About this Cook
I'm a registered nurse, happy wife of 27 years and mom to two daughters. I love cooking for my family and friends and sharing goodies with my co-workers. So many dishes and so little time to play in my kitchen!
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook almost anything! I like trying new dishes, and new cuisines. I enjoy having friends and family over and pampering them with wholesome foods. I'm not a real strong baker, so I like to challenge myself with new recipes and techniques.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love preparing dishes handed down to me by my Gram. It gives me such a sense of comfort and connection making her dishes, and remembering happy days.
My cooking triumphs
I planned and prepared the teacher's luncheon at my daughters' school....a made from scratch taco bar complete with pork carnitas and refried beans. I was so pleased (and relieved) everything came out perfect....I received many compliments! It was the first time I had ever cooked for 60 people.
My cooking tragedies
I attempted a crockpot macaroni and cheese recipe that came out so horrible my youngest daughter and I ended up eating bread and butter for dinner....hubby and oldest daughter managed to eat the stuff and surprisingly lived to tell about it! Such a waste of good cheese :(

Mushroom Pork Chops
Oh dear, we so wanted to like this recipe! The pork was very dry, and had very little flavor despite using minced garlic (instead of garlic salt). Not the recipe for us.

Very Green Broccoli Soup
A delicious soup, which also has great eye appeal due to the lovely color. I used regular sea salt as I didn't have grey, and skipped the gremolata. Well received by adults and teens! Will definitely make again. Thank you!

Best Ever Slow Cooker Italian Beef Roast
Came home to the smell of this roast ready and waiting as we walked in the door. The meat was tender, delicious and quickly gobbled up by the family. Made exactly as written, I thickened gravy a bit prior to serving. Quick, simple, keeper recipe...thank you!
