I have no specific way of eating, I have come to that conclusion.  I go through phases of cooking and eating.  I've been through a canning phase, a Greek food phase, a vegan phase, a slow cooker phase, a sauce phase, a make your own dressing phase.  I can't just focus on one aspect of food,… MORE

I change my mind alot, like how I said I was going to be vegetarian.  Um, I fail.  I forgot how much I like meatballs and chicken corn chowder. I missed them, I missed alot of things, I don't want to miss food...I want too improve my food.  So, even though we are likely not become a… MORE

Well, this is funny.   I was a vegetarian from age 16 through age 19. I have always played with the idea of going back to it.  I was practically vegan (the kind that eat nothing to do with animals at all like dairy, eggs and even honey).  I knew all about it and had collections of recipes… MORE

I didn't have alot of ingredients around the house, and I was in a hurry. I decided to make Army SOS Creamed Ground Beef.  I haven't figured out links yet, but I will eventually.  Anyway, to my surprise, my picky 3 year old loved it! I served it over toast with some peas...she didn't eat the… MORE

Be Warned!   I'm Trying to Understand Something!I had my own blog, but it was elsewhere, I never manage it and I constantly change my mind what the blog is about- well, it's always about food- but I never know what.  I started it because I thought it would encourage me to cook better or… MORE

About Me
I'm a married,stay-at-home mom of 3! I like collecting and cooking recipes...obviously.
My favorite things to cook
Chicken anything, slow cooker recipes and anything quick/easy and healthy that will please the husband and the kids!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love the Fall season when we go get pumpkins, squash and apples and make a bunch of great stuff out of them! I am still starting my own family traditions, it will be a fun journey!
My cooking triumphs
I've finally mastered NOT burning eggs and pancakes! I win! I win! I win!
My cooking tragedies
I can't make something without a recipe. If I do something my own way, it usually ends up awful. There was also an incident with red pepper flakes and a volcanic calzone pizza, just tried to make a pizza, and I ended up with an inedible spicy volcano eruption instead.
