Ok, I have to say, I liked sausage before the first Johnsonville month, now after two months, I LOVE sausage.  I must have made at least 8 dinners with sausage this month.  Considering I eat out way more than I should, that is saying a lot.  Between the easy one dish pasta and the lasagna,… MORE

Bison

So my family is a pretty meat and potatoes kind of group, so I had to trick them into thinking Bison was steak, something that went over well for everyone but my son.  He knew something was up.  He looks up at me and inquisitively and I know he knows this is not the normal steak we serve.  He… MORE

OK, as I have stated previously, I love Beef - what better way to incorporate beef into your life than using Goya????  Goya Adobo can literally be the only thing in your spice rack, it works on every meat you could conjure up! The canned beans are awesome, not too mushy like some brands.  Oh… MORE

Being severely anemic, I have always craved beef, in anyway, every way, I love Beef.  We found out recently that my husband has high cholesterol, not from my cooking but from his love of fatty steak and cheese sandwiches from our local sub shop, he eats at least two or three a week.  He never… MORE

Thanksgiving is by far the most favorite of all holidays in my house.  Its sacred and I spend days preparing every year.  I start on Monday with all the baked goods for dessert.  Then Tuesday, I get all the food delivered, clean out the fridge and put everything away.  Wednesday, I cut up all… MORE

Well the month of October is always a hit in my house.  My husband and I take great pleasure in finding new and inventive ways to scare the kids.  The month started off great with my husband hiding in the back of the minivan at school pick up and popping up at just the right time.  With a few… MORE

I love butter, not like the eat it right out of the package kind of love, but I believe that butter adds so much to so many things, that margarine just wont do.  I am a diet guru, I know everything there is to know about losing weight and nutrition, although I am still 50 lbs overweight, at… MORE

I am so happy Thanksgiving Day is finally here.... I have so much to be thankful for, beautiful kids, amazing husband, excellent job.  Sometimes, I feel guilty (the Catholic upbringing I think) that I am so lucky to have all these amazing opportunities in my life.  I have never wanted for… MORE

I go through these stages where I cook like a maniac and then I wont cook for two weeks.  I had one of those creative days today when I made up two new recipes because I couldnt quite find what I was looking for on Allrecipes, and lets be honest, no other website compares - and no, I am not… MORE

About Me
I am a mother of two and I love to cook. When I was a stay at home mom, I would make a huge three course dinner every night. I spent all day cooking and cleaning and my kids have become true cooks themselves!
My favorite things to cook
I make great pizza and lasagna. I love to make bread too. I make amazing desserts as well and love to find new an inventive things to cook over a fire. We go camping a lot during the summer and I am always looking for some new way to cook fun foods while camping.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Potato Salad - my mom makes the best in the world. I make a huge Thanksgiving day dinner every year and its my favorite holiday - its a four day event and from breakfast to dessert, everything is made from scratch.
My cooking triumphs
I made a ton of food for a friends party and people were asking who the caterer was, that was pretty amazing. My husband and I have poker nights four or five times a year and some of our friends come solely for the food!
My cooking tragedies
I have made a few - usually the first time I make something its not great - but by the second or third time, I have figured it out! I once spent four hours cooking cannelloni al forno for an entire room full of people and forgot to boil the pasta, I had made it fresh, so I had to make spaghetti instead. I cried.
