About this Cook
I'm married with 3 children, 2 grown & married, the last one at home is 16 years old. I love to try out new recipes, but don't get get a chance to do the more involved recipes since I work full time. The weekends are my time to play with recipes, try some complicated ones, and make/freeze dinners for the work week.
My favorite things to cook
Appetizers!! I'm constantly searching appetizer recipes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanksgiving. My Mom used to literally stay up all night getting things done for our big T-Day dinner. One of my sisters & I have long since taken over the cooking for T-Day, but Mom started our tradition. We usually have my siblings, their kids & spouses, a few parents-in-law, parents-in-law siblings gather round the table every Thanksgiving. We're exhausted by the end of the day cooking for 20-26 people, but we love it.
My cooking triumphs
Baking bread. I'm not a baker (at all!) but I tried my hand at baking bread & have had great successes.
My cooking tragedies
Hah! Lots! My problem is I love to try new recipes BUT don't have time to "test" them before I serve to guests. Soooooo, some things work & some don't. I'm ok with that though, I usually make plenty of other stuff so no one goes away hungry!

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup
So good! I usually add more ham for a heartier meal. Very easy & quick meal to prepare for weeknights too.

Spicy Chipotle Turkey Burgers
These burgers were pretty good. I'll make them again, but I'll go a little heavier on the seasonings & chipotle, not quite enough flavor for us as is.
