About this Cook
I'm a Mother/Baby RN working in Tacoma, Wa. on the night shift. I have been married 9years and we have 5 children together, the youngest 3 still live at home and they are 12, 8, and 4. My husband gets to be the stay at home dad and I get to do all the cooking! I do love to cook on my off days and working 12 hr. shifts means my kids and hubby are "on their own" for 3 days a week!
My favorite things to cook
I lOVE pasta, pizza, steaks, sea food, and i lOVE to try new recipes out! I love my slow cooker for making chili and stew/roasts, even for making barbeque ribs or roasts. I really LOVE chowder be it corn or clam and home made chowder is the best! Pizza's are really fun to make and you can be really creative! Of course you got to have deserts and i LOVE anything Cheesecake!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I'm got to make my Crock Pot Stuffing for Thanksgiving, its better then ANY boxed stuffing or any other stuffing i've ever had!
My cooking triumphs
I LOVE my Savory Fetta Meat pies, they are to DIE for! My kids are always asking for those!
My cooking tragedies
Trying to make spinich artichoke dip, it came out SOOOOOO super greasy, it was virtually unedible.

Southern Pimento Cheese
Oh this was fabulous! Did put the cayanne in but left the jalopenio pepper and it did give it quite a kick! Might leave out next time as i can't eat and drink at the same time ;) It made quite a bit too! I subbed with greek yogurt cream cheese for some added protein and it tasted just like regular cream cheese :) After doubling this recipe and making wraps with most of it, i had some left over so stuffed some chicken breasts with it, coated the breasts with honey mustard and then "shake and bake" prezel topping and baked chicken for 60min on 400 and it was SOOOOO good!! Will deffinatly make again!!

Spinach, Sausage and Cheese Bake
This was really good! Made as directed and turned out fabulously! Even my picky eaters loved it!! Great way to serve up some spinach and using fat free cottage cheese and turkey sausage made for a lower fat recipe! :)

White Chocolate Cheesecake with White Chocolate Brandy Sauce
This is a fabulous recipe! To make it more family freindly, i added the brandy to the cake then cooked out the alchole and felt it didn't need the added calories/chocolate with all that drizzle and was fabulous enough by itself!! Even used weight watchers cream cheese to make it lighter ;) DELISH!!
