About this Cook
I'm a full time working mom of 4. My kids range from ages 15 to 6 and they are my best food critics. We love trying new recipes and cooking is definitely a family affair. My daughter and other half often have ideas for meals and love throwing out the challenge for me to make them! I'm Gluten intolerant so we enjoy tailoring recipes so I can still enjoy them with the rest of the family. With our busy schedule easy, simple and cheap meals are a must!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every Sunday is slow cooker Sunday. We love watching football while something delicious is simmering all day.
My cooking triumphs
Turning some of my favorite meals into Gluten free that the entire family not only enjoys but asks for on a regular basis has been the best accomplishment.

Farmer's Casserole
This is a favorite in my house and at my work potlucks. My stepdaughter hates eggs but loves this. You can throw it together the night before and bake it first thing the morning. It's also great as leftovers. This is also easy to adapt by changing cheeses and/or meat.

Best Brownies
Delicious and simple to make. I'm gluten free so I used GF flour and it still came out moist and flavorful. We topped with ice cream. I will never go back to boxed brownie mix.

The best wintertime meals need a long, slow simmer while you're doing something else.
