About this Cook
I've always loved cooking. When I was growing up, my step-father was the household cook, and I always enjoyed helping out. I even once ended up completely covering the floor of a dorm room lounge with cooling Christmas cookies. Since having children, my favorite recipes are the ones that look and taste like they took all day to prepare, but really only took a matter of minutes! My slow cooker and bread machine are heavily used as a result!
My favorite things to cook
I love baking of all kinds - desserts, breads, cookies, bars, etc. This Christmas I plan on having a house full of cookies to give as gifts. I also like finding new ways to cook common things. Lately this has resulted in me finding new recipes for common things. My absolute favorite food so far is the "World's Best Lasagna" recipe on this site.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We don't really have any yet, but as my children are getting older, I'm sure we'll start some!
My cooking triumphs
Lasagna, a variety of breads (I'm the family baking queen).
My cooking tragedies
I once tried to make lemon bars using only Splenda instead of sugar - what a flop!

Easy Chicken Enchiladas
Just made this, had to review... I admit it, I licked the plate. The ONLY change I made was to skip the cheddar cheese on top and put sauce on top instead (nuked it because my family runs on 5 schedules). Delicious. If the kids are lucky, there will be some left when they get home.

Easy Meatloaf
Easy to make, went over well. Coarsely chopped the onion so kids picked it out, adults had no problem with it! Held firm too. Used 80% lean ground beef.

Chai Tea Mix
Loved this! Use McCormick's Chai Spice Blend rather than mixing up the spices myself, works wonderfully. My kids even like drinking it in place of hot cocoa.
