Willis and Cricket, our babies
About this Cook
I've been married to Josh going on 4 years. We don't have kids, but have two awesome Schipperke dogs, Willis and Cricket. We are avid cyclists, and love the outdoors. Winters in Iowa are hard on us, but we get by thanks to movie theatres and the invention of Wii!
My favorite things to cook
I am really into marinades for grilling. My husband is a true carnivore, but I'm getting a little more fish into his diet, and he actually likes it! Not to toot my own horn, but I am a darn good baker! I don't bake too often, becuase we'd have to eat it then!
My favorite family cooking traditions
For special occassions, my husband fixes "engagement chicken". It was a special dish he made for me the night he proposed. When it's my turn to make something special for Josh, he's easy. My special meatballs and spaghetti do the trick for him.

Mexican Rice II
I adjusted the ingredients to make the recipe for 10 people for an "Ocho de Mayo" party we had (the 5th was on a Tuesday!). Everyone LOVED the rice. The only change I made was used half white rice, half brown rice. The only reason I did that was becuase it's all I had on hand. Turned out awesome. Everyone asked for the recipe.

Russian Mushroom and Potato Soup
This is really good! I wasn't sure about the dill, but it adds a nice touch. I didn't have a leek, so used a bit of onion instead. I like to make homemade soups in the fall and winter, and this is the perfect addition to my stash!

Clone of a Cinnabon
I'm usually a caramel-pecan roll type of girl. These pretty much have me converted! Amazing. No need to change a thing!

Hard to believe, but many kids will be back in school at the end of the month. Get ready.
