About this Cook
Six kids, two dogs, three horses, lots of cats, several chickens... working on a goat. Tons of fun. Lots of laundry. Not much time. Even less money. No sleep at all.
My favorite things to cook
Any recipe you can make on the cheap, in a hurry, that all the kids will enjoy and is a breeze to clean up after. Well, I can dream, can't I?
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom had even more kids than I do. The only tradition I can remember is "you kids get out of the kitchen" It's a tradition I keep every night.
My cooking triumphs
Hey, just getting all the groceries to fit in the kitchen is a triumph. But I'm proud to say that my daughter has caught the cooking bug and is a good buddy in the kitchen.
My cooking tragedies
Set the oven on fire three years in a row on thanksgiving. Or wait- does that go under the triumphs column?

Chicken Pot Pie III
Fantastic just the way it is, but if you use canned veg and chicken, (I use the Veg-all home-style, big can) you can have the ingredients on hand for up to six weeks, prep time takes ten minutes and there's only one bowl to wash for clean up. Simple enough for my twelve year old to make (and clean up after) and bonus of LOTS of campbell's soup labels (if you use Swanson's Chicken breast and Campbell's soup) to clip for school.

Southern Style Fried Okra
Tasty spin on an old favorite. The onions really give a lovely sweetness. I, too, used a mixture of flour and cornmeal, and it turned out fine. Added a bit of salt and pepper. Grew all my ingredients in my home garden...they're all really easy to do...even in containers.

I HATE GUACAMOLE! I loved this stuff. Onion and garlic flavors, lots of chunks and texture. A delightful blend of spices. MAde my own tortlla chips in the oven and my hubby thought he had gone to heaven. I'm a convert now and am delighted to be able to eat avacados - they're so healthy for you!
