About this Cook
I learned how to cook from my mom, grandmothers, and various relatives. I also learned some great tips in my foods classes at school. Unfortunately, foods classes are nearly extinct in public education. I guess they figure no one needs to learn how to manage a household, just a corporation.
My favorite things to cook
I like to cook just about anything. I love to use my crockpot in order to get dinner on the table right when I get home from work. I also love to bake goodies.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Favorite family cooking traditions are just spending time together in the kitchen, be it a holiday, or any day. We gather with Grandma & Grandpa every Sunday for dinner.
My cooking triumphs
My husband is good for my cooking ego. He liberally complements nearly everything I cook. My triumphs are the meals I make when all in my family, hubby and three kids, say, "That was really good. Thanks" :)
My cooking tragedies
I once made a Sour Braten for a friend's birthday, and didn't take the lemon slices out of the solution that the meat marinated in. Per the directions for the recipe, I tossed the whole thing, marinade and roast, into the pot to cook, except I didn't remove the lemon slices per instructions (thinking it would add flavor). Needless to say, after cooking in the crockpot forever with the lemon slices, it came out so bitter, it was almost inedible. My DH however, added something to his (sugar I think... lots and lots of sugar) and said it was good...I think he was kidding.

Munchy Crunchy Cookies
I made up these jars last Christmas for my husband to give his co-workers. I substituted holiday (red & green) M&M's for the choc. chips and they really were beautiful. They take some time to put together, but they are well worth the effort...and they're yummy too.
