About this Cook
Im a wife and mom of 2 teenagers and have my own homebased business helping others with their health and finances. Im also thankful for all my Savior, Jesus has done for me. I love to garden, flowers & veggies. We as a family love tent camping around the country, the beauty of creation is amazing to see up close.
My favorite things to cook
I love to try out new recipes, the weirder the better. Bread making is a favorite, it was an aquired skill and worth learning. Cooking for company is fun, daily dinner making not so much.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My kids laugh about how my mom always makes the same thing when they go there, breaded chicken cutlets, mashed potatoes and corn. Guess Ill do that for their kids someday!
My cooking triumphs
Pizza dough, the only reason Ill order pizza and not make it myself depends on how hot it is outside. I've grilled pizza too, except in the rain!
My cooking tragedies
My sister still makes fun of my childhood attempt at fried peaches in grape jelly. Apparently it was quite a mess. I've blocked it from my memory.

Irene's Barbeque Sauce
I loved that this recipe made a sane amount of sauce and I don't need a 2nd fridge to store the unused portion. I had everything on hand which made it my chosen recipe for tonight's dinner. I altered the technique not the ingredients a bit. I pureed the onions and sauteed that mix in the oil and then dumped all the ingredients together and simmered. Looking forward to it on my chicken...it was good on my finger so it must be good on chicken, right?

Mom's Pretzels
This was great. I cut the recipe in 1/2, made 6 of the cutest pretzels! I sprinkled them with salt and sesame seeds and after they baked I brushed them with melted butter. Served it with a beer and gouda soup recipe I found on this site. yummy. :)

Bobbe's Super Cheesy Pasta
This was so good and creamy. I had some leftover gouda from a party and needed to use it up, the other ingredients seem to always be on hand! The only reason I gave it 4 stars and not 5 was I made it about 2 hrs. in advance and the pasta soaked up the sauce and it ended up looking like buttered pasta when I reheated it. The taste was still amazingly good. Just need to remember to make it and serve it immediately in the future.
