Me and my cowboy
About this Cook
I live in Kokomo, Indiana with my fiance and his 7-year-old son who enjoys my cooking! He says that is because I cook with "SWEET Love", but Daddy cooks with STINKY Love. :)
My favorite things to cook
I am the cheesecake queen! I also love making Italian tomato/meat sauce, Home made pizzas, chicken parmesan, casseroles, Deep Fried Ravioli
My favorite family cooking traditions
I come from a southern family... so all that 'bad-for-you' stuff is what I remember cooking with my grandma. And also making banana pudding... using her green glass mixing bowl.
My cooking triumphs
I've just about perfected my chicken parmesan... I am very good at cheesecakes... and I make a fantastic lasagna (which I can't take credit for b/c I got the recipe on here!)
My cooking tragedies
I can not cook breakfast food to save my life! Unless it is in a casserole. I am NO GOOD at eggs... LOL...

World's Best Pasta Sauce!
I absolutely have to agree. I have made the lasagna several times and it remains my favorite. I do add extra red pepper flakes, b/c I like it 'kicked up' a bit! This is a fantastic meat sauce recipe.

Meatloaf Cordon Bleu
My family really enjoyed this recipe! I used double the cheese - 4 slices of provolone, and 4 slices of swiss. For the topping, I spread some honey french dressing, honey mustard and ketchup on top of the loaf, and covered it for half the cooking time with foil. It was a little on the dry side, which is probably more due to my cantankerous oven. We will definitely make it again!

Corny Ham and Potato Scallop
I baked this in the oven, rather than use the crock pot, and it was terrific!
