About this Cook
I am the mother of 3 busy girls (sports, dance, etc.) that loves to cook for her family.
My favorite things to cook
I enjoy baking and appetizers the most. Dinner can be enjoyable when I have time and some one is there to eat it! Two of the girls were vegetarians (for 3 years) but have recently started eating fish and fowl--which made dinner choices much easier!
My favorite family cooking traditions
At Christmas time we bake 10-12 different cookies along with candies and breads to share with family and friends. We have quite a few old family recipes from our heritages...polish, hungarian, and german, and enjoy them still. My grandfather was a chef, and most of my family members enjoy cooking as much as I do---we fight over who gets to make what at get togethers.
My cooking triumphs
Cake decorating and cookie decorating is probably my claim to fame along with my salsa canning, guacamole and various soup recipes...
My cooking tragedies
Cardamom meatballs from a few years back...the kids destroyed the recipe!!

Delicious Black Bean Burritos
This is a huge family favorite and we make it often! Sometimes we use left over chicken and it is still great! DELICIOUS and very easy to make! On crazy days with a lot going on in the evening, I mix a huge batch and let all warm it up as needed.

Chef John's Caramel Chicken
This was absolutely delicious and I had to share it with everyone I know that has an allrecipe account. I served it with fried rice--we all have been fighting over the leftovers. WOW!!!

Colleen's Slow Cooker Jambalaya
We have a Christmas Eve open house and have served this at the last two open houses and it is delicious, easy and well received by our guests! We serve mostly appetizers and desserts but it is nice to have this for those coming from church or parties! Highly recommend it!
