About this Cook
I'll always consider myself a "beginning" level cook! I was never "taught" to cook & I think I'll forever feel in the process of learning. I've cooked out of necessity - which didn't create a love for cooking but I do have a desire to be a better cook. When I apply myself I get good results. I also have a desire that someday my son, when grown, will say "Mom's (such & such dish) is the best." To my surprise, he tells me now that several things I make are better than some pre-packaged version! So I imagine someday a young wife will hear the dreaded words "my mom's is better." ;-) I'll share with her, I promise! So, here am I at allrecipes!

Marie's Easy Slow Cooker Pot Roast
When it comes to easy.slow cooker.pot roast this is pretty much perfection! As far as method/steps go I do hold off a few hours before putting in the veggies. A keeper!

Egg Salad Sandwiches
I had used this recipe some time back and LOVED it but forgot to save it. Recently was asked to make egg salad for a friend (which gives me the excuse to make a big batch - as I'm the only one in the house who LOVES egg salad lol), so I had to go searching for this recipe again and realized not only did I not save it before I also didn't rate it! This recipe produces a lovely, light and fluffy, and very flavorful sandwich spread. I grew up with egg salad that had chopped onion and pickle in it and find this recipe to be superior to that for my taste. No excess watering down from pickle juice, just a subtle hint of onion, and the big fresh boost of flavor from the dill weed... perfection! Definitely saved the recipe this time; will use again and again!

Meatloaf with Fried Onions and Ranch Seasoning
I tripled this recipe so I could use one loaf for dinner and put two in the the freezer for future quick, no-fuss meals. This recipe produces a juicy, moist, flavorful loaf. I did not have the canned fried onions so used pan caramelized fresh onions instead. Will definitely use this recipe again.
