About this Cook
A mother of 5 that's counting 3 sons, 1 cat, and 1 husband. I have twins that are 18 this year. My youngest is 15. I am a military wife. My husband retires this next year I hope. I am back to school presently attenting college. I have lived all over the world. In places that most people pay to go vacationing to. My mother was in the Army and my father In-law was in the Air Force. We are all Texan's. Between both families we have over 50 family members in Texas. Maybe even more then that. We live close enough to the family this time to visit. The first time in 16 years. Our families both cook up a storm. My husband is a natural baker. I like to cook meals rather then bake. My three sons love to cook too. We taught them at a early age to start to cook. My oldest by a minute wants to be a professional chef. I love to socialize (talk).
My favorite things to cook
breakfast burrito, Shepherd pie, butter fish, currywurst, lumpia, teriyaki beef and chicken kabobs, italian sea food pasta, and egg drop soup. We have lived all over the world. We like to many different types of dishes. My kids are pick compared to My husband and myself.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Candy and cookie making with my mom when I was growing up for birthday and christmas gifts. With my family now,it's getting up in the morning on Sundays to go to church and then coming home to make brunch.
My cooking triumphs
Baking anything is eatible. (cake, pie, fruit, pudding, ice cream, etc.)
My cooking tragedies
When my cake for a function that I had made turn out a little mess up.

Egg and Sausage Casserole

Zesty Slow Cooker Chicken Barbecue
Easy to put together with only 5 ingredients. We have made this three times now. It's very kid friend and easy for young cooks to make.

Chicken Tortilla Soup V
Works great for a family of five. takes a little time. the results are worth it. I add less salsa and broth then requires. I have made this many time so I know just how much liquid my family like in the soup. I also adjust the servings on every recipe that needs it so I don't make to much or to little for the family. I also add a can of drain black bean to the soup.
