About this Cook
I got married in 2006 to a wonderful guy. We had a son in 2008, so now I'm responsible for feeding all three of us. The addition of our son has encouraged me to try to be a bit more healthy (veggies/fruit in every meal), but its hard between work and all to have time. I love to ride/drive horses, read novels, visit with family, and spend quiet time in the garden/woods.
My favorite things to cook
I have always helped out in the kitchen, but when I got married I was the one that had to work in the kitchen... So I had to learn to be my own task-master pretty quickly. So far I'm most comfortable w/ easy recipes that are tried and true. To my husband's regret, I am most comfortable with chicken! I'm trying to branch out with the help of Allrecipes!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family always gathers around food. Everytime we get together we have a great time eating, drinking, and generally being merry. Even small ocassions (like it'll never be this day in history again) are celebrated! I love it!

BJ's Easy Blackberry Cobbler
This is scrumptious! The sweet tangy berries and wonderful crumble is the perfect mixture! I have to leave out the cinnamon though - I'm allergic. I don't miss it. ;-)

Stuffed Pepper Soup III
I didn't have cilantro (eliminated) or fresh peppers (used a frozen mix of 3 peppers & onion). I also halved the recipe (except for the peppers). I forgot the cheese on top too. However, my husband thought it was good. He thought it needed more peppers to give it that stuffed pepper taste. I thought the potatoes were a bit odd too, but it tasted pretty good. Good enough that I shared it on Facebook!
