About this Cook
I'm a wife and mom. I do volunteer work in my community, and always have a book or two that I'm reading. Oh yes, and I love to cook and collect cookbooks.
My favorite things to cook
YUMMY STUFF! For me, food is love, so anything and everything that I prepare for my family is straight from my heart. My guys are easy to please, they love meat and potatoes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom raised me to love food and to love cooking! I'm raising my son the same way. Ever since he could reach the countertops, he's been helping me. He gets to choose two meals a week.
My cooking triumphs
Wow, some days anything is a triumph!
My cooking tragedies
Ack! I haven't made chicken fried steak since a disasterous attempt a few years back. They stuck to the pan and wouldn't turn over and burnt. Needless to say, we went out for dinner that night.

Easy Authentic Mexican Rice
You can also make this with other small shapes of Mexican pasta. I have uploaded a photo showing where I made it with "sopa de ABCs" which is pasta in the shape of the ABCs. You can also use tiny shell pasta. The reason my original recipe didn't include salt is that we are watching our salt intake; hubby has some heart issues, so I am very careful in adding sodium to our meals.

Grilled Lemon Herb Pork Chops
Delicious! Fixed these tonight on the grill and they were excellent. What I love about this recipe is that I had everything already - just a simple marinade and these chops were ready to grill. Yum!

Tonya's Terrific Sloppy Joes
It was really delicious! My 14-year old ate THREE Sloppy Joes, my husband ate one open-faced Sloppy Joe (which is probably the equivalent of TWO) and I ate one. The only complaint that my husband had was that they were a bit dry. Next time, I think I will add a 5-ounce can of tomato sauce and increase the amount of spices so that the flavor isn't diluted.
