Healthy living is an important factor in my family's lifestyle.  It is a conscious way of living that is ever evolving.  I have to say that this was not always the case, unfortunately, but I continue to make great strides by taking lots of baby steps.My journey has had many twists and turns… MORE

About this Cook
I'm a mom to 5 great kids and married to my best friend for 26 years. All Recipes has been an amazing source of ideas and inspiration that has refueled my interest in cooking and sparked one in my children.
My favorite things to cook
Anything sweet or covered in tomato sauce! Right now I am in a bread and pastry craze.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We have a family cook off every few months. Everyone finds a recipe on AR or comes up with an idea and we shop, cook and enjoy together. We have had some pretty interesting meals!
My cooking triumphs
Teaching my kids to cook. All 5 kids know how to shop for groceries and put together a few meals. They can bake, too! Now, if they could do their laundry just as well......;-)
My cooking tragedies
Leaving a cake on the table to answer the doorbell and come back to find our 2 Great Danes chowing down on the "OMG-this-took-me-forever-to-make-and-decorate-for-Christmas-dinner" cake! Arghhhhhh!

Morning Delight Quiche
We did enjoy this recipe but I made a few changes. I opted not to use the cilantro (we aren't fans) and I didn't use the sun dried tomatoes. I opted to use some hot-n-spicy, fresh, salsa I had on hand and fresh parsley. I also used egg beaters and Cabot cheese that is lactose free. If I were to make this again I would use sausage that I could crumble as we prefer that texture to the slices of sausage.

Caramel Pecan Shortbread Bars
This was a tough one to review. The taste is good but I had problems with the toppings sticking. Spreading the caramel caused the cookie's top layer to crumble. The nuts crumbled and didn't stick very well. It tasted good enough to try again but I will make a few changes such as layering the caramel to glue it all together.

Chicken and Gnocchi Soup
What a treat this soup was! I adapted it slightly but kept very close to the recipe. I used home made chicken stock, some chopped garlic, I chopped the spinach, used cayenne black pepper blend, home made gnocchi and a bit of fresh thyme. I used lactose free whole milk with great results. The soup was thick, rich and very satisfying on a chilly day. Family thought the soup would also be good using sausage in place of the chicken. So good and easy to put together! Will definitely make again.
