About this Cook
I am a mom of four kids, two of whom are picky eaters, and have been married to my husband, who is not a picky eater, since 1995. I work full-time in a job I love, which requires that I supervise a dining services manager. I love to cook for people who love to eat. I like to experiment.

Butternut Squash and Spicy Sausage Soup
Very good. Made as directed except used spicy venison sausage. Did not use optional cream, as it was rich enough without. The butternut squash as a soup base is something I'll try with other recipes.

Steff's Shepherd Pie
I've made Shepherd's Pie before (without a recipe - just trying to replicate someone else), but this was the best. I realized after I'd decided to make it that I didn't have cream of mushroom so I used cream of chicken. And I also realized I was out of green beans, so I used corn. I also added a few diced peppers to the hamburger meat while browning it. I diced the peppers and onions very tiny so that my kids wouldn't see them. I will definitely make it again, and I will try it with the green beans next time. Awesome family-friendly recipe.

Mustard Based BBQ Sauce
My daughter made this under my supervision for a large group as a side sauce for pulled pork. We followed the recipe exactly, doubling it; however as an oversight, we didn't actually cook the sauce like the directions say to. We did warm it in the microwave for about 30 seconds just before serving. I personally thought it was good but a little too much like honey mustard, but many of our guests said it was delicious, and my husband agreed with them.
