This year, we are minus many family members to one destination or another so... the few that are left will gather for an intimate get together this Christmas dinner.  The 30+ attendance is whittled down to 7 adults and 3 kiddos!  Sooooo, we were thinking about setting out … MORE

About this Cook
Well, let's see....I'm 31, 3 kiddos (girl 10, girl 7, boy, 2) & married for 13 years to my high school sweetheart. I grew up in a very small town with my grandma & grandpa, an only child & a tomboy. There's the background, nowadays I'm a conservative housewife. I stayed home for 9 years & then worked for a year or so as a waitress. I was surrounded by teenieboppers...their phones, texting, Myspace, & drama.... Boy was that fun! :o) I quit to take care of my home, kids, & poor neglected husband. 1 year put me sooo far behind! Now I'm addicted to Allrecipes, we hardly ever eat the same meal twice in 2 weeks! :o)
My favorite things to cook
Beef tongue, cuz it's a little weird :o) I get an odd kick out of making mediocre chinese food at home.
My cooking triumphs
Whenever I'm able to make an ingredient from scratch, it's sooo very exciting! You know, the ones we all take for granted...all fully processed & packaged up in their wrappings. I'm always amazed at how simple most of them are to make at home and it always gives me a warm fuzzy feeling to know I pulled it off! Oh, and every time my DH says..."Man honey, this is good!"
My cooking tragedies
Every time I cook it ends in tragedy of one degree or another. I'm really bad about burning myself. I set the oven afire fairly often and am covered in scars from the elbows down. I could get away with murder as I haven't a distinguishable fingerprint to my name. Good thing I'm a nice person :o)

Best Stovetop BBQ Ribs
My family loved this technique and I was very happy with country style pork ribs, which I never am! They always seem dry when baked. These were extremely easy, tender and moist! :) I seasoned the ribs, then seared them in a hot pan in EVOO. After searing, I sautéed garlic in the pan juices then added BBQ sauce, a lil ketchup and, Worcestershire. Returned the ribs to the sauce, added the onions and simmered till tender, about 1.5 hours. I like this much better than crockpot cooking, which always seems to make the meat grainy. Thanks, this will b a weekly dinner for us!!

Chocolate Bar Fondue
This was ahhhmazing!!! I couldn't decide between this one or the Flaming Turtle recipe from The Melting Pot so I mixed the recipes together. I did this one first, except I probably doubled the coffee granuals and skipped the water and sugar, just heated a bit of the cream in the microwave and disolved the coffee in there. Then I added about a 1/2 a cup of caramel ice cream topping and a cup of toasted pecans. In fairness to this recipe, I tasted it before I tweaked and it was perfect. I just wanted caramel and pecans!! We were fishing and fighting for the pecans and the caramel gives a great texture that coats dippers well. I'd serve this to guests either way in a heartbeat, I loved the coffee kick! Thanks! :)

Finnish Kropser (Baked Pancakes)
Ive made this several times and my family adores it! We love sweet crepes on weekend mornings but they are sooooo time consuming and messy, these give that "custardy" texture of the crepes without all of the work! Yay! I add 1 tsp vanilla and I think its important. 400* is best and it only serves my family of 5. I also tried to increase the puff by adding baking powder and it actually makes it puff less. This recipe is perfect as is! Thank you!
