My Love!
About this Cook
I am a proud mom to 3 beautiful girls who keep me anything but bored. I also am a very proud Navy wife so please read as I cook on a tight budjet. I love finding new recipes and exchanging old ones. I also love to cook and bake. The kitchen is my favorite place to be because believe that making a home cooked meal every night and gathering around the table at night is what brings a family together. It certainly helps when Daddy is deployed!
My favorite things to cook
Just about anything really. We don't do sea food or vegetarian but everything else is a go. I also love love to bake!
My favorite family cooking traditions
The one thing we hold hard and tight on is that we all sit down at the dinner table every night together.
My cooking triumphs
I was never taught growing up to cook. As a matter of fact we weren't even near the kitchen because "kids just get in the way and make messes in there." I over came my fears of the kitchen and through many avenues have became a very good cook. Now I make sure my girls are right there with me while I am cooking and yes they can make a mess but what fun it is to watch them learn and have fun doing it.
My cooking tragedies
I had many learning to cook by myself but learned from them all and moved on to try again.

Slow Cooker Sweet and Sour Kielbasa
I doubled the meat both out of that is what was needed to feed my family & most recommended by other reviewers. I also went ahead & browned it up a bit to avoid the extra grease you can get from sauce cooking down in a crock pot. I caramelized my onions in the brown sugar & butter then mix the rest of the ingredients just to heat it up but added as others recommended some pineapple & peppers. Then just poured it all in over the meat & let it go on low for about 5 hours or so & YUMMY! Oh & yes I do not ever use ketchup in a recipe like this. I added a real nice tomato sauce until I got the consistency I liked. We served it over a nice jasmine rice & a VERY picky family of 5 gave it 2 thumbs up & 10 stars if they could!
