My Fairytale House
About this Cook
I am married and have a 2 year old son and a baby girl due Aug 11. I work part time and love to cook and bake. It is therapy for me to try new recipes!
My favorite things to cook
Everything, really!! I love to make pie, bread & especially breakfasts. I try to stay away from desserts and am cooking more healthy than ever! It makes a huge difference in our weight and the way we feel!!!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Holidays! I especially love July 4th. We have a BIG small town parade each year and I always have the whole family over for the same cookout each year.
My cooking triumphs
I just recently had great success in making my first apple pie all by myself including the crust. It was a smashing success. My husband and I recently catered a wedding of 250 mostly by ourselves! Hard work, but a HUGE success.
My cooking tragedies
I had one mild one that I can remember. I was making chili soup at a school where I worked and accidently put extra red pepper instead of chili powder just b4 serving because I thought it was a bit flat. Too late....but some did tell me later it was the best chili they ever had. It was the ones who loved spicy things. The rest.....well, dranks lots of water.

Quinoa, Beet, and Arugula Salad
I have made this many times and I prefer to add twice the amount of beets and a bit more sugar to offset he vinegar. I use feta cheese. WINNER!!!!

Black Bean Avocado Salsa
This is very good! I had to add 1 clove of garlic and I ran out of fresh lime juice so I used some lemon juice. Very good!!

Unbelievable Chicken
I used skinless boneless thighs and a bit less sugar. Fried them on the stove in olive oil. Our grill is broke. It was awesome!!!! I will make this again!
