Ok, so this blogging this is all new to me.  It's a little scary, I must admit. Anyhow, I was fortunate enough to be chosen as an allstar in October, and then extra fortunate to receive the Reynolds campaign this month.   I have been using Reynolds products forever, and two of  my favorites… MORE

About this Cook
I live in Upstate NY with my 13 year old daughter and husband. My husband started as an over the road truck driver this past year, and it's been a little lonely. I work full time as a mental health therapist, social worker by education. I have been married about 4 years. Since meeting my husband my cooking skills and interets has developed quite a bit. My ex hated food and said if he could have lived by taking a pill alone he would have (instead of eating). So opposite of me. Anyway, my husband loves to try new foods and is open to new recipes. My daughter is growing more picky as she hits the difficult teenage years. So much fun! My husband and I occasionally enjoy cooking together. I am a total animal lover. I have two cats and two boxers.
My favorite things to cook
I like to use my my slow cooker. I think it is so awesome to come home after a hard days work to dinner already made. I like to bake as well, but am have to admit being very fearful of baking anything with yeast. I tend to make at least one new recipe a week to keep things interesting around here. I tend to make a lot of "comfort food" types of dishes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I am Jewish and so I love the Jewish foods.... but have to admit that I don't know how to make most of them. Grandma is still alive and well, but never really taught me how to make Matzo Ball soup, kugel, or other Jewish treats. Boo hoo. I used to love it when my mom would bake homemade cheesebread and homemade soup for dinner. To this day, she says she doesn't know how she made all those homemade meals and "from scratch" dishes while working full time and raising two kids.
My cooking triumphs
I consider it a truimph when I make dinner and they praise my cooking. My daughter is so picky at times, and things she used to love now will complain about eating. So, anytime someone in this house says they really like something, it feels wonderful!
My cooking tragedies
Thank god haven't had too many. I know when I was a kid (my mom loves to tell this story), that I made cookies with 1/2 cup of salt instead of a 1/2 teaspoon. Ha! She said she felt bad, so she tried to eat one anyway.

Easy Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings
Really really good! I used almost a whole can of broth. The directions didn't seen to say at what point to add other half of broth. I put it all in at start. Only other minor change was to add a bunch of frozen peas at the time I put the biscuits in. Family devoured! Even pickiest complainer loved it. Thanks! (I Cooked biscuit/dumplings a bit over 1 hr and they wre done)

Baby Blue Punch
Very good. Big hit at the baby shower. Did not add any sugar, didn't need it. Used Blue Raspberry Lemonade Koolaide. Was delicious. One person probably had like 8 cups.

Slow Cooked Barbeque Pulled Pork
Very very good. I cut the pork shoulder in half, cause the whole thing wouldn't fit (mine was about 8 lbs). So then I halved the spices. Covered with water per recipe. When I had cooked 7 hours it looked good. The broth had become this lovely dark color and I was leery at throwing it out, so I put it aside. I added my BBQ and then a little of the dark colored broth it had cooked it to help it all soak in. I probably added about 1/2 cup. Really really good. Served on nice bulky rolls that I toasted, with coleslaw on the side for me. (and curly fries). Thanks for this recipe!
