About this Cook
I have been using allrecipes.com for several years now and find that is my go-to site whenever I need a recipe or want to try something new. As a wife and a mother, I spent years cooking because it needed to be done; it wasn’t until I started experimenting that I discovered that I truly enjoy cooking and get excited about trying something new or different.
My favorite things to cook
Trying new recipes and ideas - I'll try anything once.
My cooking triumphs
I have made some dishes and bakery goods that would make a chief envious and a restaurant close it doors. But really, when I can get a recipe, dinner or gathering come out as planned or better – now that’s a triumph.
My cooking tragedies
Wow – probably too many to count. Let’s see – just off the top of my head, I’ve misread the salt called for and made a meal that wasn’t fit for human consumption, I’ve made a sauce that would better be used to remove stains from a driveway and rather recently I made a bread that could have been used as a door stop. That’s part of what makes cooking fun :)

Banana Muffins II
Super Yummy Muffins – So Moist. I’ve made these several times now and they are just the best. We substituted the nuts with chocolate chips and added the 1 tsp of vanilla, 1 tsp cinnamon and ¼ tsp of nutmeg. For fluffy muffins, only mix the wet and dry ingredients until combined - moistened, don’t over stir or mix with a mixer. These have come out divine every time. This is now my go to recipe for banana muffins.

Awesome Slow Cooker Pot Roast
This recipe is AWESOME – just like its name says and perfect for a busy day. I used about a 4 lb roast and didn’t brown it. I tossed all the ingredients in the crock pot along with a can of mushrooms and chopped onion. When I came home the house smelled great; I thickened the gravy just a touch and whipped up some mash potatoes – tah dah, dinner was done. The family LOVED it and I was thrilled at only investing about 20 minutes worth of work for a fabulous dinner. Great recipe.

Easy Grape Salad
This is Yummy. The Marshmallow and Cream Cheese are perfect – sweet and creamy without being too sweet. We made the Grape Salad which is delicious and then we made just a batch of the Marshmallow and Cream Cheese with a ½ tsp of Vanilla as a dip for a large fruit bowl appetizer that had various melons, grapes and graham crackers – it was completely wiped out! Kids and Adults both loved it, and it was so simple.
