About this Cook
I am very blessed to be able to be a stay-at-home mother where I can focus on my family while my kids are still at home.
My favorite things to cook
I love baking breads and cookies!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanksgiving at our home is very traditional. My husband smokes a turkey and then we bake it in the oven. It turns out wonderfully and goes well with a smokey red wine gravy! We love having distant relatives come stay with us to share in a huge traditional meal with all the trimmings near a warm crackling fire!
My cooking triumphs
I have a few recipes for cakes and cookies where I have substituted some whole wheat flour for regular flour, and olive oil for butter. They turn out great and my kids still gobble them down. I get to feel like I am getting them to eat just a little bit healthier, and they still get their sweets!

Kathy's Delicious Whole Slow Cooker Chicken
I thought this recipe was wonderful! The chicken stayed juicy and had loads of flavor. It fell apart though when removing from the crockpot so don't plan on presenting it whole - but's that's okay for me! My whole family enjoyed it!

Betsy's Mandarin Orange Salad
Great recipe. For the dressing though, I only use 2 T vinegar, 1 T parsley, 1/4 cup oil, 1/2 t salt, pepper, and 1 T Splenda. It cuts down on the calories and oil a bit. I don't use the celery either. Works out great!

Chocolate Chip Orange Zucchini Bread
This bread is great! The combination of chocolate and orange really enhance the recipe. My whole family enjoys it - kids too. I sprinkle some coarse sugar on top before baking to make the crust pretty and a little crunchy!
