About this Cook
My husband and I LOVE to cook and swear if we won the lottery, we would start a catering company or open a brewery!! WE have 2 kids, 2 boxers, and 3 time is an issue for us. We make a HUGE variety of food and for the most part have received many compliments. We like to cook with alot of flavor and seasoning..but try to make it healthy when we can. Unfortunately...fat is flavor and sometimes, well you just can't help it!!
My favorite things to cook
My husband does ALL the grilling and cookie making..the rest is me ;-)
My favorite family cooking traditions
Try to be different for every occasion..but there are some items requested frequently. We are always looking for other recipes to tweak to our liking too.
My cooking triumphs
The fact I never burnt the house down as a kid should be one!!
My cooking tragedies
First time cooking for the soon to be 'in-laws' including sister and brother We had Beef n Bean Enchiladas and corn cake. For dessert I made my trusty version of bananas foster. Needless to say I messed up one of the liquors and it was so strong that we were all half drunk after we finished!! It would have been fine except my hubby's siblings were 13 & 15..haha
