About this Cook
I used to sell Pampered Chef as a consultant. I love their tools and that is what got me started learning to cook various things and not being afraid of it. I have three kids and love staying home with them. It is fun to find new quick recipes that we will all enjoy. My husband is picky so if I can get him to eat it; i have succeeded. I chop onions and vegetables up in my food chopper to sneak them in recipes so my family will eat them. If they see it, they will not even try it.
My favorite things to cook
Italian food and any breakfast foods because they are my favorites.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Holidays are times when we cook the traditional foods and all come together.
My cooking triumphs
I just found the perfect alfredo sauce on this website and I no longer have to go out to eat to get it. I never thought I could make it that well.
My cooking tragedies
I have forgotten cheese in a few recipes and tried to fry something once and burned my grandmothers kitchen because the grease caught fire. No one was hurt thank goodness.

Cheesy Creamed Spinach
This was awesome but I just used things I had at home. I used whole milk to make this and only used about a cup. I never have cream so I wanted to make sure it was okay to use just milk. I used 2 cloves of fresh garlic, just a little minced onion, and salt and pepper to taste in a saucepan on the stove in the milk. I wilted the fresh spinach in the microwave for like 2 1/2 minutes in a steamer. I chopped it up and added it to the milk mixture. I just kept cooking more spinach until it looked like enough. I had a huge bag though so that is why I could just keep doing that. I sprinkled parmesan cheese on the top and it was perfect. Thanks for the starter recipe.

Fresh Blueberry Pie II
I love blueberry pie so I tried this recipe. It is excellent. I did add 1/4 tsp. almond extract, 1/8 tsp Double Strength Vanilla, 1/4 tsp cinnamon to the flour, lemon juice and sugar. I only mixed this for a minute and then added the blueberries. I will add more blueberries next time. I cooked this for about 10 minutes constantly stirring with a whisk. You don't want it to burn. Cook the pie crust about 30 minutes before you are ready to make this mixture. I used fresh blueberries that I had in the freezer. They turned out great. Thanks so much for the recipe. I did not put another pie crust on top like the picture. It takes no time to make this. I could really impress by taking this somewhere.

The best wintertime meals need a long, slow simmer while you're doing something else.
