About this Cook
I am a wife and mom of four who loves taking care of my family and our home.
My favorite things to cook
I love to feed my family healthy and home cooked 'clean eating' meals. I don't mind making most of every thing from scratch. I enjoy being streamlined and organized and I plan my meals weekly - doing one large trip to the grocery store. I enjoy smaller stores, such as Trader Joes and the Farmers Markets, focusing on local and seasonal foods.
My favorite family cooking traditions
baking scones and bread in the colder months. We love Pizza night at home, making our own pizza dough and creating fun pizzas with our favorite toppings.

Oven Pot Roast
OK, This was seriously amazing! The 'sauce' is what makes this pot roast stand apart from all the others I have made the last 20 years of my trial and error cooking adventures. the only thing I would do different the next time I make this (and I will be making this again and again) is that I will triple the sauce. Aside from that, this was the best pot roast we have ever had and by far the best I have ever made. My hubby and kids (picky eaters, ages 14, 8 and 6) absolutely loved it and wanted more 'gravy' but we were scraping the bowl clean (read to mean 'LICKING' the plates, lol) I made no changes at all, aside from adding new potatoes, carrots and a sliced onion the last hour of cooking time. The only thing I will change for next time is that I will double or triple the sauce recipe. I will probably be coming up with different ways to add this sauce to other meat recipes. It tasted amazing over roasted potatoes.

Tzatziki Sauce I
My husband was raised on Tzatziki sauce, so he is pretty picky and likes it authentic tasting. I followed this recipe to a TEE and he loved it. my kids loved it too. I served it with broiled marinated Chicken ( my chicken had a slight 'kick' to it, so this sauce was a perfect pairing ) I used pizza dough and baked it on my griddle at 450 degrees instead of the usual pita bread. This dinner was a hit. I will make this recipe every time!

Easy Vodka Sauce
LOVE this recipe. so easy to make. I tweak it to make it a bit more calorie friendly. I use a tbl of olive oil instead of butter. I add a shallot, red onion, fresh rosemary and dried sage as well as minced garlic to the olive oil. I also add whatever 'marinara' sauce I happen to have on hand plus organic diced tomatoes. I add fat free half and half instead of the cream. Always delicious! A keeper.
