About this Cook
Have only begun to really branch out into more homemade meals during the past few years, before I was too busy with my kids to do much more than cook out of a box. Now I find myself with more time on hand, and a desire to try new things!
My favorite things to cook
Nothing too fancy at this point! But really, I prefer "homestyle" meals, like chicken pot pie, casseroles, slow cooker meals, etc. and anything Italian.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Dumplings! My mother makes the best chicken & dumplings in the world.
My cooking triumphs
Making chicken alfredo from scratch and having it turn out perfect the first time!
My cooking tragedies
Trust me, there have been too many to count. I think the worst, though, was the first time I made meatloaf. It was a disaster! Still, 15 or so years later, I can still manage to ruin a perfectly good meatloaf without understanding why or how!

Cream Filled Cupcakes
These were okay, but my kids would much rather have the Hostess brand cupcakes. The cream in this tasted a little greasy.

Barbeque Style Braised Short Ribs
I don't personally like short ribs, but I made these for my husband and kids. They ate them up and said they were great!

Mouth-Watering Stuffed Mushrooms
Made these for the Superbowl earlier this year and they disappeared fast! Took awhile to make, but it was worth it.
