The girls and I
About this Cook
I am a mother to two very picky eaters, 4 and 5 year old girls- and to a precious 6 month old boy. I attend school full-time, working towards a degree in professional communication, as well as a degree in business finance. I used to dream of becoming a famous chef, but now just love to cook for my family.
My favorite things to cook
I love spicy foods! Mexican and southern style foods are my favorite to eat, therefore my favorite to cook. My family loves my cooking, but I know I still have a lot to learn. I love to experiment with new foods and tastes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love finding recipes that my little girls can help me cook. They are so picky, but when they can help make it, it opens them up to actually trying something new :)
My cooking tragedies
I just can't find enough recipes using ground beef! That's what my family likes to eat the most, and I can't seem to come up with anything new. We have been stuck with variations of lasagna, spaghetti, hamburgers, tacos, and chili.

Apple Butter I
I used the general idea that this recipe gave....8 apples, 1 cup white sugar, 1 cup brown sugar, 2 tbsp cinnamon. Thats it. Slow cooked for about 10 hours. PERFECT! Not overly sweet, super easy. Thanks for the idea :)

Super-Delicious Zuppa Toscana
I never review any of the these recipes, but I had to add a review here. This turned out perfect. Better than perfect. It was better than the restaurant's version! I will make this again and again!! I followed the recipe exactly.

Upside Down Pumpkin Cake
This is my first review ever, after several years of using this website. I made this for this past Thanksgiving and it was a HUGE hit! Everything about it was perfect and delicious. I followed the recipe exactly, except for one thing; I used a spice cake mix rather than yellow. I didn't line the pan with anything or even spray it with non-stick spray...and the cake came right out without a problem. Topping with whipped cream makes it even better!
