About this Cook
I work in hotel management. I am married to a sweet man, and I love to cook for him. My baby is my 3-legged miniature pinscher-she is a total cutie! I also have 2 step children who are a lot of fun.
My favorite things to cook
Too many to list!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Everyone gets to pick what they want for dinner on their birthday-no limitations!
My cooking triumphs
That I have gotten 2 picky children to appreciate a variety of things. Now a lot of what I cook has been renamed in our house as "Sandy's Famous..." They also request broccoli, zucchini, pesto, and a bunch of things most kids wouldn't even touch.
My cooking tragedies
Not the best at baking-I don't seem to have the patience for exact measurements. Also, I can't make a decent, edible potato salad to save my life. =)

Linguine with Chicken and Vegetables in a Cream Sauce
Tweaked this a little for a lower calorie result. Giving 5 stars because it's a great starter recipe. It was easy to make changes to fit my family's tastes

Kristen's Bacon Ranch Potato Salad
Great recipe! I left out the shredded cheese because I didn't get low fat sour cream and I wanted to cut out some fat. Added the crumbled bacon when it was served so it would add some crunch. I haven't had much success with potato salad in the past, and even though I over cooked the taters this was delicious! I did a half batch and there was a little too much of the Ranch mixture. But I loved this recipe and will be making it over and over again!

Laurie's Shepherd's Pie
Everyone loved this! It was my first time making shepards pie, so I did take the advice of some of the other reviewers and used a third each of a red and orange bell pepper. Also finely minced a few mushrooms and added a beef bullion cube with a half cup of water, a splash of worcestershire, a tbsp of tomato paste, and a little garlic powder. Also put a half cup of colby jack under the potatoes, and cheated on the potatoes by using a box of a roasted garlic. I didn't have a pie crust so I skipped it, but would try it that way too.
