I love to cook I just don't like to decide what to cook!!! I have 3 children 6,3,and 1 and a wonderful husbad. Life is hectic! I'm highly involved in my church and I'm an accomplished Mary Kay consultat!!!
My favorite things to cook
Chicken Tortillia soup...my own recipe that I personalized from another recipe. Lately I've really been into stir fry! I LOVE crock pot recipes because they are so simple for a busy day!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family favorites are potato casserole and orange salad made with cottage cheesse and orange jello among a couple of other ingredients! I really need to submit that one:)
My cooking triumphs
Growing up all I ever remember having or dinner is baked chicken or spaghetti! My Mom hates to cook therefore she never taught me how. When i got married all I knew how to make was spagetti or hamburger helper! I didn't even have chicken figured out! Hubby got me started with some basic suggestions (he did know how to cook) and I found allrecipes.com and went wild! I love to cook now thanks to allrecipes.com! It's not the only place I get my recipes anymore but I get at least 3/4 of them here!!!
My cooking tragedies
Was folling a Pampered chef recipe when I first began cooking. Pampered chef calls their big stock pots "casseroles" I don't know about you but to me a casserole is the type of dish my mom use to bake casseroles made from ceramic, glass or metal. Well since it was PC I decided that they must be talking about the stone casserole dish and was instructing me to place it on the stove. So I did and turned on the heat and it broke right in half. OH I was so frustrated!!! I later figured out my mistake and I still make that recipe to this day! It's one of my favorites!!! Having the proper tools makes all the difference!!!
