Mommy & Babby
My Family
About this Cook
I have been married for almost 4 years now and I became a mom to my precious baby girl in August of 2008. I am still trying to make meals that my husband considers good food and that go along with our now single income budget.
My favorite things to cook
I like quick and easy meals that I can't mess up. I love comfort food, steak & potatoes, italian, and slow-cooking.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanksgiving and Christmas my whole family cooks together. Not at the same time though! That would be madness! My Dad always cooks the Turkey & gravy or Ham w/ glaze. My sister makes the apple & bacon stuffing, I make the bread and potatoes, and my mom does everything else. My youngest bro makes the salad and my other bro sets the table. Everyone helps out instead of just my mom doing everything.
My cooking triumphs
I made the best breakfast ever and I didn't burn anything! I made a frittata in the oven, bacon, country potatoes and biscuits. It was so good and a lot of fun to make. The best part was my hubby loved everything and was proud of his little wife.
My cooking tragedies
Too many to name, but I guess I will list one. I spent about four hours slaving over the stove to make beef and veggie soup. It took forever and ended up tasting like what I think wet dog food might taste like. I had a little cry because it was just another reciepe that my hubby hated. Josh did take me to dinner though.

Beef Stroganoff III
Oh so good! I love how this recipe does not include cream of something soup! This tastes homemade and comforting. My hubbby is not a fan of mushrooms so I left them out. Also I took help from the store and I used the already cut up ready to stirfry beef from the meat dept. It was so good over buttered egg noddles. I'm going to make this for my mom when she comes to visit next week. :)

Busy Day Chicken Rice Casserole
I grew up with my mom making this meal and it is just too good! I have a very picky hubby so yes, I did make some modifications. First off I browned the chicken breasts in olive oil on high heat (just my preference), I only used cream of celery soup (he hates mushrooms), did not add the can of mushrooms, and used the veggie soup mix instead of the onion mix. Oh, I sprinkled seasoning salt on top before I baked it. It was a comforting meal on a cold rainy night, and best of all my picky guy loved it!

Baked Potato Soup III
This soup is way good! I made only a couple of changes to the recipe; first I cooked the bacon in the same pot I used to make the soup, I drained most of the fat and then added the butter and made the roux. I then deglazed the pan with 2 cups of low sodium chicken broth followed by only 4 cups of milk. I think the bacon and chicken broth gave the soup great flavor. I have tried about 4 other recipes and they always come out tasting like mashed potato soup. I will most definitely make it again.
