Cooking Dinner
About this Cook
My name is Tracey Kent. I have 3 kids, Skylar is 9 and she is in 4th grade. She is from a previous relationship. I am now married to a wonderful man, Andy. We have 2 twin boys, Hayden and Reagan who are almost 3 years old. I am a stay at home mom. I love to cook, and I try my best to stay in shape and to keep my family heatlhy and happy
My favorite things to cook
I love to experiment with new recipes. That's why I was so excited to learn about allrecipes.com. I can find anything I am looking for on the website! Well most of the time. I enjoy cooking anything and everything.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I am newly married, and never cooked too much when I was younger. I just sort of started enjoying cooking when I was about 17-18 years old. We don't have any family cooking traditions yet. Of course unless you want to count my first Christmas dinner, here at my house! The food turned out great, but it wasn't ready quite when I expected it to be! But the whole meal was great. All meals are great when you get to share them with family!
My cooking triumphs
My biggest cooking triumph would have to be when I did my first Christmas dinner at my house. It turned out great, and I had a variety of foods. I was able to do some of the preparing and cooking the night before, so I didn't have so much cooking to do on the day of the meal!
My cooking tragedies
I only have one cooking tragedy that i can think of right now. My mom is diabetic, so whenever I can I look for good recipes that are sugar free. I usually go to splenda.com to look for recipes. Well she was coming over for dinner a few weeks ago and I found a recipe for a carrot cake and spent what seemed like forver grating carrots and mixing and beating everything together. I left the cake in the oven about 20 minutes longer then the recipe called for, but when I tried to turn the cake over to get it out of the pan - it wasn't done in the middle and splattered all over me and the stove top. I cleaned up the mess and managed to salvage some of the cake!

Roast Leg of Lamb with Rosemary
This recipe was good, but not my favorite. Next time I think I will use less rosemary and maybe more of my favorite herbs and spices and add a bit more liquid (such as worcestershire or soy sauce), but all around a great recipe. I followed the recipe as it was written except I did not follow the cooking directions. I had marinated the meat for about 12-16 hours, and got up Easter morning at 2 AM, and put the lamb in the oven covered with aluminum foil at 225 degrees and slow cooked it for 8 hours. It came out so juicy, and tender it was falling off of the bone. We could not even slice it! I bake all of my roasts the same way except when I make them in the slow cooker!!

Creamy Broccoli Casserole
I thought this recipe was fantastic. I loved the idea of using cream cheese along with milk instead of the old traditional cheddar and condensed soup. The only thing I did different was added a few of my favorite herbs and spices. This was great because you can really make it your own by adding more flavor!!

Cowboy Casserole
My family has been making a recipe almost identical to this one for years. The only difference is we used a biscuit and baking mix (such as bisquick)for the topping and when the biscuit mixture was browned, we would melt cheddar cheese over the top. I think I'll give it a try with the canned biscuits. Either way, it's a 5 star for me!
