About this Cook
I've been cooking since I was about 12 and love trying new recipes, as well as creating some of my own.
My favorite things to cook
Anything pasta. Love making desserts and such from scratch.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My kids love being in the kitchen with me and it has really helped them WANT to try new things- just because they made it :)
My cooking triumphs
I can make just about anything taste good WITHOUT frying it now.
My cooking tragedies
My first meatloaf 10 years ago...It wasn't even edible.

Chicken and Biscuit Casserole
We really enjoyed this dish. I added canned corn and diced potatoes to the veggies and used frozen peas instead of canned. I also added poultry seasoning to the "soup" and shredded cheddar cheese to the biscuit mix, which I doubled. It was a bit of work, so I think next time I will make the soup portion in the crock pot and make the biscuits separate just before serving.

Deliciously Healthy Paleo Pancakes With Banana and Walnuts
My kids wanted pancakes as a bedtime snack, so I wanted a healthier version. This was perfect. My six year old made the batter (we halved it, but it still made more than a dozen pancakes) and we added about 1/2 cup of oats to help it hold together. I didn't have walnuts, but we added blueberries. I do agree that cooking longer on a lower heat is the way to go. The first batch fell apart, but the rest came out perfect once I adjusted the heat. We loved them and we will be making this again.

All-Day Apple Butter
My kids and I made this to go with our lesson on Johnny Appleseed. This was very simple and came out great! We doubled the cinnamon, added allspice and nutmeg and reduced the white sugar to 1.5c and added 1c of brown sugar. Our crock pot would not hold all 5.5lbs of chopped apples, so we were only able to get about 2.5 pints apple butter after all was said and done. It did take about 16 hours for the total cook time.
