My precious gifts from God
About this Cook
I'm a stay-at-home Mom with 3 boys and a beautiful baby girl.
My favorite things to cook
Chili (love to try variations); muffins.
My cooking triumphs
Have yet to have one of these. However, when my husband offers anything other than "It's OK," that really could be considered a "triumph!"
My cooking tragedies
Let me get started: Bocaloaf (meatloaf using Boca), Falafel (I'm not Indian, so I really shouldn't...), anything I've ever tried to "sneak" chickpeas into.

Eggplant Supper Soup
Very nice, hearty recipe. To me, it mimicked a ratatouille style dish, probably because of the Italian seasoning in the tomatoes. Still delicious, and a great way to use up eggplants. I threw the ingredients into the crock pot in the AM, and let it simmer on low all day. Definitely got better the second day.

Almost Eggless Egg Salad
I'm not a vegetarian, but I have vegan family members, which is why I made this. The vegans loved it, and some of the non-vegans, too. They didn't know it wasn't "real" egg salad until I told them. I thought it was "ok," but I was little apprehensive making it (I don't often like what I make). Good alternative to the real thing, though.

Catherine's Spicy Chicken Soup
One of the best meals I've ever made! Served it for a family dinner and everyone raved & raved about how good it was. The only thing I changed was to use some "salsa style fire roasted tomatoes" in place of the salsa (we have a ton of stock, thanks to an obsessed family member ;). The soup got better and better each day we had it for leftovers, too.
