My Beautiful Family
About this Cook
I am a wife, mom of 2, and a full time high school teacher. I love to scrapbook and to make wholesome meals with fresh ingredients.
My favorite things to cook
Salads & chicken dishes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We always have ham for special occasions--because I love my homemade ham soup that comes after! I also make the best deviled eggs.

Broccoli with Garlic Butter and Cashews
I added fresh carrot coins for more nutritional value and color. I substituted sliced almonds since I didn't have any cashews. I also decreased the amount of butter and didn't officially measure the other ingredients, and WOW delish in a pinch.

Steak Tips with Mushroom Sauce
This recipe is great for someone looking for a restaurant style meal on an at home budget. I like to cook and try out new recipes, but I don't consider myself a chef by any stretch of the imagination. This recipe took me to a whole new level of respect in the kitchen! I served it with french bread, sliced tomatoes and mozarella, and potatoes and it was just outstanding! It takes a little while took cook because of the simmering, but it was relatively simple. I will make it again and for guests!
