About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
We love grilling all year - even in a snowstorm on our back deck! Mexican is probably our favorite.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Christmas cookie baking - we love to make and decorate dozens and dozens of cookies to give to family and friends.
My cooking tragedies
Sliceable gravy! Yep! Newlyweds having our best friends for dinner, first time in our new apartment. Did not know that cornstarch takes a few minutes of cooking time to develop. Well, roast and potatoes were ready but the gravy was too slow for me - added extra cornstarch, stirred it, turned it down and walked away. Came back and low and behold, I turned the pan completely upside down and it plopped out in a big, gelatinous blob! We have joked about my sliceable gravy for 35 years now!

Foolproof Rib Roast
A little hesitant using this recipe on such an expensive roast for Christmas Eve dinner. Put it in for the hour as suggested, turned it off and left for church. By the time we got back, put our potatoes in and turned the oven back on for the suggested 30 minutes. It was AWESOMELY delicious. Perfectly cooked!

Slow Cooker Texas Pulled Pork
My family LOVED this recipe! The only change I made was to leave out the bbq sauce because my hubby is not crazy about it, but I warmed some for the rest of us to add to our sandwiches. Delicious and a definite keeper!

Slow Cooker Italian Chicken Alfredo
My family loved this recipe even though I messed it up a bit! I followed the recipe exactly as shown EXCEPT, when I mixed the cream cheese and the soup together I thought no way would this become creamy, so I added a can of chicken broth. BIG mistake - it was way too thin. Follow the recipe exactly and your family will love you.
