If you can't tell by my profile name I am a military spouse. As a military spouse we often are asked to bring something to potlucks, bake something for a bake sale or make a dinner for a family in need.

About this Cook
Hello All:) I am Debbie, wife, mom to 4, volunteer and jack of many trades. I love to cook and bake and take pictures of what I make. I am a foodie and love food and trying out new things. You can find more of my adventures at my blog- www.countrygirlgourmet.com
My favorite things to cook
Do I have to pick one thing as my favorite? It really depends on my mood some days it is cooking up a scrumptious dinner while the next it is baking cupcakes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
From big breakfasts on the weekends to holiday meals food is a big part of so many things in my families life. It brings us together. We work together creating meals just as we sit together when we eat.
My cooking triumphs
Currently Gluten Free Cooking and Baking. While I still cook and bake foods full of gluten for my family and friends, I am gluten free. It scared me at first but now I can make meals and desserts that you cannot even tell are gluten free!
My cooking tragedies
Just keep me away from box mac n cheese or ramen noodles. It isn't a pretty sight.

Sesame Chicken for Slow Cooker
This was very easy to put together and my kids devoured it but for my husband and myself it was only ok. In my opinion it was too sweet. I did sub fresh onion for dried minced onion. Cooking time will vary depending on your slow cooker. Personally mine cooks hot and was done faster than the 3-4 hours on low. I had no issues with the sauce thickening in the crockpot.

Corn with Jalapenos
Very simple recipe but for best results do not microwave. Sauté onion and jalapeño until soft and then add corn. Didn't have pimento so I omitted it.

Corn in a Cup (Elote en Vaso)
Corn in a cup is something we would sell out of at concessions stands for my kid's track team in El Paso. I have to say the basics are there but the crema and lime juice per cup seemed a bit much but this is something that can be customized per a persons taste. Typically from when i've seen corn in a cup sold you can make your cup how you like for the most part. I instead mixed crema and chili powder together and dalloped on top of each cup of corn (and then added the cheese and hot sauce) and topped with a lime wedge to squeeze on top. I also sprinkled Tajin on top instead of salt.
