About this Cook
Soon to be mother of a little boy, I am constantly on the look out to save my family money. I love my crockpot and if I can buy meat in bulk and find tasty ways to make a lot of food for a good price, I am all for it!
My favorite things to cook
Pretty much any pasta dish. Im also a huge fan of pork shoulder being shredded for pulled pork sandwiches. Can't beat the price for the amount of food you get with that! Also, love baking. Im attempting to learn to cook healthier and cleaner, including baking which hasn't been an easy but still finding yummy things to make.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Cooking with cast iron on a gas stove. We are defiantly a left overs friendly house and I dont mind cooking a lot of food that would normally feed 8 people in one go, for my as of right now 2 person house hold. Makes great left overs for husband to take to work, and makes dinner for the next few nights easy and quick to clean up.
My cooking triumphs
So far I dont think I have any. I taught myself pretty much what I know in the kitchen as my own mom also kicked us out when she would start cooking and prepping food. I love her recipes and I enjoy adding my own touch with spices/herbs. Feeding people in my home makes me happy! haha
My cooking tragedies
Oh man, there have been some impressive ones. I made brownies when I first moved to CA from VA, but since I didnt have a baking pan, I used what I thought was a clean cast iron pan (i've done this before, they come out moist and have good chewy edges!!). Well, I popped them into the oven, and when I got them out, they were as hard as a rock, my eggs I added didnt mix in very well and were more or less egg chunks in the batter, and to top it off, when I attempted to taste it to see if I got the recipe right, the cast iron had obviously been used last for cooking onions and peppers because thats exactly what my brownies tasted like. Chocolaty, eggy, onions and peppers.

Tater Tot Casserole I
I love this dish! My mom suggested a bit more, to make it not so much of a 'breakfast' dish, and it worked out very very very well! I used ground beef, instead of sausage Added corn, green beans, peas, and mushrooms, 3 eggs, and more cheese...Boyfriend loves it, I love it, it has become something for a hectic week, or a laid back weekend!
