About this Cook
I love to cook for my Husband and kids. They love being my little guinea pigs when it comes to new recipes. I take pride in making a great meal for my family.
My favorite things to cook
Anything new.. I love trying new recipes. I have to cook for a diabetic so working with new recipes creates challenges.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We have a potluck once a year and show off our cooking skills. You know yours was great when your dish is empty. You know it was the best if it is empty first.
My cooking triumphs
After finding out my husband was diabetic I had to learn how to cook all over again. I am learning something everyday.
My cooking tragedies
First time I made chicken and dumplings after I was first married, my water ran dry under my dumplings so when I poked into the dumplings they poofed and fell into the burnt mush at the bottom.. Being newlyweds my husband didn't want to hurt my feelings and still ate it..I begged him not but he did.. I knew then why I married him. We are still together today 11 years later and He says I am a much better cook now..

Salsa Chicken
Really like this recipe. Made it as recipe says but have also made this several times there after and have done different variations. I have cut the chicken into strips and added green, red, and yellow peppers and onions in the last 10 minutes of baking then put in soft shells with sour cream. Many options to do with this recipe.

No Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies
My son and I made these, Very quick, easy, and oh so good. I followed the recipe exactly as written (was a little worried about the amount of sugar). I used Hersey cocoa powder, country crock light and peter pan creamy peanut butter. Creamy, smooth and just the right amount of chocolate to peanut butter taste. When you bring to a boil becareful not to boil over a high heat to avoid scorching your chocolate. I would recommend these to make with kids,to share, or just because.

Stuffed Pork Chops I
Really enjoyed this recipe. Made it exactly as stated in recipe. The pork was moist and my family really enjoyed the soup part as it tasted like gravy.. I made this again tonight and did make a few changes due to what I had on hand this time I used butterfly pork chops and only had cream of chicken soup on hand and I preferred to have chicken over the mushroom soup (personal taste) this time around I also added salt and pepper for taste before putting the soup mixture on the pork chops. This is a great recipe and will continue to make this for my family. Its a keeper.
