My favorite family cooking traditions
Creating new traditions with my own kids! I recently made (or tried to make) Spritz cookies with my grandmother's cookie press that is around 50 years old. That was truly a treat!
My cooking triumphs
The first time I made chili in my crock pot. It was FANTASTIC!
My cooking tragedies

Slow Cooker French Onion Soup
Made this recipe today for my family and it was a HUGE success!! I could not find the Emmental cheese, so I just used the Gruyere, Parmesan and Mozzarella. Next time I may just use a shredded 5 cheese italian and call it a day. Gruyere is expensive but oh so good! I did carmelize the onions and it was fantastic. I also used Swanson Beef Stock, fresh thyme and fresh Bay leaf as well. Sherry was the key. What a rich flavor this turned out to be. Definitely on my monthly rotation! Thank you!

After the popularity and rave reviews of this recipe, I have it baking as I type. Oh and if the bread tastes as good as the batter....this will be fantastic!!
