Another one has come and gone.  For this mother of five, Halloween has evolved quite a bit over the past 27 years.  Where once this time of year meant burning the midnight oil sewing costumes, visiting the local pumpkin patch and selecting our pumpkins, carving and roasting seeds, decorating… MORE

About this Cook
A wife and mom of five beautiful children who love to eat! I absolutely love living in south Orange County, CA. I enjoy cooking for my family almost everyday. I derive such happiness from feeding people and filling their tummies with good food!
My favorite things to cook
I have a favorite peach cobbler dessert that my hubby loves and it is so easy to make. It puts a smile on anyone's face.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanksgiving dinner, Christmas eve dinner and St. Patricks Day dinner. My husband and kids look forward to these dinners each year.
My cooking triumphs
I cooked a huge prime rib dinner for Christmas last year for a large family dinner (20+) and it was delicious although a couple family members could not get over the very pink meat!
My cooking tragedies
A lemon meringue pie I cooked when I was about 18 years old would not set and it was full of liquid when I cut it. My dad still teases me about this to this day!

Easy Slow Cooker Ropa Vieja
I loved it! My husband and kids said it was just okay. Ingredients list says cut flank steak into thirds, but in instructions it states to use half of steak. No biggie, but it should be corrected. Served with white rice and black beans.

Three Cheese Tortellini with Traditional Sauce and Parmigiano Cheese
For others mentioning that they like home made better, well that's to be expected of most pre-made foods in my opinion. That being said, this is a decent quick dinner. Don't forget the basil leaves and use some good cheese too, not the green can if you can help it. I would prefer using Barilla Spicy Marinara sauce on this. It's hard to find but I buy it at Walmart. I'm not a huge fan of jarred sauces and the like but they do have their place in my pantry. Using my suggestions you may fool someone that you spent some time in the kitchen! Kinda like dressing up a "superstore" outfit with a designer handbag, shoes or jewelry. ;)
