About this Cook
I've had the good fortune to be a stay-at-home-mom for the past 25 years. I have 9 children ranging from age 26 being my oldest to age 4 being my youngest. I married my best friend and soul mate and we look forward to growing old together. Life is always an adventure around here but I wouldn't trade for anything.
My favorite things to cook
I LOVE baking just about anything but with all my kids the favorite thing here are COOKIES!!!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I grew up on tomato salada and I continue to make that for all my friends and family and everyone loves it!

Honey-Garlic Slow Cooker Chicken Thighs
I followed the recipe exactly, the only thing I did first was brown my chicken thighs in a little hot oil to get a nice crispy golden crust on it. Then I tossed it all in the crock pot added the sauce. Chicken was tender, juicy and good but a little on the greasy side. The flavor just wasn't Asian enough for me. I think a little ginger & hot sauce would have given it more of that Asian flare. Not bad, but needs tweaking for my personal taste.

Bar-B-Que Sauce
Perfect bbq sauce! It was easy to prepare and tasted sweet & spicy just the way we like it! It's easy to adjust to your own preference by adding more pepper flakes for spicy or more brown sugar for sweet. I didn't have mustard powder on hand so I just used a couple squirts of mustard from the bottle and it tasted great! Thanks for this great recipe!

Chantal's New York Cheesecake
I've tried a few different cheesecake recipes and I like this one the best! It was easy to assemble & it baked perfectly! The cake was rich & creamy and so delicious! I baked it in a water bath pan for 1 hour, then turned off the oven & left it in the oven for another 3 hours. Took it out and refrigerated it overnight. A very impressive, beautiful cheesecake that doesn't taste dry! This is the only recipe I will ever use... everyone raves about my cheesecake! *Note: I added 1/4 cup of sugar to my graham cracker crust and a little extra melted butter. Crust came out perfect!
