About this Cook
I'm newly transplanted to Central Texas from West Texas. I am the mom of 3 amazing kids and the fiance to one phenomenal man. Looking into more natural ways of life, but yet still willing to throw in some junk food *smile*
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook italian. I also love to bake and did cake decorating for awhile until my hands started bothering me from it. Every week I send some new treats to my dear fiance's co workers. I missed a week and they asked him what he did to tick me off!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love doing the Christmas baking. My kids and I get out all the cookbooks and everyone picks their favorites for what they want me to make as far as the cookies and candies of the season. My wonderful middle child has decided he wants to be a chef when he grows up so we have been cooking more and more together and this warms my heart.
My cooking triumphs
I made some totally cute cream cheese penguins for my daughter's 7th birthday party and I was the coolest mom ever! I think anytime you can get all 3 children to eat and enjoy what you've made for dinner, that's a triumph!
My cooking tragedies
I can't cook rice to save my life. It's really funny because I can cook very complicated dishes, but can't manage to make rice nice and fluffy without scorching the bottom.

Out of this World Turkey Brine
LOVE THIS BRINE! I have been cooking turkeys for 20 years and this was by far the best I have ever made. Thank you so much for sharing.

Spaghetti Tacos
I made these for my kids as well. The star rating will vary based on the type of spaghetti sauce you use. Not something I want often, but it made my kids smile and that's what it's all about!
