About this Cook
I'm a wife, and a mom of 2 kids, 3 if you count my husband! I try to eat healthy and organic is a must with chicken, yogurt and eggs. I give veggies and fruit for snacks at school...and my kids love it. I sometimes as if they want pretzels and they usually say no. I sneak veggies into their favorites, like Mac & Cheese...they never know the difference.
My favorite things to cook
Slow cooker recipes because it's so nice to have your meal ready and waiting for you at the end of the day.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Homemade pizza dough, which reminds me of my grandparents. The dough isn't their recipe, though. I feel I'm making our own traditions as my kids grow and ask for certain foods I make.
My cooking triumphs
Venison, which husband brings home from hunting.
My cooking tragedies
I had my apartment building evacuated due to a bubbling-over veggie lasagna. It was very embarrassing. The lasagna ended up tasting great (of course, it was infused with smoke). But, I learned my lesson that certain vegetables release more moisture than others :)

South Carolina She-Crab Soup
Authentic, authentic, authentic. This soup is awesome! I didn't have any sherry, so I used sweet vermouth instead, but followed the recipe to a tee otherwise. It tasted so good. Thanks for sharing.

Vegan Agave Cornbread Muffins
Sorry, but we did not care for these muffins. I will not make again. There was a strange taste to them. I will stick to the traditional corn muffin recipe. I think that's what my family was expecting.

Energy Balls
Yum! What a nice quick, easy, healthy snack the kids will love! I used organic ingredients except for the coconut. What a great little snack for the kids at school. I will definitely be making these again instead of cookies!
