OK, it's the last day of August, and I would say, for the most part, I succeeded in my challenge. My BF took me out to dinner one time, and picked up KFC one time. Other than that, NO eating out, not even for lunch. The only items we picked up at the grocery store were refrigerated items (and… MORE

About this Cook
I'm a single mom with 2 active boys, one just left for college so now I need to learn to cook for 2. I love to use my slowcookers (I have 5 of them, 6 if you count the mini crock) and my bread machine gets used quite often as well.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook anything that my boys will eat. Most of the meals that I cook at home are fairly easy with common ingredients. We have such a busy schedule that most of our meals need to be fairly quick and easy. Although, on occasion, I do enjoy cooking something a little more complicated when time permits.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every Christmas my entire family gets together to make tons of cookies. All of my aunts, cousin's, their kids, my papaw and close friends. Since I live halfway across the country and haven't been able to participate for several years, I started having my own "cookie day" with my friends and their children. I love having everyone over and the smell of all the baking cookies is so homey and comforting.
My cooking triumphs
I consider any meal that my pickiest eater will eat to be a triumph.
My cooking tragedies
I'm sure we've all done this...I was cooking a special meal for a special person in my life and accidentally turned up the wrong burner and burned the main meal to the point that it's inedible. I HATE it when that happens. LOL

My family loves this one. It has been a regular on our menu ever since I found the recipe.

Strawberry Cake II
This review is for the cake only. This was a really tasty strawberry cake. We used a vanilla buttercream for the frosting and used a cream cheese filling in between the layers. I only had enough batter for 2 9" layers and ended up making an additional batch for the 3rd layer. Delicious!
