About this Cook
I have 4 girls under the age of 7. My poor husband! The hormones alone may kill him! I love to bake (in fact run a little side line business with them). I also love to cook. Relaxes me!
My favorite things to cook
I like baking cookies and I also like trying to get my kids to eat more than I ever did as a child. I like to try new recipes in the crockpot. Easy and usually more veggies than I can normally squeeze into the girls.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Big Sunday dinners.
My cooking triumphs
I make prime rib once a year and usually it is for my Mom and Dad. It makes me smile when my Mom is constantly telling me how wonderful it is.
My cooking tragedies
I made stew for my husband right after we were married and following the instructions cooked the meat for 1 hour. I bought the wrong meat and we couldn't even bite through it! I recently made a crockpot dish with chicken from a recipe book. We all took one bite and I made grilled cheese for dinner.

G's Flank Steak Marinade
Really, really good! Marinaded overnight and grilled for 7 mins a side. Great recipe because I typically have all the ingredients on hand. I may cut back a little on the soy or switch to low sodium soy. Some bites seemed a little salty. Thanks for a winner! Will definitely make again!

Foolproof Rib Roast
This is the only way I do a rib roast now. I bought a boneless rib roast for the h's birthday (read the label wrong) and cooked as directed. Came out perfectly!!! Love this one! Thanks.
