About this Cook
I'm 36, happily married to the love of my love of my life! We have 3 children a son (6), a daughter (2.5) and another son (3 months). I'm a stay at home Mom and I love it. We have a hectic schedule and creative meals in a hurry are the thing I like best. Trying to eat more healthy low GI foods as I also have PCOS and need a better diet to control my symptoms.
My favorite things to cook
Chili!!! I have a wonderful recipe that I guard jealously! Spaghetti, Lasagna, Garlic Chicken, and I love cooking all my hubby's favorite foods.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We are both Dutch by ancestry and also grew up in the Midwest. Olle Bollen on New Years Eve is a must, my special Sweet Potato bake for Thanksgiving & Christmas, Raisin Sauce on Ham, Dutch Butter Cake (so bad for you but so yummy).
My cooking triumphs
My Chili is the thing I am proudest of! Also pretty good with the Zucchini bread.
My cooking tragedies
Real Mashed potatoes are the bain of my existence, I hate making them and they usually suck. I'll stick to instant or baked.

I LOVED these! My hubby enjoyed and the kids actually ate them too. I used 2 Tbsp of brown sugar since it was the kids first time having beets, and I didn't have a tart apple but used a Jonagold with great success. Delicious!

Chocolate Zucchini Bread I
Delicious!!! I substituted 1 cup of wheat flour and 1 cup of splenda to help make it a little healthier and it turned out FABULOUS!

Best Chocolate Chip Cookies
Wonderful!!! I hate baking and usually screw it up, but these turned out perfect. The only thing I had to change was my baking time ... apparently air bake pans need an extra 3 minutes.
