I am a 40 something year old working mom. I love baking and cooking and I always welcome new recipes. I love Mexican food! I love my crock pot! Easier the better. :)
My favorite things to cook
Easy Fiesta Kielbasa, my own recipe, made in the Crock. I love making BBQ and Chili also!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Pepper ham for dinner and ham biscuits for breakfast; both on Christmas only. :)
My cooking triumphs
A veggie soup I created on the stove top that was absolutely divine. I just dumped a bunch of different things to it and it was wonderful. My chili is usually pretty great and my best created recipe is the Easy Fiesta Kielbasa....so easy and delicious. My family loves it!
My cooking tragedies
A turkey I made for new family years ago. I tried to brine the turkey according to Emeril and the turkey wouldn't fit in anything but a trash bag. When I moved the bag from fridge to the sink the bag ripped and the turkey went in the floor. I cleaned the turkey well, which removed the brine and baked it as usual. It turned out good but my young son announced that I had dropped the turkey in the floor to our dinner guests. :/ YIKES! I was so embarrassed.
