In todays world so many our discovering that they are allergic to one or more foods.  If not allergic they may be intolerant to the point that they can't eat it.  As a parent of one child who has been blessed with allergies (dairy,egg, and nuts) being the big ones nearly two years ago I've… MORE

People keep denying me cupcakes. Meanies.
Hey everyone I like cupcakes to.
About this Cook
I am a former school librarian and history teacher. Now I stay at home with my daughter and son. After I quit working I started cooking and looking up recipes to fill the void. 20 pounds later I'm actually trying to cut back. But, now try and find healthier options.
My favorite things to cook
My favorite things to cook are main meals. I can't have the same thing in a month's time. Why should I if there are so many options out there? My new favorite thing to do is make spaghetti from scratch instead of a bottle. My world has definitely improved since this wonderful discovery.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Cheez Whiz on celery at Thanksgiving. It's the small memories from childhood that mean a lot to me. I also remember making Christmas candy trays for friends and neighbors during the Christmas season. So I always try and make something homemade to give to neighbors during the holidays.
My cooking triumphs
I won the church Halloween dessert bake-off. A French Apple Pie. Actually won in the apple category and the best tasting desert. Finally making my first real meal of enchilada's taste good enough to eat.
My cooking tragedies
My best friend and I attempted to make a cake from scratch not from a box. It came out lop sided and really ugly especially after we tie dyed frosted it, and named it the ugly cake. Tasted awful to.

Garlicky Salt and Pepper Fries
My fries came out great the kids liked them. The smaller you get them the crispier.

Mini Pizza-dillas
I enjoyed this quite a bit. We did Mozzarella and diced ham for a quick lunch. I made a homemade pasta/pizza sauce for dipping. The kids didn't understand it though compared to the original quasadilla so we need to keep serving them to get the kids opinions as they felt betrayed by the promise of pizza this time around.

Ty's Barbequed Chicken
The BBQ sauce is quite sweet. My husband and young kids have huge sweet tooths so it was a hit. I think a couple shakes of Tabasco will give it the kick I like from BBQ.
