About this Cook
I'm a wife and mother of 4.
My favorite things to cook
I enjoy baking bread but rarely have time these days. I make alot of "mexican" syle foods. I use ALOT of Garlic and onion in my recipes. We like stuff spicy (but not HOT and spicy)so be forewarned!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My grandmothers Saturday morning doughnuts, stuffing (at every holiday), jam bars and punch at Christmas, popcorn balls every Halloween. Baking Christmas cookies with my mom as a child and my nieces (before my daughter was born - now we all do it together). My other grandmothers wonderful variety of baked breads and her love of gardening. I hope I can pass those ALL along to my children!
My cooking triumphs
Hmmm. I make a MEAN pizza dough!! My kids love pizza night. We make "personal pan pizzas" in my cast iron frying pans. MMMMM!!
My cooking tragedies
I just started experimenting with my pizza dough recipe and added WAY too much salt - came out like a board!! Oh and the time I accidentally used cayenne instead of paprika in my Goulash recipe! What a waste! No one could eat it with 2 TABLESPOONS of Cayenne. I can't make gravy, pie crust or biscuits to save my life though. Every once in a while I give it a try but I just can't seem to get the knack of it. UPDATE!!! - I have mastered gravy making!!! Woo hoo!!!!

Golden Pork Chops
Good recipe - I would advise NOT using thin chops in this recipe as they overcook by the time the sauce is hot. I ended up using 1 Golden mushroom and 1 Cream of mushroom which left the sauce a tad bland for my tastes but if I were to use just the golden mushroom it would have been much better. I also did this in the skillet rather than baking it.

Savory Chicken Breasts
This was so easy and tastes amazing. I used stuffing mix instead of bread crumbs and spread herbs (poultry seasoning - thyme, sage, rosemary, cracked black pepper, sea salt) on the chicken before I put the cheese on. This a going in our regular rotation. If you don't like swiss cheese try substituting whatever cheese you DO like - the dish is very versatile and easy to prepare. I served this over egg noodles with sweet peas on the side but it could easily be served with white or wild rice and the veggies could be layered in the pan on top of the cheese (but under the sauce) if you want - again, this sauce is versatile enough that you could use any veggie you choose - peas, corn, broccoli, even a bit of spinach.

Best London Broil Ever!
Bland, came out very watery and had no taste to it. The tomato taste was 'different' and I could see incorporating it into a different dish but by itself it was just... bland
