About this Cook
Born and educated in Iowa, I moved to Illinois three years ago for work, and life has hit in full force since then! I've been married not quite two years, am learning how to make a house a home, and with our first baby here, things are sure to keep changing for a while. I love to feed my family well, it is a way I can love and nurture our home.
My favorite things to cook
Anything that keeps my sweet tooth happy. I also enjoy making black beans and rice - it is such a pretty dish to cook that I smile every time all the lovely colors come together in the pan! It is a very tasty and healthy dish.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family loves great food for the holidays. Now that all of us kids are grown, we take turns hosting Thanksgiving, and Christmas is always at our parents. The hostess is responsible for figuring out the menu (and the oven schedule), cooking the meat, and assigns the side dishes to the rest of the family. It takes a lot off the hosts, and making a dish or two doesn't take much effort at all.
My cooking triumphs
Thanksgiving, 2006, in our new home, I cooked a turkey to perfection for the first time ever.
My cooking tragedies
When I was around 10 years old, I thought that since peanut butter and oatmeal mixed well, and that oatmeal and hamburger did too (mom made meatloaf that way, right?) that the three together would make a great hot dish... Well, (predictably) not so much. :)

Ninety Minute Cinnamon Rolls
Good, needs a little tweaking for the baking. Using the full recipe in the muffin cups made a smoky mess in my oven, and rolls rose too big for the cups. Very tasty!

Breakfast Casserole III
Yummy and basic. Errs a bit on the bland side, which is a perfect place to start. Thanks!

Ten Minute Enchilada Sauce
It is *very* easy to burn the flour. It is recommended that you have everything pre-measured as the recipe came together quickly. The sauce seemed oily to me, next time I will halve the oil.
