About this Cook
Hi! I am a single mom with two beautiful daughters, a teen and a toddler. So needless to say I don't get to cook anything I want. :)lol I would love to find some new recipes that everyone will love, I am in a recipe rut (making the same things over and over).
My cooking triumphs
My Chicken tortilla soup (I have to make it in secret so it doesn't disappear too fast ;)
My cooking tragedies
Ummm... many :)I am not a good cooking multi-tasker.

Make Ahead French Toast
Awesome! Made it for Christmas brunch, only difference was cut the milk to 1/2 cup... it was excellent! I cut the bread down the center lengthwise, then into the 1" inch slices to make it "chunky" looking, worked perfectly. Crispy, not soggy at all, tasty, it was the favorite, and sooo easy. Oh I did toast the pecans before adding to the topping mix. Will be making this again soon. Did I mention how easy it was? :) lol I am not the one to pick a recipe with 20 steps and the simplicity, and making it ahead was just ideal. Thanks for a great recipe!

Hot Crab Dip
AWESOME, just as-is, and when you vary ingredients based on what you have handy. Never have any left. :)
