About this Cook
I'm a wife and mother of four girls (1997 and younger) and love to make new meals for my family.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake and I love to make vegetarian meals. I've really loved making things like pretzels and bagels lately, although I do use a bread machine for the dough.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I loved when we would all get together and bake when I was growing up.
My cooking triumphs
Getting my daughters to think of a recipe as their own.
My cooking tragedies
I always wanted to make divinity from a teenager on. Problem was I would try to make it without a thermometer. That never went very well

Slow-Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup
Wow I'm glad I tried this. Threw in rotel instead of the canned chillis and added black beans. I only added about 3/4 cup corn. Was absolutely wonderful. I did make the soft tortilla strips in the oven with a little garlic salt and they were great too.

Quick and Easy Pizza Crust
I always cook it at 425 and it cooks more evenly than at 450. Love it! It's a great balance between rising for a long time and putting it in the pan right away. The kids love it. It's a bready crust.

Creamed Tuna On Toast
I rated 5 but I changed the recipe and left out the milk. I actually just threw together a can of tuna to a can of condensed soup and heated it up. The milk would have made it way too runny.
