will double the garlic, onion and cayenne pepper. Thanks for sharing.

Sauerkraut Sausage Balls
These are amazing! Time consuming but so worth it. They taste exaclty like what they are... sausage and sauerkraut. I used garlic powder instead of garlic salt because I do not cook with salt when it is in other ingredients. I used a little more sauerkraut as my family loves it. The trick to these is the size too big or too small they will fall apart. I made them all meatball sized and none of them fell apart. I also dredge them in the flour, liquid and bread crumbs and let them settle and create the "shell" before frying. If you like sausage and sauerkraut you will not be disappointed.

Sausage Jalapeno Poppers
WOW!!! I make a version of these on the grill but these are by far our favorite!!! I did not change anything to the recipe however I did make these on 3 different occassions in the last week and found the following to be helpful. they take about 10 minutes longer for the bacon to be done and crispy but the extra cook time makes the jalapenos literally fall apart so the second time we broiled them for a few minutes at the end instead of cooking them longer. next time we are gonna use a whole piece of bacon for each to "seal them in" and grilput em on the grill
