About this Cook
Currently enjoying a leave of absence from work. Between studying for my degree and caring for my 3 children I love to cook.
My favorite things to cook
Anything new and/or comforting. I'm obsessed with expanding my cooking skills. Lately I've been baking a lot. I make fabulous chocolate cupcakes! My pot pie has become a family favorite as well.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family really likes fried Southern cuisine. I do too. But I've managed to find healthier ways of making it. My Grandmother was skeptical at first. But now she eats whatever I put in front of her.
My cooking triumphs
Pot Pie, Asian Beef stir fry and homemade desserts. I used to dream of cooking that way for my family. Now my hubby and kids gobble up everything I place on the table.
My cooking tragedies
I really haven't had any lately!!

Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies II
Just took a batch out of the oven and they're great. I followed the recipe exactly then added pecans toward the end. My kids love them. Can't wait for my hubby to try them when he gets home. This will be my go-to recipe for chocolate chip cookies now. The cookies are crisp on the outside yet soft and chewy in the center. Perfect!

Pizza Dough II
I've made this twice in as many weeks. Both my kids and hubby love it. We'll never buy pre-packaged crusts or dough again. In fact, this tastes better than most restaurants. The crust is firm yet tender. It definitely handled all the toppings I piled on.

Awesome Slow Cooker Pot Roast
This recipes was awesome. I followed the directions except I used Lipton Beefy-Onion soup mix. My husbad devoured it! He says it's the best roast I've ever made. Very tender and well seasoned. Tonight I'll use another reviewers suggestion and serve leftovers atop egg noodles. This recipes is definitely a keeper.
