About this Cook
Although I've been cooking for a long time, I was a divorced mother of three working full time. So, if you are what you eat, I was cheap, fast and easy for many years. My kids are now mostly grown, I've remarried (to a man who can throw things together and it turns out delicious every time!) and I'm no longer working. Now I have the time to play in the kitchen and I'm having a ball! This website has helped me deceive my husband into believing I am a decent cook. Awesome!
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake, but I also love to fit into my clothes. So, I save the baking for birthdays and major holidays. Originally from the midwest, I moved to New Mexico and developed a real taste for the hot and spicy. I love to make Mexican food and crank up the heat!

Mandarin Almond Salad
This was absolutely delicious! I used a spring mix/spinach combo, ditched the onion and added a few craisins and feta cheese. It looked beautiful and the taste was out of this world. Thank you!

Fuzzy's Chipotle Flank Steak
I've made this many times and my whole family loves it. I do redue chiptles to just one can, and that's perfectly spicy. We slice it thin and make burritos out of it.

Bada Bing Bada Banged Potatoes
My oh my oh my oh my! These were delicious and will be served to my family with many meals to come. Made exactly as written with the exception of squooshing the potatoes. Instead, after 20 minutes in the boiling water, I let them cool a little and quartered them. Absolutely delicious! Thank you!
